BALLYHEIGUE NOTES – 22.8.2017

COMMUNITY GAMES 2017: Brilliant success from the National games in
Abbottstown, Dublin. Shauna Casey daughter of Adrian and Mary received 1st
place in the U-16 Model Making. Shauna has a fantastic talent and we are
thrilled for her. Stephen Harty son of Kieran and Shiela came in 4th place
in the U-8 80m. By all accounts Stephen had fantastic races and was
unlucky not to be placed higher. This is one young lad who we will be
watching out for. Very well done to Shauna and Stephen from the Community
Games Committee.
