ON Saturday July 6, City of Derry YFC members were kept very busy at Country Comes to City, which is one of the biggest country events held in Ebrington Square, Londonderry, from 4:30pm until 11pm. Great night with Derek Ryan headlining the event alongside Mike Denver, Johnny Brady and Alish McBride.
Five City of Derry members, Tom Parkhill, Ryan Kelly, Jemma Gamble and Lynne and Emma Montgomery, helped collect tickets at the gates and go round with collection buckets throughout the large crowd. Great evening was had by all and even the weather stayed dry as the public jived the night away.
On the Sunday morning members headed back to the square to help gather all the litter and take down posters and banners and security fences.
On Monday July 22 members Tom Parkhill, Jemma Gamble and Emma Montgomery arrived at Ebrington Square to receive a cheque from Country Comes to City as City of Derry Young Farmers’ Club was one of the chosen charities alongside neighbouring Dungiven Young Farmers’ Club.
City of Derry YFC were privileged to have been given the opportunity yet again to help out for the third year running of Country Comes to City.
