Day 2 done and dusted. Check out some of the photos from this years West Cork Foróige Leadership Programme in Dunmanway. Tomorrows leaders in the making.
Dunmanway Foróige Club members will be working with club volunteer Liam Davin at his recording studio, Carrig Sound in order to develop a CD. Members have to pick three songs which they want to put on the CD before heading to the studio to make a recording. Each member will be named as creators of the record and members are looking forward to experiencing the "music buzz". A huge thank you goes out to Liam who is donating his time to the club for the production of the CD.

Last friday night Nicole Ryan, whose brother Alex died tragically on Monday 19th January 2016 from a drug overdose, gave a talk to Newcestown Foróige members. Nicole spoke to members and leaders about Alex growing up a "gentle giant" at 6ft 5 inches. Keen sportsman, loving son and brother, great musician, Alex had just completed his leaving cert and started first year at college. Life was going great for him until that tragic night when he overdosed on synthetic drugs. Nicole explained different drugs now available and the dangers of these unregulated products. She told us the harrowing details of his last days at CUH. The importance of organ donation and eduacating every one on the havoc these drugs are causing to families. As a group we cannot stress how fantastic and brave Nicole was in speaking to us. Please support Nicole in her 'Alex's Adventure of a Lifetime' campaign. Also last Friday night we all went to Mahon point cinema. Majority of us went to see "Split" and a few went to see "Lion". We all had a great night. This Friday coming we're invited to Bandon Foroige for a pizza and movie night, before that a community guard is coming to talk to both of the Foroige groups. We're all looking forward to an enjoyable night.
