Carrick Cares Day nominated for a 2018 Outsiders Award
The nomination is under the category “Waterways Champion” which is sponsored by Waterways Ireland.
This event was the brainchild of Linda Garland and Thomas Meegan, and it began with only a few young guests about nine years ago and has blossomed into a much anticipated annual event by our guests of all ages. The event focuses on introducing and encouraging our guests to enjoy our waterways either from on land or on the water. In recent years Lough Key has been the venue, where activities have included fishing, trips on boats, walks through the Tree-top Walk, music and singing. All this energy requires feeding and the Carrick Branch BBQ’s provide a constant supply.
The event would not be the success it has been without the large number of volunteers from within the I.W.A.I ranks, along with support provided by both Lough Key and Waterways Ireland.
Linda and Tom will be attending the award ceremony on the 30th January next, and we will have everything crossed that they take home the award.
