Their project involved maintaining the approach into Dripsey from the Coachford side. This includes two of their projects. The Lanterns & Baskets on the Bridge (2014) & the Cottage Project (2015). They continue to keep these projects looking beautiful all year round with both seasonal and summer flowers.
