The Irish Branch of the Society
of Recorder Players meets every month from September to June
in Booterstown Community Centre, Booterstown, Co. Dublin, near
the centre of Dublin.
We meet on the third Saturday of each month, except when this
might cause problems for members, e.g. major public holidays such
as Christmas, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, etc. (See the Programme
of meetings for exact dates.)
