Parish fun day reaps ¤17,000
A FANTASTIC family fun day was had by all at the St. Patrick’s Parish Fair in Greystones last Saturday.
One of the biggest social events in the parish’s calendar, the fair was a phenomenal success raising in the region of ¤ 17,000.
The proceeds will be shared with the St. Patrick’s Parish fund and Barrettstown Serious Fun that is located in Ballymore Eustace.
From 11 a. m. to 2 p. m. parents and kids browsed the over 20 stalls that filled St. Patrick’s School.
There was a wide variety of pieces to be bought from the stalls that included a bottle stall, crafts and gifts stall, a treasure- trove and country produce.
There was also some great activi- ties for the kids to enjoy like a tennis/ soccer competition, clay modelling with Walter and face painting.
While the kids played away parents enjoyed tea, coffee and home baking in the courtyard as the October sunshine made it a great day to be outdoors.
The main raffle of the day that had a top prize of ¤ 500 raised a massive ¤ 5,000 alone.
‘ The day is a great social event and this year was no exception. It was a great success and we are delighted with the huge amount that was raised,’ said co- ordinator of the fair Robert Mowatt, ‘ I would like to thank everyone for their support and for their help on the day that made the event such a great success.’
