Rathgarogue Parents Association and Rathgarogue Community Development committee have joined forces to host Rathgarogue's first field day in over 35 years this month.

The field day takes place on Sunday, June 9, from 2 p.m. till 5 p.m. and the proceeds from the event will be divided between the proposed future development of an all-weather pitch at the school and a new community hall in Rathgarogue.

There will be something for all the family at the field day which has been months in the planning.

People will be able to catch up with friends and neighbours and revive an old tradition many of their parents and grandparents would have enjoyed.

There will be lots of stalls and activities for young and old to enjoy including a cake stall, bottle stall, wheel of fortune, duck races, bric a brac, hanging tough, karting/tractor track, quad rides, face painting, bouncy castles, novelty athletics including `partner carrying race', to name but a few. A `tug of war' competition will be judged by local strongman, Paul Roberts. Teams of four, including at least one woman, are welcome on the day to register for 20 for the competition.

The organisers would appreciate any donations, large or small, for the bric a brac, bottle stalls and raffle. These can be dropped off at Scoil Naomh Aine, Rathgarogue during school hours.

One of the organisers, Jean Maddock said: `We look forward to everyone joining us on the June 9, from 2 p.m. till 5 p.m. for what will be a great community and family day out.'
