Avoca Recycling

The Camogie Club would like to thank Mylie Doyle from the recycling centre for his kind donation of €150 which he presented to the club recently. Mylie raised this money from recycling ink cartridges and he has kindly decided to continue this collection for the Camogie Club, so anyone with ink cartridges or toner cartridges please bring them along to the recycling centre where you you will be helping the camogie club to raise much needed funds. Mylie also recently collected Mobile Phones for the club for which the girls are very grateful.

Since the club will be playing at Senior level next year there willl be some new gear required. To this end Mylie and the recycling centre have a couple of fundraisers in mind for later this year and into the New Year. We will give more information on these nearer to their starting time. In the meantime the club would like to thank Mylie and staff for his continued support
