After weeks of intensive planning, Araglen Carnival 2017 is under way and last weekend’s programme of events went down a treat with those who turned out to support this annual community celebration. 

A slight mishap to one of the appointed jockeys didn’t take from a competitive donkey derby and as per pervious years, teenagers turned out in droves to support Eugene Aherne’s Tommorow Land Disco.

There was also a very large attendance at the regular fortnightly bingo in the hall.
