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.
Michael McGuire, Club Leader at Louisburgh Foróige Club has reached out to us to share a photo of their Citizenship celebrations in 1972! How things have changed…though the trophy is still the same, now emblazoned with the names of citizenship winners from the last 40+ years.
Michael says, “Our club currently has 58 of the nicest young people you could ever ask to meet, aged from 12 to 17. We have several nationalities within the club and we are growing year on year.
The young historians at Riverstick Foróige Club in Cork have been actively involved in the centenary commemoration of the sinking of the Lusitania which was torpedoed by a German U-boat in 1915. They attended a meeting about the history of the ship and its exploration, hosted by the Blackwater Sub Aqua Search and Rescue team and were then presented with an original piece of the hull of the ship!
We have been have supplied with a range of cool prizes to give away, one prize per month until the Foróige Youth Citizenship Awards Show in partnership with Aldi Ireland in October. We will be offering prizes to the best photos and videos you send to us each month which depict citizenship in action!
