PRO – 2nd Year Committee
In our first year the club kept busy; We held our own talent show where one act went to represent the club in Foroige’s Got Talent, we attended various Foroige discos and events and held a sponsored walk along the Castlebar/Turlough Greenway which was a great success. The year finished off with a very enjoyable day out to Tayto Park.
So far this year we have organised Club Hoodies for members and leaders. Soon we are holding a sponsored Wakeathon on Friday, 23rd of February to raise funds for the club and on March 23rd , we host a Foroige Disco and look forward to welcoming other clubs to Turlough. We shall again be taking part in Foroige’s Got Talent competition with 2 musical acts – 1st Year represented by Band of Strings and T5 are representing 2nd/3rd years.
Recently Turlough Foroige was successful in getting a grant from the ETB Local Youth Club Equipment Scheme and this money will be used to purchase much needed equipment and games etc which the members can use at their meetings.
