A good crowd enjoyed the various activities at the 10th Annual Harvest Festival in Doonooney last Sunday.

Youngsters had great fun with the Athletic Club Challenge, the Irish Dancing and the Bouncy Castle. The not-so-young had the opportunity to relive the times gone by, looking at the Vintage Ploughmen (and women!) at work, showing their skills to the rest of us.

Later in the afternoon, the sight and sound of the Steam Engine doing the Thrashing was very popular with many. The various stalls and catering marquee were also busy. See this weeks local press for ploughing results.

The Officers and committee wish to thank everyone that helped in any way to make the day so successful. Sincere thanks to all 71 generous sponsors. MEETING
