Congratulations to Tony Bermingham who came fourth in the National Art and modelling competition recently in Athlone, and to Zara Mulvihill and Áine Bannon who won medals at the County Community Games Track and Field events recently in Ballymahon.  Well done to all the local children who competed, and to those who mentored them.

Kellogg’s GAA Cul Camp
As school holidays are almost upon us our focus now changes to our local Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp. As in previous years these camps provide boys and girls – between the ages of 6 and
13 – with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holidays which revolves around maximising enjoyment and sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Games while also supplying each child with a full kit and gear bag. This year our local camp will take place again in Lanesboro from 30th July to 3rd August. Discounted bookings can be
availed of by visiting If you are considering sending your son/daughter to a camp this summer we would definitely recommend a Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp.
