As part of our ongoing drugs and alcohol awareness programme , we in partnership with The Magnet Centre and START 360 held a very informative evening on Wednesday.

Support For Crossmaglen & District First Responders

Last Friday a hugely successful event took place at Greenore Golf Club. In recognition of Mr Gene Duffy being appointed Captain of Greenore Golf Club , we were proud to be part of a golf classic fundraiser. Gene nominated Crossmaglen & District First Responders as his chosen charity.
Gene Duffy and Margurite Donaghy presented a cheque for €2000 to Aoibhean Byrne Brennan ( Cross & District first responders ), a fantastic amount for a very worthy cause.

The overall winner of the Golf Classic was Declan Smith. Congratulations Declan.

A special presentation was made to Gene by Joe Kernan, Michael McEntegart and Peter Byrne.

Well done to everyone who organised the event and who took part and we all send good wishes to Gene in the year ahead.
