A huge word of thanks to Emlyn O Reilly for looking after our gang today in the Old School Ballacolla teaching them all how to bake all sorts of buns, scones and cakes. We can highly recommend Em for anyone wanting to get cakes etc. He had a wonderful way with all our children and adults who couldn't wait for their turn to get in to bake their own buns and cakes. Thank you so much Em, you have made many new friends today and thanks for sending me home some nibbles also. Now for the Grand finale at Roll n Bowl tomorrow. What a great Summer Camp this is turning out to be.
