Harvest Celebration in Ross with a Difference

On Sunday September 4th Ross Union in the Church of Ireland Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross, celebrated Harvest in a different way. Gathering at the Giles’ farm in Derry, Rosscarbery (in glorious sunshine) the Harvest Thanksgiving Service was held in a Marquee. Here are some of the photos:

The Very Rev. Paul Draper (Dean of Lismore) was the preacher and the congregation was an eclectic gathering  of about 200, made up of parishioners, friends and neighbours. After the service there was a splendid tea, entertainment for the children and a display of vintage cars and farm machinery. The celebration moved seamlessly into a birthday celebration for the hostess, Olive, with music and more refreshment.
