As people prepare that extra special hat for the Galway Races, why not test out the headgear in Moycullen next Sunday and win the cost of entry to the races.
Moycullen will host a garden fête on Sunday next, July 14 in the grounds of An Teaghlach Uilinn Retirement Centre from 1pm to 4pm.
A fun day is planned for all with events including a barbecue, refreshments, pre-loved clothes, craft, plant and bric-a-brac stalls, a dog show with a difference, a pre-teen talent contest, face and portrait painting, optional health checks, and live entertainment in the presence of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. There will even be a serving of strawberries and cream available.
Proceeds from the event, which awards Galway Races tickets to the best floral themed hat, go to Western Alzheimers and the local advocacy group.
