Kids Day Out is a wonderful day celebrated every June by the children of St.Paul's and Scoil Eanna. This event is organised and funded by the 4 Rotary Clubs of Cork city; Douglas, Cork, Bishopstown and Glanmire. Due to their great generosity and kindness the children were collected by bus, courtesy of Bus Éireann and brought to Dolphin Rugby Club. Here they were laden down with sweets and treats supplied by Musgraves while Silver Pail Ice cream cooled everyone down with their ice pops.
