IT WAS BACK to the ’60s at the Wick­low Fed­er­a­tion ICA Guild of the Year Com­pe­ti­tion which took place re­cently.

Ten guilds from across County Wick­low were rep­re­sented at the event at the Wood­en­bridge Ho­tel.

Mem­bers from Hol­ly­wood, Ash­ford, Bal­ly­coog, Moneystown, Avoca, Wick­low town, Bray, Del­gany, Ti­na­hely and New­town­moun­tkennedy did them­selves proud as they put on colour­ful and imag­i­na­tive dis­plays with a ’60s theme.

The fancy dress was a sight to be­hold and the en­tire event was a fun and en­ter­tain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all. There was an ar­ray of won­der­ful cro­chet flower power hats, colour­ful tie dye t-shirts, and amaz­ing cakes.

Mem­bers also wrote about their mem­o­ries of the 1960s. The large at­ten­dance also en­joyed the five-minute en­ter­tain­ment with a ’60s theme put on by each of the guilds with a huge va­ri­ety of ideas ac­com­pa­nied by the sounds of the six­ties.

Then the ladies who had dressed in ’60s style strut­ted their stuff be­fore the re­sults were an­nounced.

The judges, Mary He­garty and Sheila Clancy, had re­ally dif­fi­cult jobs as the stan­dard of each en­try was very high.

The over­all win­ner was Del­gany Guild, who also won the prize for Best Dis­play Ta­ble, Best En­ter­tain­ment and tied with Wick­low town for Best Cake.

Wick­low town came sec­ond also win­ning the crafts sec­tion with a beau­ti­ful Cro­chet Flower Power Hat.

Ti­na­hely Guild came third and the prize for Best Tie Dye T-Shirt was won by New­town­moun­tkennedy Guild while the Hol­ly­wood Guild picked up the prize for Writ­ten Mem­o­ries. It was a mem­o­rable night en­joyed by all.
