Wendy Walsh:wfw burren (2)

It is with deepest regret that we heard of the recent death of Wendy Walsh, an honorary member of the Irish Garden Plant Society, a woman  who was not only admired for her wonderful work but also loved for her great kindness and generosity. On behalf of the Irish Garden Plant Society I wish to extend my condolences to her family and friends. 

Paddy Tobin, IGPS Chairman
