Family Community Fun Day 


A fantastic Day was had in Fr.Dowling Park Rhode last Bank Holiday Monday despite the Heavy showers but they did not deter the massive crowd who enjoyed such a jam packed fun day. There were so many fantastic events that took place on the day from The Dunk Tank to face painting and everything in between. A massive Thank you must go to all our Volunteers from the GAA committee, those that gave a hand, the Youth Club , Community games , Comhlatas without whose help it would not have made it such a brilliant event. Particular thanks to Herbie & Yvonne Martin who were fantastic chefs looking after the BBQ, Croi Laighean Edenderry for their fantastic sponsorship of Free Ice Creams for all the kids and Balloons. Rhode Community Centre for the tables and chairs, Declan Cox and Peter Kilmurray for Micro-phone and Speakers. The Dunk Thank Volunteers for letting us nearly drowned ya. On the day our Monster Auction took place with a massive 23-24 lots were sold. A big thank you to all who supported the Auction your support in greatly appreciated.  Hope you all had a very enjoyable day
