This Tree was Planted in February 2008
In Memory Of
The Late Mary Murphy
Chairperson Board of Management Glen Resource & Sports Centre From 1998 to 2007
We have not done this in a while but I was reminded of the benefit of living with and watching the life and seasons of a tree when I recently came across trees recognising a life passed.
I remember the first time I heard of Gerry Adams regularly taking time out to hug trees. I thought it strange and beyond logic. That was when he hugged a tree in the White House garden. I have yet to hug my first tree but I do regularly touch trees that I pass.
Nature does provide therapeutic benefit…..
