“Tea at the Lodge”
What a great day last Sunday at Mountain Lodge for tea and cakes.The memories and stories were evoked as the constant stream of visitors made their way to this ionic building.On the day Edwin Fitzgerald was awe inspiring ,as he, now well into his nineties spoke of his connection with Mountain Lodge since 1939.
Cllr. Marie Murphy made a presentation to the Restoration Committee of a framed drone view of the Lodge, identical to that presented to Charles and Camilla on the occasion of the Royal visit. Cllr. Murphy was also acknowledged by the Committee with a plaque to thank her in her capacity as Cathaoirleach for the funding for safety fencing at Mountain Lodge.
“Tea at the Lodge” again on June 12.
