FOROIGE CLUB

At this week’s meeting, the members decided what they would do for the talent show and achievements night.

There will be a foroige disco afterwards. We also continued to design our flag for the Hype Festival that will be held up in Longford on May 19. We are all looking forward to this event.

LADIES FOOTBALL

Mountrath Ladies Football Club would like to thank every one who bought lines on the bonus ball cards. All the monies raised are going towards our U14 girls Féile fund. The club held a kids table quiz in Mountrath last Friday night and it was a great success. Thanks to all the players, mentors and parents who attended on the night and who donated money and prizes. Also thanks to all of the local businesses who sponsored several spot prizes. It was enjoyed by all and we look forward to the next one. We appreciate your on-going support.

For any new girls who would like to join the club, please feel free to come to the Mountrath GAA pitch on Friday evenings for training from 4-5.15pm or you can phone 0851119550 for further details.
