Get ready for the Great Ball Race in Falcarragh

In a unique fundraising drive for the famine victims in Somalia, the community of Cloughaneely have organised a Ball Race down Well Brae of Falcarragh to help raise funds for Concern.

Balls are being sold with a number, and the first ball to whizz past the finish line will be declared The Great Ball 2011.

Spectators and avid ball owners are encouraged to attend the event to ensure the balls make it to their destination by subtle nudging, cheering and encouraging dabs of the feet.

It’s a fun event but it has been organised for a very serious situation.
