Carrick Cares Day was a huge success last Saturday despite the threatening weather. All our guests and volunteers had a wonderful day. This was down to the trojan work of Catherine Cashman in particular and her Committee, along with the volunteers who gave of their time. A big thank you also to Waterways Ireland, Civil Defence, Lough Key Forest Park, Irish Fisheries, and Bodo Funke (Angling Services Ireland).
The day started with a rainbow, bringing a promise of better weather than had been forecast, and it delivered with only one our two short passing showers during the day. The wind also relented allowing the Wheely Boats to get out also with wheelchairs on board.
Fish were caught and returned, boat trips taken, games played, food consumed to keep energy levels up, music, and dancing, friendships renewed and prizes won.
The day ended with many of the volunteers settling in for some well desrved craic on the jetties as the night fell under a clear night sky. Who’s ready for Carrick Cares Day 2020?
