Family Festival in Darndale Park – 2015

Listen to MARK FINNEGAN talking to some of the participants at the 2015 Darndale Arts Festival.
THE second family fun day to take place in Darndale Park has been hailed a “great success”.

Some 1,000 people attended the park for a day of arts and crafts, free food and even a Harry Potter bouncy castle.

Children were also invited to decorate their own homemade fairy doors in the Enchanted Workshop.
The doors were made locally and children were then able to take home with them.
A fishing competition, a sports day and a gallows with a wet sponge throwing booth were all set up in the park.
Funding for the day was sourced from Dublin City Council grants and a number of other community organisations.
Darndale FC also opened their doors to offer parents a chance to grab a cup of tea and relax.
