Following the Kennedy trail
THE senior citizens of Caim were on the trail of the Kennedys as they filled a coach and hit the road for the annual parish outing.
A turnout of 52 gathered to head for New Ross after 10 a.m. Mass was celebrated at the church of St. John the Baptist.
First stop was the Kennedy homestead at Dunganstown followed by a look around the Dunbrody famine ship moored at the quay in New Ross.
Then everyone boarded 'The Galley' for a cruise up the Barrow and Nore amid scenery that looked spectacular in the August sunshine.
Commentary was provided by Mark Minahan as the boat followed a course that took everyone close to St. Mullins.
There was a warm reception for the tea and scones served by the crew, though the Caim crew had to leave room for their dinner.
The main meal was taken in the Brandon House hotel and organiser Toss Kavanagh had everyone back to base before midnight.
