Aughrim notes October 6


Community Games

What a great first night back to athletics. We had over 100 children all enthusiastic and ready to go. It is great to see regulars and new faces taking part. Welcome back to our coaches and volunteers all very hardworking people. Thank you to the Parents for listening to our quick chat and we hope we can encourage more of you to help out with supervision and training the children because as you could see we had a great group but to maintain their training and standard we need you to help. Its all about the children and making sure they are having fun but most important becoming fit and healthy.!!!!
