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.
