Visit Wicklow

His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, made a stop at the famous monastic site at Glendalough yesterday, during the second day of the Royal visit to Wicklow.

At one of Ireland’s most scenic landmarks, Glendalough Upper Lake, HRH met a class of local school children from Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa who are engaged in the National Park’s Education Programme, where the carry out activities like pond dipping, moth trapping, and animal tracks and signs.

The Wicklow Mountains National Park team then presented The Prince with an oak tree grown from a Glendalough acorn.

The Prince of Wales also met with members of the Glen of Imaal Mountain Rescue Team and the Dublin & Wicklow Mountain Rescue Team, including search dog Rowan. His Royal Highness was shown "Glen Charlie", one of the Glen Team's emergency response vehicles, which was sponsored by The Froud Foundation, a charity set up by a family living in the UK who tragically lost their son in a plane crash in the Wicklow mountains.

Visit Wicklow

While visiting Wicklow today, Prince Charles enjoyed a tour of the stunning Botanic Gardens at Kilmacurragh, with Head Gardener Seamus O’Brien.

His Royal Highness heard about restoration plans for Kilmacurragh House, which has fallen into disrepair. Built in 1697, the house was owned by the Acton family, three of whom fought in World War 1.
