The sun beamed down and spilled out on to the lawn at Artramon House as over 500 people gathered for the first Crossabeg Senior Citizens Open Day.

Crowds of people of all ages gathered outside the Castlebridge property to share, tea, coffee and food under the glorious Sunday sunshine. Secretary of the Crossabeg Senior Citizens Committee Mary Quinn said that the event was 'very successful'.

'It was brilliant. It was terrific!,' she said. 'Everyone was lying out on the grass in the sun. We had tour guides giving some people tours as well. This was our first open day and it went very well.'

The funds raised on the day have yet to be counted. All of the proceeds will go towards the Crossabeg Senior Citizens.
