Banbridge Historical Society’s Annual Outing this year is to the beautiful Cooley Peninsula and Greenore. The outing is fully booked and there is a waiting list.
A bus will leave Banbridge Leisure Centre at 9 30 am on Thursday 4th June and travel to the Greenore Museum for morning coffee.
In the past sailing on a ship that set out from Greenore was quickest way to get from Belfast to London’s Euston Station. As a result Greenore was a transport hub with express trains arriving Belfast timed to connect with the ferry that sailed at 8 00pm. The Museum promises to provide a very interesting visit.
A light lunch will be served in the nearby golf club after which the party will go on an exciting Mystery Tour with a special treat in store!
After the special treat the party will return to the Golf Club for dinner. It is hoped to return to Banbridge at approximately 6 30pm.
