There was a constant queue with Thomas from “Adlum Woodturning” and Thomas told us there are some very talented wood workers in Roscrea! Munster band “A Minute to Midnight” set off the day with a bang while Ger’s mobile farm had a whole range of animals from little chicks to rabbits, ponies, and goats! Pizza Belle, Moody Cow & Tegula foods kept us going with tasty treats as well as teas & delicious cakes from Quigley’s and Aileen’s bakery. Thanks to all for making the Inaugural Roscrea Summerfest a great success.
