ALL roads led to Roundwood over the weekend as the picturesque village welcomed the return of the annual community festival.

Proceedings got underway on Thursday, with a Céilí held in Roundwood Parish Hall, but things really got going over the weekend with a strong programme of different activities.

A well-attended bingo extravaganza took place on Saturday in An Tochar GAA Club, while Sunday started with a vintage vehicle parade, accompanied by a IUNVA colour party.

A tightly contested wheelbarrow race saw Roundwood Athletic Club come out on top as they just beat Roundwood Badminton Club to finish first over the line.

Also taking part were Avonmore Game Club and Roundwood AFC.

Next Level Gaming Vans also arrived on site featuring Playstation 4s, Xbox1s, switches and more for both young and old to enjoy.

The always popular scarecrow competition featured some very topical entries, including one design which looked eerily like Kim Kardashian. The festival fun day featured activities for the whole family, including a vintage car and tractor display, dog show, kid's Corner, bottle fishing, face painting and a guess the weight of the lamb competition.
