Children’s events

The committee of Féile Chamlocha has drawn up a programme of events attempting to cater for all ages and tastes. Children’s events will be free of charge as usual and local mountaineer Banjo Bannon will tutor children and adults in the skills of abseiling and kayaking. These particular events are often oversubscribed and the committee urges anyone who would like to join in the fun to contact a committee member as soon as possible.
