The ‘Secrets of Stone’ is a day of talks and discussions all about our geological heritage. It’s going to be a great day, of interest to anyone who’s ever stopped to enjoy the scenery, marvelled at a fossil, or puzzled over a rock, and especially to hillwalkers and climbers. (Saturday, March 24th, Collins Barracks)
Organised by the National Museum, there will be talks on everything from Ireland’s oldest industry (mining), to what’s so important about a load of old rocks. Ingenious Ireland will be there, talking about our geology MP3 walking tour of Dublin.
Tickets cost €15 — and we have two FREE tickets to give to one lucky person. To enter, simply tell us what’s your favourite Irish place or landscape in the comment form below. Closing date March 16, when we’ll pick one lucky winner.
