Children's Day this Sunday

Children's Day has been a successful annual event in Galway since 2002. This year's activities include the Amani acrobats, Galway City and County Childcare Committee's mobile playbus, face painters, the Agri-Aware mobile farm and the fire engine.

The Galway County Mobile Library will feature story-telling circles with special guest Megan Ross from South Africa. Among the live acts featured this year are Wanda, Colin Devaney and his Band, Bobo, DJ Oisín and DJs Erin and Shannon. There will be street theatre from Blue Teapot Theatre Company and anarchic Gombeens Theatre Troupe. Other activities include rugby, basketball, soccer and football.

HSE West, Galway City Council, City of Galway VEC and the Galway City & County Childcare Committee have come together to organise Children's Day on Sunday 1 July in Eyre Square, Galway from 2pm to 4pm.

As a special contribution to Children's Day in Galway, Bus Éireann is providing free bus travel for children within the city limits between 1.30pm and 4.30pm. All activities and entertainment are provided free of charge.
