Community Games
.Summer is coming to an end and where we took a break from training and community games locally there was activity on the National level for some of our local children.
This weekend in Athlone at the National Festival we had Padraig Stafford who took part in the U-10 Hand-writing boys competition and where he didn’t get a medal he did very well.
Next weekend 22nd-24th August is weekend 2 and we have U-8 60m Isabelle Doyle representing County Wicklow and we wish her all the best. In the U-14 Group Dance Ciara Shannon, Rebecca Lawless and Rory Shannon will represent County Wicklow and we hope they enjoy the experience and do very well.
