Mayor Mickey Ruane was delighted to come along and support the group. He said, “It is fantastic to see all these children enjoying sport and learning new skills, the club organisers are to be congratulated and the Council are happy to support this scheme that provides structured and enjoyable activity at an affordable rate for children of all abilities.” The Council have supported 53 courses, in 21 sports and an expected 5000 children and young people will attend the coaching schemes from Annalong, Rostrevor and Newry to Camlough, Crossmaglen and Newtownhamilton.
