Community Games

The Golden Volunteer Award took place on Saturday in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel Athlone and the overall National winner was our very own Golden lady Lilly Kavanagh from Enniskerry. It was so exciting. Congratulations Lilly from all of us. Thank you to all who voted for Lilly through the Irish Independent.
The Leinster round two U15 Boys Badminton took place last Monday in Annacurra and our boys won and are through to the semi-finals in Carlow on Sunday April 2nd. Well done and good luck. Next Friday is the U14 County Quiz in Annacurra with over 20 teams taking part and competing for a place in the National finals in Dublin. Last year Aughrim/Annacurra were the county winners so lets hope we can do it again.
