A Taste of Mullingar Blistering Success

Dominic Street was alive last Sunday with what could only be described as a great day for all the family. The sunshine and blistering heat had people out in their droves lapping up good food, good company and much more.

The streets were trawled with young and old and the traders offered something for everybody, from great food to handmade jewellery to reflexology. It was all there. There was no doubt that the sunshine lifted everyone’s sprits. The wet sponge throwing certainly proved popular, both among the adults and children, in the sweltering heat that saw Dominick Street packed full of visitors for the day.

Hotting Things Up

Bubbles the clown and Gerturd the face painter certainly entertained the children for the day by providing free face painting and Balloon modelling. The flash dance had children and their parents lining up the street dancing in unison. Its estimated there was over 200 people dancing in the street, all doing the same moves.

The adults and teens weren’t forgotten about when it came to entertainment. Fire breathers put on an amazing show that left some mouths open in awe.

From dogs to hats to flowers Bubbles the clown did them all

There were two categories for the tug a war, a men’s and a ladies team. Spectators lined the barriers of the taxi rank to cheer on their team. Winner of the men’s team was the Fire Brigade and of the ladies, the team from the Old Stand.
