AFTER weeks of preparation by a very diligent working committee, Chairperson of the Daingean Homecoming Festival committee, Joe Lynch, was delighted to shout ‘and they’re off!’ to a packed Seery’s Bar and Lounge on Sunday last.
A champagne reception got punters into the festive mood as they studied the form. All racers were sponsored and the committee thank each and everyone who gave so generously.
The tote, eagerly manned by Valerie, Claire, Tracey and Veronica, were busy all night.
With committee members getting into costume on the day, a very dull bank holiday weekend was definitely brighter in Daingean!
All monies raised will go towards the Homecoming Festival event which will take place on the August bank holiday weekend.
As this is the 25th anniversary if the festival, this is going to be one to remember.
