It was a very enjoyable day out for all the family enhanced by splashes of holi colour powder and free ice cream for all children.

This programme is to provide support to the children and is run by Rainbows Ireland.
All proceeds raised on the day were donated to Rainbows Longford.
A spokesperson for the foundation said, “We would like to help create happy memories for all the children,and we certainly had loads of fun at our Run for Rainbows.”
