On Sunday the 26th of August, Templemore Lions Club had its annual Family Fun day in the Town Park officially opened by the Thomas McDonagh pipe band.

Thanks to the good weather, a large crowd came out to enjoy the many activities that were on offer, events like these can only occur through the hard work off the Lions Club members and our army of volunteers who gave freely of their time and resources all day Saturday and Sunday, your efforts were sincerely appreciated by all. A huge draw on the day was the Fastest Sliotar competition, for which all age groups were eligible, and the overall winner was Eoin Franks, who can now claim to be the fastest sliotar in Tipperary, with a speed of 144 Kph, just pipping county senior hurler Noel McGrath who turned up and signed many autographs to the delight of all present, All star hurler Eamonn Corcoran also attended and came third. Another huge draw were the horse and carriage rides around the lake. Unfortunately, due to circumstances well beyond our control, we were unable to have the boat rides on the lake this year, but they will return next year, along with some new and exciting activities. The day was capped off with a tug of war competition and kids pull. It is brilliant to be able to showcase the town and it’s fabulous park, and bring people together, whilst at the same time having fun, and raising monies for charities, such as The Laura Lynn House, Jack and Jill Foundation, Heart Foundation and local youth causes and charities. Thanks to all who attended and contributed, and we will see you next year on Sunday August 25th, weather permitting. Templemore Lions Club has just launched a FaceBook page so all photos of Fun day and future events will be upload so please “Like Us”.
