National Play Day 2023, an open event for all youth in County Westmeath, was successfully hosted at Athlone Regional Sports Centre on Friday afternoon last.

An evolving event, National Play Day 2023 boasted in excess of 350 people in attendance which included attendees from youth projects in Athlone, Mullingar and other rural areas of Westmeath. In addition, Ukrainian and international youths were supported to attend from their accommodations centres across the county.

The event provided both structured and unstructured play, hosting nature camps, magic shows and face-painting, as well as different sports tasters like soccer skills, karate, orienteering, pickleball and table tennis.

An area was made available to the youngest of guests who participated in giant jenga and pot luck to name but a few activities. A picnic was also provided for the attendees and a small toy provided to all those in attendance.

This year's Play Day was supported by Westmeath County Council, Westmeath Community Development, Westmeath Sports Partnership, Westmeath Public Participation Network, Athlone Family Resource Centre and Athlone Regional Sports Centre.

Westmeath County Council would like to thank all the agencies who have supported this event. Without their support this event could not have been the success this it was, the aim being a more popular and better attended occasion in 2024!
