THE RATHMULLAN HARVEST FESTIVAL REALLY IS CHILD’S PLAY!

first_imgThe 2010 feast which was a huge success!The Rathmullan Harvest Feast is set to return on Sunday, October 5th and it really is all a bit of child’s play but for a wonderful cause.Having successfully taken place in 2010, efforts were put in place to revive the feast with this year’s proceeds supporting the development of an Accessible and Inclusive play area in the lovely seaside village.The feast comes in the form of a communal lunch and dinner in a vintage marquee on the site of the pier hotel on Sunday October 5th. The wonderful Rathmullan playground.This year’s bountiful menu includes oysters, Swilly fishcakes, Pat Patton’s shoulder of lamb and much more. Refreshments will be on hand to quench any resulting thirst. Each meal can be complemented by a pint of Kinnegar Beer or a bottle of wine – with half the proceeds of beer sales and €7.50 per bottle of wine being donated towards the play area.The net result of these contributions will be the provision of an Accessible and Inclusive extension to the existing play area in Rathmullan. This will ensure that all children, local or visiting, can have the opportunity to play together as children should.An inclusive play area is one which provides the means for all children to have the opportunity to play, through the provision of appropriate space and equipment to cater for whatever needs they may have. The ability to play is essential to children’s development, and the contributions made by those attending the feast will see that no child is denied this right.To add to the occasion a free program of events has been put in place to follow lunch or precede dinner including Sailing, Kayaking and Paddle Boarding Taster Sessions, Boat Trips on the Enterprise, Walking tours with Deirdre Friel, Tours of Kinnegar Brewing, visits to the Walled Garden at Rathmullan House, as well as music in the pubs. While these activities are free, any contributions towards the play area would be welcomed. The scene is set for some guilt free indulgence with tickets available for a lunch or dinner sitting at €25, with €15 of this going towards the play area. Tickets can be purchased in Rathmullan at the White Harte Pub, Belles Kitchen and Rathmullan House or by calling 074 915 8188. Further details of the feast and the day’s activities can be found via Rathmullan Information’s facebook page.The Rathmullan Harvest Feast is a joint initiative of the White Harte Pub, Belles Kitchen, Salt-n-Batter, Rathmullan House, Kinnegar Brewing, and the Taproom, organised with the generous support of Scarpello & Co, Pat Patton, Alfie’s, JGK Construction, and the Garvin O’Doherty Group. THE RATHMULLAN HARVEST FESTIVAL REALLY IS CHILD’S PLAY! was last modified: September 27th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
