The 4 Districts Family Fun Day took place recently in Rathcoole village, it was the sixth annual day with a fantastic attendance.
Cllr Emer Higgins commented; “This year we celebrated the 6th 4 Districts Fun Day for families in Newcastle, Rathcoole, Saggart and Brittas. It was the biggest and best event yet! A huge thank you to everyone who came down to support the day, it was great to see so many families (and their dogs!) there having fun in the sun.

“The event is volunteer-based, led by Neville Graver, Christy McDonnell, Tricia O’Halloran and our small committee which includes Angela Breslin and Treasa Kelly who run the dog show. We had everything from market stalls and music to inflatables and superhero’s, a reptile zoo and pet farm, a choo-choo train and toddlers area. The weather was perfect and it was a fantastic free day out for families in the area.

“The event would not be possible without the collaboration with local businesses, including Happyfeet, sports clubs like Rathcoole Boys FC and Commercials Hurling club, signers like RAMS in Rythm and Affia and services like the Civil Defence,” said Cllr. Emer Higgins, a founding member of the 4 Districts Fun Day committee.
