Moyvane/Knockanure Youth Club:
Now that the Youth Club year has come to an end, the club would like to thank everyone for their support. All the leaders who generously gave up their free time to oversee all the goings on (some even had to endure the stress of going to Delphi!), all the parents, who – as always, provided great help all year, and finally to all members, without you there would be no Youth Club – you don’t realize how proud we are of all of you! We had plenty of activities this year, including ice-skating, bowling, dog track, paintballing, disco’s, drugs information evening, jewelry making and a weekend away in Delphi Mountain Resort. As many of these trips were subsidized by the club, we hope for the same level of support next year so that we can fundraise and continue to subsidize as many trips as possible. Please give generously to our Church Gate Collection which will be on June 5th & 6th in Moyvane and Knockanure. We look forward to seeing you all again next year, along with any new members/leaders who wish to join in September.

Ballydonoghue Bereavement Group:
A meeting will be held in Lisselton National School on Tuesday, June 8th from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. The support group is for those whose lives have been touched by bereavement either recently or in the past and who are trying to come to terms with their loss. This is totally confidential and free of charge and is a safe place where you can share your experience with other people who really understand how you feel.
