16th August 2007, Pony and Trap Drive

The Pony and Trap Drive was an enormous success. Dressed in peasant style clothing as seen on The Irish R.M. television series, the fleet of five travelled from The Thatch Pub, Grannagh to Jack Meades. The participants and spectators managed to dodge the showers on the day and people turned out along the route to view the spectacular scene and support the drive. The most enjoyable and successful day finished off with a traditional Irish music session at The Thatch Pub, Grannagh.

The total amount raised on the Pony and Trap Drive was €7,200.

Sincere thanks to the drivers, collectors, supporters and Mary Corcoran who raised a substantial amount of the total money collected in sponsorship.
