The ever popular Kayak and Canoe and Climbing Wall activities return. We can now confirm that the water based activities that are so popular will return. We will have the incredibly popular canoe and kayak activities under control of the Shannon River Adventure crew, and they are bringing the little bit scary Climbing Wall. 🙂 People love it (rather them than me!).
Thank You for Your Sponsorship !!!

The Kiltimagh Pet Farm Returns……. (Yes!!!!)
They will visit us on Saturday with a variety of exotic and domestic animals for you to come and meet.
Hugely popular with kids of all ages 🙂 we are really happy that we can bring this popular attraction back in 2018.
Please note that it is ONLY on Saturday, as the animal care is important to us and the people at Kiltimagh Pet Farm.
Towards the end of last year we where grant aided €2.500 from Boyle Municipal District funding. Thanks for the capital grant, we think we’ve made the besto f it.
With this money we purchased 10 gazebos in a variety of colours and 7 foldup tables.
These items will be used to facilitate our food and craft stalls this year and other events during the year.
Great atmosphere at the Easter Rooskey Duck Race.
It was a bit of quack, very egg-citing, and certainly not a bit re-duck-ulous. Thanks for all the support, we had a great turnout, especially since the Roscommon team was playing later in the day.

Winners are as follows race one;
Sally Cattigan €100

The Manic Ukes entertained many of the duck followers in Noels Bar after the race, and were a hugh success. We’ll see more of this mob at the Rooskey Heritage Festival itself 😀
We also want to make a special point of thanking our volunteers for the day without whom this madness would not be possible. Volunteers are really the foundation of our Festival.
