Me and my Foróige, by Oisín Bowyer aged 13

Hi, my name is Oisín Bowyer. I'm thirteen years old and I'm a member of The Epicentre Foróige club in Carndonagh, Co. Donegal. I first got involved with Foróige a year ago when I was twelve and I can remember the day when a Regional Youth Officer and Club Leader came to my national school and made a presentation about Foróige as an organisation. From that day on I knew I wanted to get involved!On those cold September nights I'd go along to the club after school. It really helped me to relax, forget about school and life's worries. Foróige for me was my own little haven and still is to this day.
