We are asking participants to pick up materials they will need for the gathering at the Clogher Beach location of Louis Mulcahy's Pottery Shop sometime between 2pm and 5 pm on April 11, 2012. Those who cannot make it on this date and at this time are asked to call the notify the organizers so we can make arrangements to get your packet to you.
This is an easy-to-find location and the stop here will be an enjoyable one. We will have a table in the upstairs cafe area where you can collect your packet that will contain the following important items: tickets to the conference (free --but tickets should help to guarantee seating); tickets to the Ferriter Art Reception (not free but cost is kept to a minimum). You will also learn about your group's options for a small-group, guided trek to the Castle Ferriter. And you will get to sign up for the 'Dinner and Lore' options to take place later in the evening on this date.
One must see the Louis Mulcahy shop when coming to Ballyferriter. Louis has been a potter for forty years. He received an honorary degree from the National University of Ireland in recognition of his art and his contribution to the community culture. The cafe in the upstairs part of the shop serves local lunch fare and you may wish to stop for a bite to eat and some tea. Items served here include: Dingle organic salmon and Dingle Peninsula Cheeses; smoked mackerel pate with local brown bread or local seaweed bread; homemade soups, cakes, scones, and daily specials. Irish milk and organic teas from Galway are used. When in season, lettuce, tomatoes, and herbs are supplied by people who work in the pottery shop and cafe.
The shop is located on R559 southwest of Ballyferriter's town area at Clogher Beach. You can't miss the shop as it has large pottery masks positioned beneath the palm trees --welcoming visitors. The GPS co-ordinates for the shop are N 52 degrees 09.191' W 010 degrees 27.260'. The shop's phone number is 353 (0) 66 91 56229.
