Enniskerry Victorian Festival 2013

It’s that time of year again and the fantastic Enniskerry Victorian Field Day Festival is on this Sunday, September 15th. It is a super family day out with loads of fun events happening all day. This year it is in aid of several charities, The Wicklow Hospice Foundation and the local parishes. It is being held on Knocklinn Farm, Ballyman road which is within spitting distance of Bray and the M11. There’s loads of parking, children go free and adults are only €5 each all of which goes to the charities already mentioned. Have you ever tried sheaf pitching?? I have, it’s great fun but not for the faint hearted. You can really feel those tummy muscles getting to work!! There is also loads of kids games (which every adult wants to try), tug-a-war, archery, falconry, artisan food market, vintage cars and tractors, horse-shoie pitching, pony rides….. If you get to do or see half of it you’ll sleep well that night! Visit their website http://enniskerryfestival.ie/about-victorian-field-day/for all the information.

Rag Man’s Ball

In addition to the Field Day, there is also a ‘Rag Man’s Ball’ being held on Friday night. We are donating half a Lleyn lamb, freezer ready, valued at €90 to the auction! We also have are giving 5% of the price of every lamb (whole/half) that is ordered at the Ball to the charities nominated this year. Order forms can be obtained from Hannah on the night.
