A virtual trip in the mountains with Henry McKEE

Join us on 16 June for our next online meeting as Henry McKee takes us on a virtual trip in the mountains                                                        

Just as important as English climbers in Switzerland is the role of English, Scottish and Irish mountaineers in France and in particular the French Alps. This talk covers the romantic poets visiting Chamonix in the 18th century through to the "tigers" who surprised the French climbing world between the 1950s and now. We touch on the Irish pioneer from County Carlow who, in 1861, first described the effects of greenhouse gases on global warming and the Scotsman who was the first to study the science of glaciers.

Virtual Picnic by Zoom

on Saturday 22nd May 2021 at 2pm till 3pm

(The Link will be emailed to MEMBERS ONLY* on mercredi 22 mai 2021 )

Sadly, due to the ongoing Covid restrictions the CFB picnic cannot be held as a public gathering in Wallace Park Lisburn as we had planned in our original 2020-2021 programme. Instead, we propose a short virtual picnic by Zoom on Saturday 22nd May 2021 at 2pm till 3pm. 
Looking forward to seeing you on 19th and 22nd May.

Prenez soin de vous et de vos proches,

À bientôt,
