Community, Health, Wellbeing and Youth Forum:
The Club was delighted to host our first ever Community, Health, Wellbeing and Youth Forum in the Villa Rose Hotel Ballybofey on Saturday the 23rd of February. We wish to express our immense gratitude to the Villa Rose for their second to none hospitality and assistance in getting set up. Also, many thanks to all who sponsored prizes for the event and to all the exhibitors and the public and community itself for coming out in such great numbers, “without you, there would be no us”. #OurCommunityYourClub

Ireland Lights Up:
We concluded our “Ireland Lights Up” club initiative in conjunction with Operation Transformation for 2019 last Thursday night with our highest number of participants to date. 141 children and adults from our Community and Club registered for the walk. A huge thank you as always to our stewards and to everyone who helped in any way. We were delighted as a club to be able to support this initiative and support our Community in becoming more active by providing access to our safe, secure and bright walkway. This was a great opportunity also for us as a club to showcase our fantastic facilities and encourage participation in such a fun and simple Community initiative.
