The Parish of Abbeyfeale have organized a weekend of events May 15th – 17th to commemorate and celebrate a little girl loved and missed by so many. The weekend will start with a Variety Show in the Glorach on Friday, May 15 at 8pm featuring Irish music, song and dance and of course the music of One Direction, Zoë’s favourite group. There will be a special performance from Zoë’s friends who attended Scoil Mhathair De with her and loads of surprises on the night. Saturday, May 16th will see Abbeyfeale’s first organized cycling event, fittingly called a Challenge in honour of Zoë’s competitive nature. There will be two cycles, a 105km Abbeyfeale & District Cycle of the 8 parishes, leaving Fr. Casey’s at 10am followed by a 35km Circuit of Abbeyfeale (Controlled Cycle) at 1pm. Registration for both of these will open in Fr. Casey’s GAA Clubhouse Abbeyfeale on Friday, May 15th from 7pm-9pm and again on Saturday from 8am-9.30am and from 11am-12.30pm. The official starter for the cycle will be 87 year old local poet, Jackie Harnett who continues to cycle the roads around Abbeyfeale as he has done since boyhood. A Benefit Dance with The Micheal Collins Band and dancing from 9.00pm will bring the day to a lively end. Sunday is Family Fun Day at Fr. Casey’s GAA grounds from 2pm-6pm and will involve all the activities that shaped Zoë into the fun, talented, sporty and determined little girl that made her family so proud. The day will consist of sporting blitzes, kiddie’s disco, Bouncy Castles, dog show, face painting and loads more, a day for all the family
