Even a quiet corner if anyone needs a rest from the festivities!

KIDS ACTIVITIES & GAMES

Kids fun races (3pm) & Kids GAA 
Always great fun, sign your kids up for the egg & spoon, game of football or toddler dash.

It's an inflatable soccer dartboard that you kick the ball at and try to get a bulls-eye.

Face-painting
Always a hit with the kids.

Stilt Divas
The most Spectacular Stilt Walkers in the Stilt World!

A man that needs no introduction, he introduced Christianity to Ireland and banished the snakes and is probably responsible for more hangovers that anyone else in history!
