Healthy Events 2013: Last Friday evening all who attended Youth Club were enlightened about mental health by a presentation from Finola Colgan of Mental Health Ireland. She gave us all tips for building resilience which we are passing on to all the parents. Finola helped us to see that we can expand our positive message to the wider community and we hope to approach both schools and parents associations with the information. The excellent website www.aisling.ie is recommended to everyone for further information. We will continue to focus on positive mental health for the next few weeks so feel free to contact Brigette or Leslie for more details. Thanks to all the children who gave their attention and participated in the lively debates on the night.
U10 Girls County Champions: Congratulations to the U10 girls team of Melissa O’Kane, Keeva Gillen, Anna Hayden, Sarah McPhillips, Laura Farrell, Katie Halpin, Saoirse McLoughlin & Claragh Shannon who are the new U10 Girls Indoor Soccer champions for Co. Longford. Throughout the 2 day competition all the girls put in a fantastic team effort. After winning the semi-final against Carrickedmond they faced Longford South in the County Final on Sunday and emerged the County winners. A great victory for all involved! The girls will continue to train so they will be ready for more action in the Leinsters next month. Thanks to Noelle Gillen, Laura McPhillips & Caitriona Hayden for working with the girls and leading them to 1st place and 8 gold County medals.
Indoor Soccer Boys: Well done to the U10 Boys Indoor Soccer team who took part in the Community Games Indoor competition last weekend. Ronan Gallagher & Michael Mulleady had a fine line up to play: Jack Gallagher, Jack Mulleady, Ronan Keenan, Cathal Farrell, Joseph Carrigy, Jack Briar & Ben Callan. Even though the lads were knocked out by a much stronger side they enjoyed the challenge and got a lot more familiar with this very fast paced game.
