Save Leitrim information day and fundraiser

Make your way to Drumshanbo this Saturday for Save Leitrim's information day and fundraising event at Mount Allen Eco Farm.

The event will run from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, August 3 and includes cakes, a farm walk, a magic trail, musical games, art and events to entertain the entire family.

There will be a Save Leitrim information and Q&A stall on the day so you can find out more about the group.

Events start at 11am with a wild flower drawing and printing workshop with Kate Murtagh Sheridan. This is aimed at all ages.
This will be followed at 12 noon by a farm walk with Tommy Earley and Wayne Frankham.

At 1pm enjoy a picnic by the lake, bring your own food or order a farm made picnic by noon.

At 2pm there will be musical games with Devon MacGillivray suitable for ages 7 through to 107 - so no excuses not to join in!
