Last September a group of nine travelers and library supporters from the Craftsbury area spent eight days in County Kerry Ireland. Led by Craftsbury Public Library Director Susan O’Connell, the tour was designed to showcase the natural and historical wonders of the beautiful and rugged “Kingdom of Kerry” in Ireland’s Southwest. The group visited ancient stone forts, medieval castle ruins, sandy beaches, and manor houses. They went on a naturalist walk, tried their hand at falconry, and walked along ocean cliffs.
On Sunday, January 6 at 7pm, the group will reunite at the Craftsbury Public Library to share photographs and stories of their trip. This event is free and open to the public. Following the presentation, Susan O’Connell will be available to talk about the next tour to Ireland with anyone interested. The 2019 fundraising tour is scheduled for September 16-23.
