Rural Men's Group Mark Tenth Birthday

Rural Men’s Group Mark Tenth Birthday!

The next Rural Men’s outing is this Thursday, 14th November and will be a celebration of our first ten years of activity.  In November 2009 at the Red Fox Inn near Glenbeigh, the group held its first social gathering and since then members have gone on numerous day trips, tea dances and overnight trips around the country.

To mark the achievements of the Rural Men’s Group over the decade, they decided to return to the same venue and also take in some local attractions, details below.

The group wants new members!
If any of this appeals to you (or someone you know) make contact at any SKDP Reception desks.


  • Tea and chat in Glencar Community Center
  • Presentation on the KerryLIFE project
  • Visit Kerry Bog Village
  • Three course dinner at the Red Fox Inn
