All things Hungarian were celebrated at Yola Farm in Tagoat on Saturday.

Hungarian Day offered people the chance to experience authentic food, dance and hear about the history of the country.

Paul O'Keeffe, a teacher in Tagoat NS, was one of the organisers of the event which, he said, had been hugely successful.

He explained that over the past number of years, the school's population has had about 15% Hungarian pupils and it was decided to celebrate the diversity in the area. This was, he said, the first time the migrant community had organised something within their local community, with their support and help.

A selection of Hungarian dances were performed while food on offer included goulash and other delicacies. In total, between 100 and 150 people attended the event.

Mr O'Keeffe said: 'I would imagine that we will organise this event again in the future as it was great fun, and everyone really enjoyed it.'
