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.

We had a great turn out, especially the kids, so thanks to all of you.

Winners are as follows race one;
Sally Cattigan €100
Charlie Mc Allister €75
Frank Moran €50

Race Two:
John Hegarty €100
Ciaran Nally €75
Teresa Reynolds €50

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.

So Terry Clews and Michael Campbell , thanks guys for everything ye do.

Also thank you to Tighe’s Centra Rooskey for selling our ducks and Ciaran Fallon for giving us power for our Mc on the day the wonderful Paul Neary.

Shane and Callie are our kayaking team for the duck race and during our festival but not only do they do this they have both volunteered at other occasions. Shane sold tickets on St. Patrick’s Day and Callie was one of our Roses.

A hugely enjoyable night was had by all in Coxes Dromod, and a big thanks to all our Roses, their escorts, the sponsors, the judges, the wonderful Brendan Farrell, but especially the great support of the public who came and supported this event.

It was the final fundraiser before the actual Rooskey Heritage Festival, so we really appreciate the time and effort from all.

Each of the ladies were a joy and we had some craic for the evening with them.  Each showed themselves to talented, confident young ladies, each performing admirably in front of a large crowd. Brendan Farrell interviewed each, and each then did a ‘bit’, a poem, a song, a demonstration :D. The crowd loved it.

While nobody loses, the judges crowned Matasha Mahady the overall winner.  Congrats Natasha, we think your particular
