This time of year is always so filled with promise. From the "grand stretch in the evening" to the first showing of snowdrops and daffodils, nature is indeed blooming everywhere you look. Including in the March / April issue of Ireland of the Welcomes.

And with that in mind in the March / April issue of Ireland of the Welcomes, we visit The National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, and explore the award-winning greenhouses, walks, and extraordinary plant collection. Staying in Dublin, we also shine a light on the historic General Post Office and the often-written about Royal Canal. 

History is, of course, that which ties us all together, and in this issue, we look at ten Irish people who made their mark on global history but between the jigs and the reels are possibly not given the recognition they deserve. 

We also visit Maynooth and take stock of Ireland's oldest tree, as well as investigating the life and times of architect James Hoban who designed The White House.

Enjoy!
