It was the 'Starting Out' Clubs first night back since the Christmas break and it was straight into 'action' for their Citizenship project. 💪💪 Instructor Niamh guided them through the steps on making some bath bombs which will form part of a hamper that each member will give to an elderly member of our community. They also have been tasked with creating some 'winter wooly wonders' that will also be added to the hampers. 🐑🐑🍃❄ Finally we were delighted to welcome our new volunteer, Rebecca to the club who is co ordinating a very exciting 6 week Engineering Programme for members leading into Engineering Week in late Feb. 📐📏📋🚀 Exciting times ahead! #youth #citizenship #engineering #weareforoige

Great day at the the West Cork Foroige soccer ⚽⚽ tournament with the Starting out Club & the older club entering teams. Despite not getting into silverware territory - a heated💥💥 5th place playoff between both clubs took place. The Older club took an early lead but the starting out club scored an equaliser in the 2nd half. With a lot at stake penalties was going to be the decider with the Starting Out club taking the spoils! 🎉 an appeal has been lodged however by the Older Club disputing the result. More to Follow.
