The Bealtaine Choir at the Bloom Festival

A busy day at the Bloom Festival

We had a very exciting and busy day at the Bloom Festival yesterday in Pheonix Park, Dublin, when the Samaritans garden, “You Talk, I’ll Listen” won a gold medal for best medium show garden.

President Michael D. Higgins and his Wife Sabina stopped by to visit the garden and in the afternoon the Bealtaine Choir visited the garden for some singing in the rain.

Volunteers from branches across Ireland will be on hand over the weekend to speak to festival goers about the garden and the services which we provide.

If you don’t have a chance to visit the garden over the weekend, the garden will be featured on the Bloom Special on RTE 1 tonight at 8pm.
