Community Games AGM

Community Games AGM

The Co AGM of Community Games will take place in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny on Wednesday next, 9th November at 8pm.

Eighteen areas were involved last year and new areas would be most welcome. Remember it is free to join the first year and you must take part in at least four events to qualify.

For information on the games contact the Secretary 0862244243.

The Annual Area and Volunteer awards were announced recently. Each year the areas select one member who has played a major part in organising the Games in their area down the years.

The Adult Volunteer Award goes to Mary O'Donnell, Milford. Mary was a former Co. Secretary. The Youth Volunteer Award winner is Aleesha Herron, Fanad. The best Area Award goes to Letterkenny for being involved in the most events and for the number of competitors involved. The Small Area Award winner is Ramelton. This award goes to an area despite having a small population strives to have as many children as possible involved in the different sports.

The County PRO will also be entering the Media Awards competition. Donegal received the overall Media award last year for the fantastic coverage the Games received in the Local Press.

The National Awards function will take place in Salthill, Galway on the 26th November and areas requiring tickets should contact the Secretary.

A draw for a new car and other great prizes will also take place at the function. Tickets are available from committee members.
