DESPITE the wet and windy conditions, over 1,000 people attended Unlock the Adventure at Lough Boora Parklands on Sunday for the culmination of the Rehab Waterways Adventure in association with Bord na Móna.

Crowds of children were mesmerized by the special performances by Bosco and friends, along with the Great Dragonfly Hunt, which was created especially for the day.

The children’s art competition proved particularly popular and the judges had a very tough time selecting the winners, due to the quantity of entries.

There were three categories, four and under which was won by Conor McGough (4) from Lumcloon National School, the winner of the category from five was seven was Adam O’Carroll (7) from Clonmacnois National School and the eight plus winner was 9 year old Becky Bryant from St Colman’s National School in Mucklagh.

On the day, visitors to Unlock the Adventure at Lough Boora also had a chance to see the heritage boat, the Nieuwe Zorgen, which was docked in Pollough as a part of a voyage around the inland waterways of Ireland.
