Among the 1,500 who turned up in Dalgan last Sunday to enjoy the Family and Mission Open Day were representatives from China, Korea and Aitece.
The glorious weather showed Dalgan at its best and the international involvement brought extra colour and excitement.
The Chinese Catholic Community provided free Chinese tea and an opportunity to draw Chinese characters. They also sang and led a square dance.
The Korean Catholic Community were also there to show support and a local Tae-kwan-do team displayed their skills.
The AITECE teachers gathered from as far away as Cork and Leitrim with Garreth Byrne, in particular, encouraging passers-by to teach in China or tell their friends and neighbours about the opportunities.
With so many activities it was difficult to see and meet everyone and hopefully we don’t have to wait 100 years for the next occasion.
