Harvest Fair Parade
A big thank you to all who helped in any way in making our parade a success last weekend. Special thanks to all the bands who attended and also the “thriller for Haiti” group from Falcarragh who entertained the large crowd. Our local schools also participated and added great colour to the parade. We would also like to thank Pat Ryan from the Cope in Dungloe and Claire and Paula from the Melting Pot Festival in Ardara.
