Sunday in Carrickroe   Part 1

The sun  shone down, the crowds came out, participation in all the games and activity was high, the children enjoyed all the fun, the adults enjoyed all the fun too, the committee did a magnificent job in making sure everything went smoothly, there was something for everyone, it can only be described as a 'very successful festival'. Sunday began with the Tractor Run in aid of Cancer Treatment Support, they were part of the parade from Church to Festival field, and the parade was led by the Brantry Pipe Band. Monaghan Community Brass Band gave a recital in the Field as did the Brantry. The Corvernieos entertained and Philsfarm animals drew a lot of interest. There were plenty of games for children and the strong men tested their might on Throwing the Sheaf and Hanging from the Bar and not the drinking kind. Truagh Macra had a couple of competitions going to help raise funds and races for youth gave more children a reason to remember the day. Ciaran Rosney and his band were making the toes tap in the Marquee and he played for the Jiving competition. This attracted a big crowd and there were prizes for the top three couples. There were many other things going on and it was a very busy day for all members of the organising committee but all went extremely smoothly. The final act of the Festival was The Fuzzy Burgers who once again filled the venue and were praised for the quality of their performance. I know I have left someone out but everything that happened all gelled to make it a great day for all.
