A good crowd from TKA numbering 43 adults and 12 children enjoyed the Diocesan Fun Day on Clare Island on 28th May.
We went to across on the 11.00am ferry from Roonagh Quay under clear blue skies. Once on the island we enjoyed a range of activities.
Some people chose to walk or cycle round the island and many and varied distances were covered that way! Some chose to go by minibus to see the lighthouse and to visit a weaver’s loom.
We enjoyed our picnic lunches back at the community centre and then went by minibus to the old abbey, which has 12th century wall paintings still visible and we enjoyed a talk about the Abbey and the Island by Peter Gill.
Following Peter’s talk we had a short service of worship in the church next door to the Abbey before being bused back to the community centre to collect our belongings for the return journey to Roonagh.
An enjoyable day was blessed with outstanding weather, and Clare Island offered such a beautiful setting for our fun day!
