Aughrim notes week October 17


Sheep Breeders

Aughrim Sheep Breeders committee would like to thank everybody involved in helping to make their recent show and cabaret such a great success.  As next year 2017 is the show’s 50th anniversary we are compiling a celebratory booklet.  We would be delighted with any memorabelia, photos etc. of shows over the last 50 years (everything will be returned ).  Please contact Breda Devitt Durkin at 087 3299634 or Sean O’Neill at 087 9188131.

Active Retirement

A great day was had by all our members who went on the recent trip to Goatsbridge Trout Farm, and Leighlinbridge Arboretum.  Monday coffee mornings have recommenced. All interested are welcome to attend at 10.30am in Lawless’ Hotel. Our guest speaker at the November meeting will be Joan O’Reilly, Woodenbridge Cottage preserves.

Community Games AGM

This Wednesday October19th is our AGM. It takes place in the coffee dock in the Aughrim Community Sports & Leisure complex at 8.30pm. Please come along and support your local club. It can’t run itself so no committee no club. We are all volunteers with families and jobs but to give something back to our children is no hardship it’s a pleasure.
Look forward to seeing a few new faces.  Last year we had a very successful group of transition students that did their An. Gaisce award through volunteering and helping our coaches every Monday night. We would like to support that again. If there are any boys and girls who can come along from any of our local secondary schools please do or contact me Fiona Shannon 0872218366. An extra pair of hands is always welcome.

Ballycoog ICA Guild will celebrate 50years on Thursday 3rd November and to celebrate this special event in the life of our guild we are holding an Evening in St. Kevin’s Hall Ballycoog on November 3rd at 6.45pm , we would like past members to join with us on this evening, please contact 0872125031 if you can make it.
