A wonderful day was had by all at Roscrea Summerfest on Sunday
The stall holders were fantastic and the children were highly entertained with outrageous acts from Professor Plunger, Mary Arrigan's story telling, face painting and the Bonny Baby competition.

Munster band A Minute to Midnight set off the day with a bang and they were so popular they had a second gig in Limerick last night! Ger's mobile farm had a whole range of animals from little chicks that would fit in the palm of your hand to rabbits, ponies, goats and I think he may even have had a tiger!
Pizza Belle, Moody Cow & Tegula foods kept us going with tasty treats as well as a whole range of coffees, teas & delicious cakes from Quigley's and Aileen's bakery.
The Exploration Dome - the largest mobile planeterium in the country saw over 300 people and said the day was a complete success, a fantastic day and we had a great time.
