Green tea and Japanese flower arranging will be the order of the day at a special coffee morning, taking place on Saturday, in senator Niall Ó Brolcháin’s clinic in Salthill.
The event takes place from 11am to 1pm in the clinic at 52 Lower Salthill and it will be hosted by Rev Patrick Towers, the former rector of St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church.
There will be a display of Japanese flower arranging from Rev Towers and Yoshimi from the Wa Café. Yoshimi will also perform a Japanese green tea ceremony and given an origami demonstration.
“A ‘green’ philosophy will underpin all of the aesthetic offerings of the morning’s event,” said Rev Towers. “It is not just about tasting tea but a taste of the pleasure of human flourishing. The overall aim is to encourage the flourishing of the individual, and community, and the environment.”
Rev Towers is encouraging all Galwegians, regardless of their politics, to come and attend. Admission is free but donations for the Ábalte School for children with autism are welcome.
