They spin in The Irish National Heritage Centre ( https://www.irishheritage.ie ) once a month and various other places in addition.
They are a lovely group and I've been spinning away with them since - of note, we went to the Tinahely Agricultural show ( www.tinahelyshow.ie ) as a group in the woolly corner (along with a variety of sheep and fleece) which was great fun not least as the lunch served there was of very good quality.

All the biggest house renovations have been completed and the place is quite lovable now - though the garden is a mess and we've had no luck finding Landscaping assistance so far. However many of the worst elements have been tackles.
Great to be able to walk to Wexford fort in minutes.
Sheep fleece is now residing in the very small attic and I do have a fine craft area to spin and prep fibre in without always having to clear everything away owing the the presence of a second table around the corner in the kitchen area.
We have a very short walk to the shops and only a little further to Wexford Harbour. Short drives to Rosslair beach and Curracloe beach are regulars for me and Collie Connie. There a many other places to visit and walk (Johnstown Clatle and grounds, Ferrybank etc).
The Faithe Window Boxes July/August 2019 (more of a thing for loveTheSeasons really).
The weather has finally changed this September 22 'though we can't complain after the pretty glorious summer we had.
Anyway, I can get on with crafts in my NEW CRAFT AREA :).
I'm on the second sleeve of a top-down knitted cards using my maroon hand-spun Merino.
It looks as though it might Fionn Mac Comhaill when complete yet it seems to kinda fit when I try to on me. Ah well - we'll see.
Adding more ribbing at the end to balance out the heavy top part of the card. - One very good thing about top-down garments, it is possible to provisionally cast off at the bottom and revive the stitches to add more rib later - unlike the situation when one casts on and goes rib-up.
Two of my knitted rugs were sold from Irish Fibre Crafters in Ardrahan, Co. Galway, (www.IrishFibreCrafters.com ) where I left them under the auspices of Sandra, the lovely creator of same. Very glad they were found to be attractive to another and gone off into the world - so I can go right ahead and make more with a clear conscience :).
