“We may not be on the Mall in Castlebar this year but virtually we will be celebrating together. Participants are coming from all over the world including UK, France, Dubai, US, Australia, New Zealand and all over the country from Cork to Donegal and Dublin to Mayo” commented this years event co-ordinator Janette Slattery.

Random prizes which will include vouchers etc will be selected by the committee post event and will be advertised on all media channels.
