A huge thank you to all the coaches who helped out and a massive well done to all the children who competed at nationals for their county, you did us proud.


The Emo Youth Club will be starting up at the end of September. We are looking for any unwanted XBox, Playstation or Wii consoles and games to be donated. We are also looking for beanbags. These items would be a great help to get the club up and running and to make it a fun space for the youth in the area.

Contact Dominica Scully on 086 1637828 or Claire Johnston on 087 6747182 if you can help.
