All roads lead to Carnew on Sunday, August 3, when a Family Fun Day will be held in the Sportsfield, starting at 2pm.

Organised by Carnew Emmets camogie and ladies football clubs, the Fun Day will be a riot of fun challenges from a talent competition for children to target practice with footballs and sliotars, the much-loved duck race, win-a-goldfish and more. Younger children will be able to guess how many sweets are in a jar and do a lollipop lucky dip before getting their faces painted. Book stalls, cake stalls and a barbecue will ensure the adults are kept entertained.

Mums and dads will not be left on the sideline as they get a chance to line up against their daughters in Under 8 and Under 10 matches. The Under 12 girls will be challenging the U10 boys and the U14 girls will be taking on the U12 boys team.

In addition, you’ll get to see real live fairies on the day – as five men (fairies) from the area are being dropped 15 miles from Carnew at 1.30 without cash or mobile phones. GAA sponsorship cards to guess the first, second and third fairy to make it back to the Fun Day are available at €2 a line, with cash prizes on offer.

It promises to be a great day – see you in Carnew on August 3 from 2pm onwards for an afternoon of fun and craic.
