On 16th September we attended the Fun day in Glengarriff providing a Paint Ball Arcade as per last year.

The rain held off until mid afternoon, so there were plenty of people to come and try their luck.

As last year the event was dominated by Saoirsa McCarthy, joined by her sister who was as good a shot as her.

We collected nearly €250 Euro for Glangarriff Community.
