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!

The Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Ireland, in conjunction with the Newbridge Scouts, are delighted to announce that its seventh family fun day will be held on Saturday, 18th June. This year we are planning to spend the day at Donadea Forest Park, a little known jewel in County Kildare. It is located 8 kilometers south of Kilcock on the R407 to Naas and is also accessible via the R407 about 13 kilometers north of Naas on the Kilcock Road.
The day will start at 10am with registration. At 10:30 we will break up into groups for age appropriate activities – buggy walk around the lake for under 6’s, venture challenge for teenagers+, orienteering for ages 6 to 12 and grown-ups, and a sedentary sit down at base camp for anybody else!
We will have a picnic (in the marquee if needs be) around 12:30. Families should bring a light lunch to supplement a barbecue which is being organised. Tea and coffee can be purchased from the Park’s coffee shop, or bring a flask. The Scouts are organising a range of activities for the afternoon. As usual dress for all weathers. We will have our annual raffle too which has proved to be a good success in previous years. Let us know if you can supply a raffle prize.
Please find attached booking form and information for this year’s Family Fun Day. Please complete and post to CLAPAI, c/o 4 Wolverton Glen, Dalkey, County Dublin, or complete a softcopy and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date for replies is Friday, 10th June.
It is an ideal opportunity to meet up, chat and have fun. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Aine Doyle, committee member and Paul Murphy Newbridge Scouts for all their work in organising this year’s event.

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!

Location: Causey Farm, Co. Meath.
The Cleft Lip and Palate Association of Ireland is delighted to announce that its sixth family fun day will be held on Saturday, 19th June. This year we are planning to spend the day at Causey farm, which offers both indoor and outdoor activites. It is located between Trim and Navan, County Meath (see www.causey.ie).
The day will start at 10 a.m. with registration. At 10:30 we will break up into groups and take a tour of the farm. Buggies can get around but be prepared for a bit of rough terrain in places. The highlight of the morning is likely to be our ‘bog jumping’ event. Our teenage and young adult group will lead the way and show us just how much bog they can soak up! Everybody will get an opportunity to try this out, even the grown ups. It is important to bring a change of clothes, a black bag for the wet stuff and some wipes to clear off at least some of the bog before lunch!
After the tour of the farm we will have a picnic (indoor if needed). Families should bring their own food but we will have tea and coffee readily available and a few goodies too! We will have some fun and activities after lunch including our annual raffle, which has proved to be a good success in the last number of years.
As usual there will be plenty of time to chat and mingle throughout the day. Please check here for updates. Regarding costs, there is no charge for attending the event but we are hoping to make the event self financing by runnig the raffle and taking donations on the day. For security reasons we must have a completed booking form if you want to come along – see below. We look forward to seeing you for another great family day, hail or shine!
Please complete the attached booking form and either post hard copy to CLAPAI, c/o 4 Wolverton Glen Dalkey, Co. Dublin, or send soft copy to email@example.com.
Closing date for replies is Wednesday, 16th June. If for any reason you do not get a confirmation of your booking from us, please contact us at 087 131 9803
