The Christ Church Association Ireland Event
On a peninsula to the north of Dublin, with breathtaking views over the Bay, sits Howth Castle. It is 13th century in origin but much altered subsequently, notably in the mid 18th century and in 1910 by Lutyens. Thanks to Old Member Julian Gaisford St. Lawrence (1976) the Association held a black tie dinner here on Saturday 18th June 2011.
On Sunday 19th June we were also very fortunate that the Hon. Dr Desmond Guinness (1951) invited Association members to visit Leixlip Castle, with origins in the 12th century, for a private tour and lunch. Later on in the evening, Lord Rosse invited House men and women to Birr Castle for a light supper and concert of chamber music.
