Last Sunday week, the 28th of September was without question an amazing day for both young and old, in our immediate and surrounding communities. Local people along with their families and friends from further afield joined the Lisryan & District Community Development group in the first of our annual fundraising walks/run. It was both heart-warming and uplifting to see such a massive turnout to this event. Our prayers were answered with regards to the weather; God was shining his light and warmth down on us all via the sunshine. Our village looked fantastic and the atmosphere was electric, many people commented on how wonderful the morning was. Afterwards Fr. Joe McGrath presented the many prizes to the participants and dished out the sweets to our younger competitors. The morning ended with a spectacular spread of refreshments in the Crossroads Inn where the buzz of chatting and laughter was music to ones ears. Thank you very much to anyone who played a part in making this event such a success and we look forward to seeing you all and more, same time same place next year. Your support showed our future generation you care and they will follow.
