What a great day we had! Despite a heavy early morning shower of rain, the day brightened up in every sense of the word, with plenty of sunshine, fun, food, chat, and revelry. As our Photo Gallery of the day will testify.

The Association would like to extend a big thanks to Newbridge Scouts for their wonderful help on the day, and Coillte for the use of the beautiful Donadea Forest Park. But most of all we would like to thank all those who came on the day, children, teens, parents, grandparents, friends and trojan helpers, all who helped make it such a great success. Thanks a mill!

A wonderful Family Day has been had at Causey Farm near Athboy, Co. Meath. With some 27 families present in blissful sunshine, the highlight had to be the bog jumping. The kids had such fun! And I did see some parents daring to take that leap, so as not to be outdone by their children! This video is made available thanks to Dallan O’Reilly. Now you will know what ‘Bog Jumping’ is all about! Photos will follow soon, watch this space!

Thank you to all who came, we expect that there were many tired children on Saturday night! And even more tired adults! And thank you too to the Zoo staff and to the army for hosting and feeding us in McKee Barracks. This is the third year that the army have been involved with out Family Day, and they have been great!

What a wonderful day in Lullymore Heritage & Discovery Park! Such a beautiful place! So much to see and do, and plenty of reasons to come back another day. And such a beautiful day weatherwise.
In the midst of the Bog of Allen, Lullymore is a treasure that gave great joy to the 80 children and 63 adults that attended our fourth annual family day. Families started arriving from 10.30am, from Dublin, Galway, Waterford, Monaghan, Kildare, to name just a few of the represented counties.
