As we begin making plans for the Dublin Garden Festival 2014, we decided to step back in time to 1988 and the Flower Festival of Christ Church Cathedral. Organised in celebration of the Dublin’s Millennium and 950 years of Christ Church Cathedral, over 100,000 blooms were arranged in stunning poses by the Association of Irish Flower Arrangers inspired by the ‘Dublin Down the Ages’ theme. As a result of the Festival, £10,000 was contributed to the Organ Fund. Of equal importance was the pleasure derived by the 13,000 visitors, perhaps best summed up by one visitor leaving the Festival who was heard to greet a friend with the words, “I’ve just been in heaven”. We look forward to echoing this sentiment this year.
We look forward to repeating this success this year from, Friday 13th until Sunday 15th June 2014.
