Visit to Renville Park & playground in Oranmore
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. It’s the start of a long weekend here and I took the kids and a few of their friends to Renville Park/playground in Oranmore yesterday. As it is the furthest away playground from where we live, we call it the “far away playground”. I was a bit apprehensive to head there with 5 boys (my own kids, two other 12 year old and a neighbour), but as it turns out it was all plain sailing. Pity I didn’t know about the little catering truck in front of the walled garden, I could have had a cup of tea whilst the kids were playing hide and seek 🙂 ( Note to self, bring my purse from the car next time ) Here are a few pictures of our trip.
There is a beautiful view from the parking lot, overlooking the Marina.
The 5 boys on their way!
We stopped off at the fitness equipment, they had great fun on all the equipment. I am hoping they’ll add equipment like that in Coole Park, it would be a nice activity to do.

So it looks like that pre- teens still enjoy playing hide-and-seek!
The day started very wet, but by the time we arrived it was sunny( with some clouds) and apart from a short shower, we couldn’t have picked a better day to go to the “far away play ground”.
Today, Sunday, I ventured to cycle the Monastic Cycle tour,starting from Gort. Come back tomorrow to read my write up. All I can say now, I can barely walk !!!!
(Note many years later – I have done a lot of cycling since I wrote this blogarticle – check out the trails/loops I have mapped so far, the monastic trail is on my list of loops to write up!)
Have a great weekend, wherever you are!
