garden talk dublin

Saturday 9th July I was honoured to have been invited to give a talk to a group of horticulturists, garden designers and landscape architects that had travelled from Germany to Ireland. Above, pictured with some of the group.

On this occasion the lecture, if you will, took place at Ireland’s National Botanic Gardens, Dublin.

My thanks to the Catherine, Donall, Paul and the team at The Bots who (as always and again) looked after me so very well. Thank you, so very much.

Video Interview: Peter Donegan, Landscaping Dublin. Since 2001.

In 2001, aged just 24 (about to be 25) I started Donegan Landscaping.

My good friend Eoin of Directing Media has wanted to interview me for sometime. The publishing of this short interview video coincidentally coincides with my 15th Birthday in business. There is a longer version. But I’ll leave that for another day, for now.

Thank you all. For everything.

2016: Temple Street Childrens Hospital, You, Me, Inis Mor and A Half Marathon

This coming April 8 – 10th, 2016 I am again heading for another Temple Street Half Marathon on the fantabulous island of Inis Mór – it’s just off the edge off Galway – there are some more images below.

The reasons why Temple Street is so close to my heart slightly to one side, this year hopefully will be my 6th to run, sprint, crawl somehow complete the half marathon on Inis Mór for Temple Street Childrens University Hospital.

As noted the last year and two:

Chatting this morning, the suggestion was that I could have opted out, that I’m busy with work and that haven’t I done it for the last 3 [now 4] years. But there’s also the argument for my being lucky [is that even the right word to use ?], that a bit perspective in a world gone mad isn’t such a bad thing and a very strong case for doing something to give a little back.

Happy Christmas and Happy, New Year 2016

I’ve always done one of these videos. I’m not too sure why but, maybe a little like sprouts, mince pies and aftershave adverts, the metaphors of which I will never fully understand; it simply has to be.

In the meantime, thank you for being part of my 2015. The coffee pot is always on.

Chat soon,
Peter
