Ballacolla

New Years Day

New Years Day

An estimated 300 participants turned out for the annual Ballacolla New Years Day walk, pony and vintage/high nelly display making it a hugely enjoyable and successfull day. A special word of thanks to all the stewards who ensured the safe running of the event. Thanks are also extended to the kitchen help at St Patricks hall who made sure all were full and had plenty. To David Lalor and his family for allowing access to their land and for providing the now annual Christmas cheer, a big thanks. Thanks is also due to both national schools for distributing sponsorship cards and encouraging their return where they entered the draw drum. The winners of the Christmas vouchers were the Hawks family from Aghaboe for Clough NS and the Duggan family from Ballygague for Ballacolla NS. Proceeds from the day will aid the senior citzens and national schools fund.
