Foróige Project

Askamore Foróige enjoying Youth Citizenship Expo in RDS July 2012On Sunday 1st July, members from Askamore Foroige attended the Permanent TSB Foroige Youth Citizenship Expo 2012 in the RDS. Over 140 different clubs from all over Ireland took part for the citizenship awards and ten finalists were selected based on their project and an interview with the judges. Unfortunately we were unsuccessful, but despite this we had a great day!
Various events took place over the day, such as an official opening with the Minister for children, Francis Fitzgerald, professional magicians and jugglers, a zip line over the RDS, meeting with Britain’s Got talent finalist, Ryan O’Shaughnessy and entertainment throughout the day! Ray Foley from Today Fm announced the ten finalists and this was followed by a concert with Ryan O’Shaughnessy.
Our project on putting rest benches on the loop walks on Sliabh Bhui will be displayed in Doran’s shop window for anyone who wishes to see it.

We are looking forward to September when Foroige will recommence.

Askamore Foróige

Askamore Foróige has been very busy over the past few months. These are some of our activities:

Christmas disco in Boolavogue – lots of fun and games

Our committee attended a regional conference in Gorey, learned a lot and then chilled out at Gravity in Courtown

We went to the cinema in Gorey. We saw Jack and Jill. We all loved it and liked the chips on the way home

Here are some photos from last year and the year before of sports day held in Carlow and the treasure hunt and disco held in Askamore for the primary school kids.
