Community Games

Aughrim Annacurra community games will hold their AGM on Wednesday 9th October in Aughrim Sports Field and hall at 8.30pm. We are always delighted to see new faces not to come on any committees but to listen and hear what we are all about.  We have on average over 80 children taking part in various activities of community games. Please follow our FB page. To keep the games going we always need support and new volunteers. Look forward to seeing you.
