Stuck for something to do this weekend?

Now that all the schools are on official holidays it feels like the summer has finally begun. Hopefully the sun will feel the same and come out! This weekend is one of the busiest local weekends and here at Fermoy Print and Design we have spent the week helping loads of community groups get ready for their celebrations. By the looks of it there is no need to go anywhere special this weekend, there is loads on!

One of the main attractions is the All Ireland Ferguson Heritage Vintage Rally in Castletownroche. Billy Sheehan and his crew have been working hard to put together a day to remember for anyone with an interest in farming or vintage machinery and cars. It promises to be a wonderful sight and we were proud to work with the organisers to produce the programme for this weekend. Our in-house designer Kieran Dwane designed the beautiful programme here. There will be over 300 entrants to the different competition and events will kick off at 1.30pm on Sunday (July 3, 2011) with Gerorge McAleer, the national Ferguson Heritage Co-ordinator.


The Fermoy Flower Club and the St Patrick’s Church in Fermoy are hosting A Festival of Flowers as part of the celebrations marking the Bi-Centenary of the church. The event is being launched tonight in the church and the festival will open at 11am on Saturday morning (July 2) and again on Sunday (July 3) at 1pm at the church. Fr Aduin Casey is the administrator of Fermoy Parish and worked with us this week to produce a beautiful Souvenir Programme. The cover was designed by Gerry Condon. Flower & Garden Clubs from various parts of the country are coming to display their goods and really should be a lovely event.


Fermoy Rowing Club are hosting their annual Regatta this weekend. It’s a wonderful event and always attracts hundreds of people to the town of Fermoy. In his address at the launch earlier two weeks ago, chairman Cllr John Murphy said this years Regatta will attract over 1,000 competitors and supporters and there will be 211 races every 3 minutes from 8am on Sunday morning! The Fermoy Business Action group are hosting a River Festival in conjunction with the regatta to further entertain the visitors and spectators. The Blackwater River may have cost Fermoy a penny or two over the years but it is a wonderful (and very beautiful) resource and this weekend, the Regatta will help show off the wonderful asset it truly is to the town. All week we’ve been working with the Rowing Club to produce this week’s programme. This cover was deigned by Kieran Dwane.


So in all it’s been a very busy week! Now that it’s Friday evening we’re off to enjoy the weekend and try and get to as many events as we can. Best wishes to all the different committees involved. We hope the sun shines and everyone else spends the weekend in the North Cork area!
