Rathcoole Row on Row closing ceremony

Folks on behalf of RATH. Community Group/Dalaradia can we say a huge thank you to everyone who attended the closing of Rathcoole Row on Row today.

One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can achieve anything.

Many thanks to George Lunn of the Belfast City Mission for his beautiful religious service.

Many thanks to Danny Kinahan, the Northern Ireland’s first veterans commissioner for his reading.

Thanks to Francis Strain Bagpiping Services

Thanks to young Clarke for his poem reading.

Many thanks to Robert Foster and the Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough council for their help.

A massive thank you to volunteers of RATH and Dalaradia for their tireless work. The harder work starts now!

More photos and a video of the event will be shared in the coming days. The garden is an open space and is available to members of the community to lay crosses until Thursday 12th November, please feel free to at any stage.

The main aim of the garden? You can read our initial announcement here – https://www.facebook.com/104568031425159/posts/109030924312203/?extid=0&d=n
