We continue with Ireland Lights up in Riverstown Park on Mondays and Thursdays at 7.30PM - everyone welcome.
We will be hosting a Couch to 5K in conjunction with Sligo Sports Partnership starting on Wednesday 21st February in Riverstown Park. The cost is €30 for 6 weeks and a registration night will be held on Monday 12th in Riverstown Park between 6.30PM and 7.30PM. If you can't make this time to register, please contact any committee member. 
As part of our Healthy Club initiatives, we have been successful in an application for a social initiative between the GAA and Specsavers to establish a connection between older and more vulnerable members of our community. Under this initiative, we plan to organise a trip to the Sligo NFL game against Antrim in Markievicz Park on Sunday 25th February. We plan to organise a bus, tickets and some refreshments on the day and it would be great if we could reach out to members of our community who would be interested in this trip - please contact Marina Swann on 086 8589048 if you know someone who may be interested.
The club was saddened to learn of the passing of Michael Boyd, Letterkenny at the weekend. Michael would have played for the Gaels in the early days of the club and we express sympathy with Vivion, Pat and Alexis and all of the Boyd family and friends on Michael's passing. We also express sympathy with the family of Ellen Moran (nee Gaffney), Swords and formerly of Gleann who dies recently.
