Harvest Festival

The 19th annual Lough Rynn Harvest Festival and Vintage Day took place in the grounds of Lough Rynn Castle on Sunday last and as usual the Lord looked down on us and gave us a fine day. Trade stands and exhibitors from all over the country were there and three bands provided wonderful music to entertain the large crowd. Overall it was a great day for young and old.
