This year Rathfriland YFC turns 75 and its charity partner for the year is the Southern Area Hospice Services (SAHS).

Thanks go to everyone who has sponsored the 75km for 75 Years event so far. If you would still like to sponsor you can do so through any club member and also through the club’s just giving page on Facebook.

The club is also excited to announce its new members’ night to be held on Monday, September 9. If you are aged between

12-30, have an interest in meeting lifelong friends and want to join the best rural youth organisation in Northern Ireland, this is a date for your diary!

This is a night to warmly welcome back current members of the club as well as any potential new members. The fun-filled night will consist of ice-breaker games and a delicious supper, all with the aim of giving you an insight of all that happens in Rathfriland YFC as well as giving you a bit of information about the YFCU (Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster) as a whole.

The YFCU is a non-political, non-sectarian organisation, so everyone is welcome.

FUN: Club Day Out, Bubble Football in Tollymore Forrest Park followed by a barbecue and a bit of craic.
