Big Weekend planned in Ballyouskill – October 29th and 30th 2016 🗓
BALLYOUSKILL VINTAGE FESTIVAL: Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th October – Preserving our heritage, Ballyouskill Style! Its Mardi Gras time in scenic Ballyouskill village next weekend. The big weekend kicks off on Saturday night in the Wheel Inn at 9pm with a Cabaret during which an Auction will be held. Everything from a needle to a haystack will go under the hammer. Then Sunday sees a double delight with a Tractor Run at 11am followed at 1pm by a Horse & Mill Threshing and Vintage Display. Ballyouskill is certainly doing its bit to preserve our heritage and the organisers hope to build on the momentum of last year when over 100 tractors converged on the village and hundreds enjoyed the threshing. The tractor route is one of the best kept secrets but the white smoke will reveal all on Sunday morning. Every little helps a lot and this year the proceeds of Ballyouskill Vintage Festival will benefit:
• The O’Gorman Home, Ballyragget.
• Motor Neurone Disease.
• Ballyouskill Community Hall.
• Brain Unit Beaumont Hospital, Dublin.
Please come along and support – it promises to be a great weekend!
