Adare Field Meeting
June 2nd 2015
The annual Methodist 'field meeting' is held on the first Tuesday of each June at 12.00 noon beside the stone which marks the site on which John Wesley (founder of Methodism) preached to the people of Adare "in or about the year 1756". The site is now in the middle of the Adare Manor Golf course, and the club happily suspends play to facilitate the Methodist worship. The field meeting, traditionally a day long affair for Methodists, is now an open air service followed by a picnic. The tradition continues and this years field meeting is on the 3rd of June.
for more about the field meeting see 1999 IPA Journal No.10 pg.10
