Great Grandma Iris Dungan was 100 years old in March, she opened her Cottage Garden ten years ago to raise funds for both the local church and the Co Wexford Community Workshop in Enniscorthy.
This was a success and was repeated for her 95th birthday when the garden had been further extended. The 28th of June was the date earmarked for her third Open Garden but with the circumstances, the hope is to raise funds first and have the garden open when possible. As a result, she has a website set up, click on www.greatgrandmasgarden.com and have a look.
The established garden in Monart near Enniscorthy. She tended it, with her husband Victor when they retired in 1984. Victor passed away in 1994 and since then this has been a major daily passion for Iris.
The goal is to raise €5,000 to share between the 2 charities. As the physical event is looking unlikely in the near term, go to the website to take a virtual tour.
