Brilliant Afternoon

There was great atmosphere at Skeheenarinky’s Flower and Vegetable Show last Sunday. A brilliant display of vegetables and flower arrangements, photographs, paintings, drawings, sweets and treats, and handicrafts testified to the fine local talent in and around Skeheenarinky. With bubble making, weaving, and face painting, there was plenty of activity for the children, not to mention the number of competitions children entered themselves. The day concluded with a raffle and left many of our neighbours home with lovely prizes. Thank you to the organizers and volunteers who provided such a positive community event.
