A DIF­FER­ENT ball game was played at Rope­work Park in Lochgilp­head re­cently when Mid Ar­gyll Rugby Club hosted the lat­est Dal­ri­ada Fes­ti­val.

Warm, sunny weather at­tracted a lot of friends and fam­ily along to show their sup­port and en­joy what turned out to be a great show of qual­ity mini rugby.

All the teams played well on the day with plenty of try-scor- ing and ex­cit­ing ac­tion as all the teams put on a fine dis­play of sports­man­ship and spirit.

Al­lan said: ‘A mas­sive thanks to ev­ery­one who came along to the Dal­ri­ada fes­ti­val at Mid Ar­gyll. Fan­tas­tic
