President’s garden party

Last Friday a group from Cork travelled up to Dublin to Áras an Uachtaráin. They were invited to attend a gospel concert as part of the garden party season at the president’s residence.

Assumpta made the president a lovely little quilt as well, which was handed to him personally. The wall hanging depicts a Galway Hooker (pattern unknown):

In the photo: Marie Sprott, President Michael D. Higgins, Assumpta Lydon, Siobhán Miller Stone, Margaret Twomey, Ellis Watson and Nora Healy. Frances McCarthy enjoyed the evening too, but missed the photo opportunity.

More photos from the event can be found on the president’s website:

The ladies made the president’s social media accounts, too:
