Sports & Social

Fishing Outing is cancelled due to Covid-19 / John Higgins or Karl McGee
The committee have considered the worsening situation of the virus and the risks to our members in going ahead with the outing.
The best way to mitigate the risk is to postpone the outing, and as a committee, we have decided that for safety reasons, the Ardaire outing WILL NOT go ahead as planned.
Hopefully we will be able to reschedule for a later time. All remaining outings will be reviewed by the committee in light of government and HSE recommendations.
