About the Curragh on Brigid's Day

A discussion on the amenity aspects of the Curragh plains is the subject of a coffee morning event on St Brigid's Day on Monday, writes Brian Byrne.

The event is being hosted by Deputy Martin Heydon at the National Stud and will start at 11am.

The Minister of State with Special Responsibility for the OPW, Simon Harris TD, will be there. Local historian Mario Corrigan will also speak about the heritage of St Brigid in the area.

The Curragh is a very important area for heritage, topographical, environmental and leisure, used by thousands of local people on a regular basis, and anyone with an interest in it might find it worthwhile to drop by.
