The big heave!
AMONGST the traffic on North Wexford roads recently was a bed being pushed by members of the Ballygarrett Tidy Towns Association, to raise some much-needed funds.
The bed push began in Bally-canew and went from there to Gorey, then on to Courtown and then the final stretch to Ballygarrett. A total of 45 people, divided over three different legs of the journey and according to one of the organisers, Bernie Byrne, they were well up to the challenge. 'It wasn't too bad actually,' she said. 'But I'm sure there were plenty of people tired the following morning, after the evening's entertainment!'
The group were joined for a part of the journey by Catherine O'Loughlin and the O'Duffy Cup and then finally made it back to The Macamore Inn for a well earned drink. Entertainment was provided by Tom's Junior Trad Group, the Deirdre Furlong School of Dancing and Collie.
While the final figure for the amount raised for Ballygarrett Tidy Towns is still being calculated, the organisers are confident that it was a great success. Bernie said: 'We would like to thank everyone in the community for their support in the form of sponsorship and donations.'
