Congratulations to Aoife O'Neill (14), Crossbridge Foróige Club, Co. Wicklow, and Isobel Donnery (15) from Camross Loft Foróige Club, Co. Wicklow, who are through to the semi-final of the Aldi National Junior Baking Competition.
They beat stiff competition at the Regional Baking Final in Dublin yesterday, July 18th.
The theme for 2016 is ‘Muffins of the Moment’, with Isobel baking Lemon Drizzle Muffins, while Aoife baked Rose Chocolate Muffins.
Foróige’s Tramore Youth & Family Project have just completed the town’s first ever Be Well week with support from the Community Foundation of Ireland, along with help from other groups in the community. The project received a grant to host a variety of events with the aim of promoting positive mental health among young people and the community and to raise awareness of mental health illnesses and support services for those who may be struggling.
A total of 24 individuals and organisations were honoured for their commitment and dedication to road safety at this year’s ‘Leading Lights in Road Safety’ Awards, and among the recipients were Oldcastle Foróige Club.
Foróige member Liam O’Driscoll has represented us at the World Forum for Democracy in Strasbourg in the last month. 57 nationalities attended the Forum; an annual gathering of leaders, civil society activists, representatives of business, academia, media, and young people too, to debate key challenges for democracies across the world.
