Magic candelit walk in grounds of historic house

Published 07/11/2012 | 09:00

SUNDAY, November 11 is the date to experience a magical candlelight walk in the beautiful grounds of Avondale House.

For a number of years this event has been a highlight in what is often the dullest and dreariest month of the year.

All proceeds are in aid of the Ballinacor Community Park which now contains a full sized playing pitch, boardwalk, tennis and basketball courts, the funds for which have been raised by a hard-working committee from the local community.

The next stage in the development of the facility is the construction of changing rooms, the foundations of which are almost completed.

The Magical Candlelight Walk is a fantastic occasion for all the family, young and old alike. Participants can begin anytime between 5.30p.m. and 6.30p.m.

It's only a matter of following the candle-lit path through the grounds of the famous estate which is neither difficult nor too long.

It is also suitable for those pushing younger children in buggies. Once again participants are encouraged to bring along an old-style lantern to add more to the sense of occasion.

Entertainment will be provided by the Parnell Pipe Band and refreshments will also be available. The cost is €15 per car or €5 per individual walker.

So come along and enjoy a magical candlelight walk in Avondale, weather permitting of course.
