Youth Club - This year’s youth club got off to a roaring success with huge numbers turning up for the first night. Nearly 60 children from both parishes enjoyed a night of fun and games and they were delighted to get together again and make new friends. Many of the children hadn’t seen each other since the hurling and camogie season finished up, so it was a very sociable evening indeed.
The next youth club night takes place this Friday, 25th November, and the children can look forward to a visit from the very popular Ruth Moloney and her team from ‘The Den’. There will also be other games, music, art and craft on the night.
The venue for the next club night is the Boherlahan Sports Complex and it will run from 7 p.m. – 8.15 p.m. New members are always welcome. We would also like to encourage parents, if they can, to help out with supervision on one night of their choice. Names can be given to any committee member.
