Summer Scheme 2015

What a wonderful three days we had.

Glorious sunshine, great fun - alas over all to quickly for another year.

The excellent leadership shown by teenage assistants Eadoin Hamill, Conal McKeever ,Sarah McCann, Kathleen Courtney, Molly McDermott, James McCann, Conor McGlinchey, Emmett Hamill,  Conor Morgan, Bronagh McGrane, Amy Fay, Ciara McGrane and the not so teenage Barry Murphy made this a wonderful experience for the 65 participants that attended.

Out thanks to Ronan McWilliams and our very own Claire Murphy who took the Hurling - many budding stars on display.

To Catherine McCormack and her able assistant Shannon who supplied us with popcorn and candy floss our many thanks - we wish her well in her new venture.

The funds from the Summer scheme have been donated to Ballyhegan Playgroup ba (£250) and to Fr Oliver Brennan (£100) for the new Parish hall fund.

Our thanks to Patrick McCann / Simplyfruit (Ire) Limited for the treats supplied all week, to Brendan Oliver / Oliver's Fruit & Flower Shop  Armagh for supplying the fruit to our scheme and the after school sports club in St Oliver Plunkett's Primary School.

Many laps were completed in the hot sunshine and we succeeded in getting from Ballyhegan to Cork- maybe we will make it back next year to the Club!

Finally our thanks to the field and ground staff and hall committee for having the field and hall in such fine shape for us to take the scheme on this week and to everyone who accommodated and assisted the scheme.

Onwards and upwards to 2016.
