Maria Gillen grew up in Mayfield, Cork City. She spent many happy childhood hours in Ennismore - a beautiful landmark and farm run by the Dominican order. The brothers moved out and Ennismore shut its doors in 2023. The end of an era and a huge loss to the locals of Mayfield - but the stories live on! Maria tells the stories of the trees of Ennismore - the baby Redwood, still only 100 years old!, the Ginko tree, a present from Japan with its ability to survive the atomic bomb, the magical secret garden with its magnificent Story Tree. As the special grounds pass into history the beautiful stories remain 🧡✨️🪄
