The Drishane Castle Garden Fete was a traditional bi annual established by the Sisters of the Infant Jesus during their time in Drishane Convent 1909 – 1992. It was staged as a fund raiser for the Missions.
It was always an event held close to people’s hearts, attracting crowds of supporters from near and far. Sadly the tradition died when the Sisters’ time in Drishane came to an end, the last one was staged in May 1990 exactly 20 years ago.
2010 sees the revival of the Garden Fete on Sunday May 30th 1pm – 6pm. It promises to be a day of great festivity and celebration. It co incidentally corresponds with the Polish Celebration of “Children’s Day” further ensuring that it will be a fun filled day for all members of the family. The Committee is delighted to offer an afternoon of quality entertainment for all members of the family while also helping Baby Jacob in his lifetime challenge of blindness.

Our outdoor pursuits on Sunday were many and varied,with Ballydaly staging their annual Sports and Leisure Day, at their local School Grounds, a music extravaganza at Star Trax recording Studio in Knocknagree and a fun day for all ages in our Town Park organised by the local Clubs. People turned out with children, babies in prams, dogs on leads in brilliant sunshine to see dads and granddads, moms and grandmothers tog off for a real fun game of football. Which was followed by matches for a variety of age groups. The pipe band opened the show. The Celts provided music al fresco, and Jerry Pat filled the air with the tempting aroma of roasting burgers and snacks. There was no fee at the gate, and a great time was had by all.
