We had a super day yesterday at the Tyrellstown Family Day.
Nicola, Sarah, Niamh, Ian and Andrew headed off with the Draiocht Marquee and lots of red cushions and art materials, and set up a Family Day of Kite Making and Art from 3-6pm.
We had tons of kids through our tent enjoying the make-and-do.
Betelnut Café kindly gave us tea and coffee vouchers to give out to people, and Draiocht proudly sponsored the first prizes of the Tyrellstown Art Competition.
On possibly the windiest day in August, our Marquee faired quite well and thanks so much to all the committee for helping us secure our pegs and stay firmly on the ground!

‘The Story of the Little Old Man’ is the latest show from Galway based children’s theatre company Branar. It tells the delicate tale of friendship between a lonely old man and a stray dog that no one wanted, with the help of enchanting puppets (made by Suse Reibisch) and live music (by Morgan Cooke). This heart-warming story is told with grace and amazing attention to detail and can be understood in any language. Adapted for stage by Marc Mac Lochlainn. Artistic advisor Bjarne Sandborg, Teater Refleksion, Denmark.
