All set for the Donoughmore Carnival
IT'S July, the evenings are long and bright so that means it's time for the annual Donoughmore Carnival.
The long running, ever evolving festival runs from Thursday to Sunday, July 17-20 and this year it includes a special bonus Legend of Luke Kelly concert.
New innovations to the festival this year include 'The Fittest Four' competition, sponsored by Juliet Murphy Health and Fitness Club, with a substantial first prize of €400.
Also new this year is a jujitsu and children's acrobatics demonstration; teddy bears' picnic with Cork Music Club and a contractors tug of war competition.
And, of course, there's the established festival favourites, such as the Donoughmore 7 road race, Bingo Bonanza and inter-townland tug of war.
Meanwhile, McCormack's Amusements will provide the funfair throughout.
The main event of Donoughmore Carnival is the day long festivities on the Sunday, where attractions include a farmers' market, Munster Tug of War Championship, novelty dog show, Timed Loom Band competition, sheaf tossing, bonny baby competition and many many more.
The evening concludes with a BYOB open mike singing night. Normally this would bring proceedings to a close but, as a special extra event, The Legend of Luke Kelly will perform a once off concert to wrap things up in style this year.
