Planning to put in a pond? Need some help?

There is also a chance to sign up for pond dipping in Slieve Gullion Forest Park in the afternoon (booking separately on the Ring of Gullion website).

This workshop is free. If you would like to book your place, visit the website or call into the office in Crossmaglen Community Centre, O’Fiaich Square, Crossmaglen, BT35 9AA Tel:-(028) 3082 8590.
