Wild Child Day

As part of National Heritage Week, Sandra McQuaid, and the Heritage section of Monaghan County Council, organised a Wild Child Day in Rossmore Park on Wednesday August 23rd last. It began at 10.00am and finished at 4.00pm and it was a very successful event as big number participated and all enjoyed the day as well as learning about nature and having fun in the process. There was Electro Fishing, Nature Walks, Face Painting, Pond Dipping, Workshops on Nature and lots of other interesting activities. Refreshments were available but most took a picnic with them and it was terrific to see families scattered around the grounds enjoying the picnic. Monaghan Civil Defence were present and County Council staff were on hand to provide the learning and answer the questions. Well done to all involved.
