20th Anniversary Celebrations

27 August 2015, Kildorrery


All roads lead to The Irish Tree Centre in Kildorrery this Saturday, August 29 2015, as it celebrates 20 years in operation by hosting its Big Day Out event in support of Epilepsy Ireland.

Irish Tree Centre Founder Peadar Collins, is putting the word out that everybody is invited to attend to join in the celebrations which will run from noon until 6pm.

The Irish Tree Centre is a leading mature tree nursery serving clients nationwide, with their very own selection of both mature and semi-mature trees. Their comprehensive selection of ornamental trees, produced in their tree nurseries, or specially imported, coupled with their design and care expertise, make the Irish Tree Centre your premium partner in adding beauty to your estate.

Speaking to The Avondhu, Peadar Collins said that 1995 seems like only yesterday and that it’s hard to believe that the centre is celebrating 20 years in business already. “We hope that this open day will set us on course for the next 20 years. It’s no harm to reboot the business and shake off the recession as we are working our way out of it. Over the past 20 years we have really enjoyed working with people’s interesting projects. It’s great to do something so worthwhile that still lasts and will continue to do so. Autumn is soon coming, come and see the trees looking their best in leaf and make plans.”

This Saturday, in addition to supporting an extremely worthy cause in Epilepsy Ireland, visitors will be have the perfect opportunity to learn how to beautify their garden whilst having a wonderful family day out. Experts from The Irish Tree Centre will be on hand to give advice, answer questions and introduce visitors to their huge range of mature trees.

As it's a special day a 20% discount is on offer and all activity sales on the day go to the charity.

The 20th anniversary Big Day Out event in support of Epilepsy Ireland is jam packed with attractions for the whole family with live music from the Hilltop Hobos, the opportunity to bid for an exclusive tree-themed print by prominent artist Solimar Harper, munch on a roast pig on a spit donated by Phillip O'Brien and cooked by Adare Farms, enjoy Silver Pail ice-cream served by the Irish Tree Centre mini-chefs. There will also be free tours on a golf buggy around the centre.

The Irish Tree Centre is located just outside the village of Kildorrery and ample parking is available. Visitors can look forward to a wonderful day no matter what the weather as there are indoor as well as outdoor activities.
