Famous Irish celebrities joined thousands of guests in Barretstown for a magical day to celebrate the charity’s 30th birthday at its annual Big Picnic event.

Barretstown is Ireland’s largest provider of life-changing treatment programmes for children affected by cancer and other serious illnesses.

The castle gates opened for a full day of fun and excitement as guests enjoyed a range of exciting events and attractions including the spectacular Fossett’s Circus, trapeze artists, face painting, music, dancing and much more!

Celebrities included RTÉ Radio One’s Sarah McInerney and model Rosalind Lipsett, who sang Happy Birthday as Barretstown CEO Dee Ahearn cut the official birthday cake.

Visitors also had the opportunity to tour the Barretstown facilities and meet staff and volunteers to see for themselves the life-changing work carried out by the specialist teams working on site.

The charity has helped more than 120,000 campers over the past 30 years and aims to double that number by the end of the decade.
