Cherry Orchard Festival

Congratulations to the Local Community Groups who worked so hard with their sponsors, Dublin City Council, to bring this years Parade and events to a most successful conclusion again this year.
 
Not only was The Health and Wellbeing morning enjoyed by all but the magnificent and colourful parade had to be the most spectacular parade that has ever been seen in Cherry Orchard.
 
Of course Art was not neglected as the Ballyfermot Social Intervention Initiative organized a competition in the Orchard Centre.
 
The Equine Centre also played it's part with Pony rides and Pony club games as did the footballers, with the final of the Futsol tournament and the Gardai and Dublin Fire Brigade personal joined in the fun with the locals in another football match.
 
The kids had their own Pyjama Disco in the Orchard Centre and the Festival came to an end with a Family Fun Day.
