Visitors from Belarus enjoy great day out

CHILDREN visiting Wexford from Belarus were treated recently to a fun day at Rag Tree Equine Assisted Learning Centre, Ballinamona, Kilmuckridge.

Denis O'Connor and Shelly Berry, who run the centre, laid on games, a bouncy castle, t-shirt painting, food, wet sponge throwing, horseshoes and much more in glorious sunshine.

Denis' mother Catherine, and Mary Quinn from Camolin founded Chernobyl Orphanages Project Fund in 2006, and this year they brought over 17 children and an interpreter to stay with families in Kilmuckridge, Camolin and Enniscorthy for a month. They also run a charity shop on Wafer Street in Enniscorthy.

The children and their host families thoroughly enjoyed the day, and a big thank you was sent to Denis and Shelly for all their work.

Thanks also went to iBounce for the bouncy castles; Wilton Gardens, Enniscorthy; Greenhills Fruit Farm; Londis and Centra in Kilmuckridge; Martins of Tomnalossett; and the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy, for looking after the interpreter and treating the children; and the Waterfront pool in Enniscorthy; and Pirates Cove, Courtown.
