Gone Barking Mad will have a fun and educational theme to it and will have attractions to include Dog Agility and Dog Training Demonstrations, Dog Olympics and a Fun Dog Show. There will be face painting, a barrel train ride, refreshments, entertainment and lots more. There will be talks by Irish Guide Dogs and others covering topics such as Best Way to Approach a Dog, Essential First Aid and Essential Dog Care. There will be plenty of stalls to allow dog owners attend to their dog’s every need.
Gone Barking Mad will launch Green Dog Walking to County Cork and in so doing will increase awareness amongst dog owners of their responsibility to clean up after their dog. Cork County Council is supporting this initiative and there will be a lot of publicity closer to the date.
A quick reminder of our Parish Party this Sunday at the Community Centre Castlelyons @ 1pm. Dinner will be served at 1.30pm.
We will have a reception on arrival, followed by full dinner, during the latter part of dinner you will be entertained by Castlelyons Gospel Choir and Jimmy Morrison and gang followed by the one and only Mick Hayes who will keep the party alive with music, song and dance. Hopefully many attending might have a “party piece”. This will be followed by tea and goodies before the evening ends.
This event is by Ticket Only, as we need to know definite numbers for our Chefs and for financial reasons we are charging a Nominal Fee of 5 Euro per person, this secures your seat. Tickets are available from Siun Spillane 086 4021213 or James 086 8237538.
