THE busy month of April for Lisnamurrican YFC started when seven members headed to Dungannon to compete in the Presentation Demonstration competition. Congratulations must go to Alexis Kidd who gained 1st place in 16-18, Katie Witherspoon who gained 3rd place in 18-21 and Jonny McMaster who gained 3rd place in 25-30.

Next up many members headed to the Dairy Stock Judging Heats at Beatties Farm, Dunloy. Here Alexis Kidd and Christine Maybin were both placed 2nd in their respective age groups. The girls will now progress to the final.

n Alexis Kidd was placed first at Demonstration + Presentation competition in the 16-18 age group :

With Derek Ryan preforming at Ballymena Livestock Market on July 13, tickets went on sale at the start of the month and sold out in a phenomenal 10 days! A new record for the club! We look forward to this big night.

The club had a cheque presentation evening where two cheques were presented to charities. One totalling £3,368.02 in aid of Cystic Fibrosis, raised from the annual Truck and Tractor run in January. The second was raised at the Charity Leg Wax and totalled £1,412.16 for the Community Rescue.

The club then headed to the YFCU AGM where outgoing Club Treasurer Teresa Connon was placed 1st overall Treasurer in Northern Ireland for the second year running. Well Done Teresa!

At the County Antrim Girls football heats Lisnamurrican were out in force wearing their brand new football kits kindly sponsored by J&R Fuels and Country Bite Outside Catering. Big congratulations goes to Senior Team 1 and Junior Team 1 who made it through to the final. This will take place on Thursday, May 16, at Balmoral Show.
