Now it’s Donegal’s turn to give a little bit back and help the dedicated staff of RMD continue their wonderful work.This Saturday the kind and generous Gerard and Margaret of Lurgybrack Farm, Letterkenny have turned over their wonderful premises to facilitate the first Ronald Mc Donald family fun day. The day kicks off at 1pm and runs to 5pm with a FUN DAY FOR ALL THE FAMILY GUARANTEED.Not only will the farm be fully up and running but many more special attractions will be added for this wonderful event, they include some of your favorite Disney characters courtesy of Paddy Kelly of Donegal Entertainments Management, roaming around the farm with the odd (as in more than one!) Donegal footballer, helping to milk the cows and take a few selfies.For those of you who want to sit and enjoy the fresh air, there will be face painting and music all day provided by the one and only DJ Brian McDaid. Should you feel a bit hungry after all the fresh air and exercise (only a little bit of exercise), food will be available courtesy of “The Kitchen” who will be cooking up a storm on their BBQ. This can all be topped off with a dollop of Ice Cream supplied by Rockets.In between all this fun, madness and mayhem there will be a short walk (Part of the terms and conditions, Sorry!) which will commence at 2pm, followed very quickly by more fun and mayhem.There will also be a raffle running throughout the day with some amazing prices on offer, they include:2 tickets for Daniel O Donnell (formally singer, now dancer!) in Killarney including a meet and greet.Donegal Airport have graciously supplied 2 tickets to Dublin open for the next 6 months A 2012 signed Donegal JerseyA ½ ton of CoalPlus many many more wonderful prizes.So come one, come all, everyone is welcome for what promises to be a great family day out. As it is Donegal, sun, rain, hail and snow can all be expected however with the fantastic indoor areas as well as outdoor areas available at Lurgybrack farm, there will be more than enough to do to keep everyone entertained.See you all there….DONEGAL SET TO ‘GO LARGE’ FOR RONALD McDONALD FUN DAY! was last modified: September 10th, 2015 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)Tags:donegalletterkennyLurgybrack FarmRonald McDOnald Fun Daylast_img
