Our Launch Day

Our official Launch took place on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th, 2012). Miranda and I were astounded at the turnout with between 300 and 400 people visiting us throughout the day. I’ve never seen a traffic jam on the Copper Coast before! Thank you all for making it a very special day. The storm cleared and the sun came out. At one stage it simply wasn’t possible to squeeze through the front door with the amount of people that were inside.

Claire Mc Alister kept us all topped up. Colleen and Audrey’s edible creations were surrounded by Pamela Silin-Palmer’s wonderful Bunny Chairs. David’s bowls were licked clean. Ciaran, John, Mook, Alex, Margaret and Hy captured the whole event on film. Kids got up to mischief and dogs barked. Hy stood up on one of the tables to officially launch us into the world. Alive and kicking, ready for action. Below is a taste of the atmosphere of the day. Sean.
