John Bird from ’Loving Spoonful’ jewelry and sculpture took a workshop at the Men’s Shed last week and everyone went home with a trinket they made themselves.

 

In the Cumann Na Bunscol Indoor Gaelic at Dunavil on Thursday past Grange and St Dallans qualified, well done.

 

The Mourne LOHAH group visited Dunavil on Thursday for a look around the club and sampled some gaelic games in the process, thanks to Joe Baldwin and Gavin Finnegan for their assistance.

 

At the South Down GAA Awards, An Riocht were awarded a Chairman’s Award and Neil Cousins and Michael A. O’Rourke received Referee Awards.

 

The final Community Pharmacist session took place at Dunavil with Sandra Gordon Cancer Focus facilitating an informative workshop; everyone who attended the series of workshops really took something from them.
