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.
Day two of the visit to Wicklow by Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.
Prince Charles headed to Kilmacurragh Gardens for a walkabout with head gardener Seamus O'Brien. The Duchess visited Avoca, home to the oldest weaveing mill in Ireland, where Master Weaver Martin Keogh demonstrated weaving on an original loom.
Seamus, so proud of you, a great representative for our country.
Lovely place of natural beauty
Was there last year
When are they due to visit Wicklow Animal Welfare/Traveller Animal Welfare? It would be terrific to get a focus on animal welfare in Ireland, to raise some awareness of the struggles Rescues are going through here and for them to see more than just the 'beauty spots' 🙂
