Date for your Diary.

The Annaduff Family fun day takes place on Sunday August 12th and is entering it’s 5th year It is now an established date in the local diary. The Committee have been busy putting this year’s events together and we are sure that you will not be disappointed. As usual over half of the day’s proceeds are donated to a nominated charity and this year the chosen Charity is Pieta House.We are extremely grateful to the community of Annaduff and from  far and beyond who support this event Annually and have helped to make it so successful. This year we have all the usual attractions, ie the biggest underage football blitz in Leitrim, kid’s games, competitions , entertainment demonstration stands , book sales, cake sales, hot food ,ice cream, and much much more.

Each year the committee have built in a central theme and this year we will focus on farm safety and increasing awareness of same. As the majority of our patrons young and old are from farming backgrounds and have access  to, or interact with farms we feel that the fun day is an ideal platform to remind and educate all on the dangers that farms present in a discreet but impacting manner. The farm safety feature will take the form of numerous live presentations and demonstrations, conducted by guest speakers in a safe and controlled environment.

Speakers on the day include Peter Goherry a Nationally recognised authority on Health and safety.A Native of Eyre Court Co. Galway, Peter was involved construction and farming until October 2009 , when a farm accident resulted in the loss of one leg and badly damaging the other, plus related injuries. Peter has turned this experience into a positive attitude and since his recovery ,he tells of his personal story and advises best practise on farms. He has appeared n T.V. shows and has featured at the Ploughing championship. This talk and demonstration are inspiring and not to be missed.

Also attending is Alma Jordan-Agri kids from Co. Kildare. In 2014 Alma set up her own business , Agri Kids to teach children about farm safety. Her concept is to empower children to absorb the dangers around them in a firm and real manner.She does this by interactive educational presentations, reading, colouring etc., all of which are designed to change safety attitudes at a young age and build for safer futures on farms. Alma will be situated in the Community Centre on the day and will work with various groups of Primary school children. In conjuction with her presentation Annaduff National School children have been busy drawing farm safety posters and their entries will be displayed in the Centre and judged by Alma on the day.

We will be looking for volunteers for that day please, Call Niall at 087 9852113 or any committee member.
