Photographs of the Beara Cheval, in memory of John O Driscoll & in aid of Scoil an Chroí Ró Naofa,

On Sunday last the Beara Cheval was held in Castletownbere. It was held in memory of John O Driscoll, who passed away earlier this year. John had organised the cheval in previous years and a minute silence was held in his memory before the cheval left Dunboy! The Cheval doubles as a fundraiser for Scoil an Chroí Ro Naofa who are raising money for their astro.

A large crowd gathered both to participate and watch some majestic horses parade through the town.

They proceed up the Mill Road and back to Dunboy where they were treated to Soup, Sandwiches and lovely baking all donated from the school community. The most beautiful backdrop to a beautiful day. The horses proceeded back to Castletownbere where the prize giving took place in the Wheel House Bar.

A great day out was had by all and the organisers and An Scoil an Chroí Ró Naofa would like to thank everyone who contributed, stewarded or helped in anyway.

Here are some photographs from a great day out.
