Corracrin NS Emy Walk 2017

The Parents' Association of St. Patrick's National School, Corracrin, held their now annual Emy Walk on Sunday May 13th 2017. The weather was sunny and bright which added to the pleasure of walking/running around this beautiful lake and being as close to nature as one can get. The wild birds, the swans, the ducks, the trees and bushes coming into leaf, the water lapping at the shore, the fishing boats moving into position to get into a drift for the fishermen on board, the green fields all around the lake, the smells of the wild herbs and plants and the sun reflecting off the waves as a strong breeze blows down the lake. The children, full of energy, run while the adults stride out and converse with others. A lovely occasion and hopefully some money raised for the school.
