Milking a cow or hooking a duck - all the fun of the fair was there to be had at St John the Baptist Girls School Field Day.

Popular attractions were the bouncy castles and the hurling challenge which kept Joe O’Dwyer busy all afternoon. Fr Jimmy O’Donnell showed us his prowess with a golf club (watch our Rory McIlroy). The Cashel Scouts demonstrated their woodcraft and they also donated their huge tent for the day, which was kitted out as a very stylish créche. The Cashel Brass Band opened the field day followed by Sinead Moloney and Heather Laffey who performed in the Heritage Trust marquee. There were side stalls, a food fair, sack races, hobby horse and fish racing and a junior tug of war. Principal Mary Andrews thanked everyone for attending and announced the day raised at least €5,000 for the School Building Fund.
