Carrigallen and Drumeela Active Age
Carrigallen and Drumeela Active Age held their Annual General Meeting recently. Unfortunately, there were no new nominations for the positions of Chairperson, Treasurer, and Secretary. The Officers were asked to serve for another year. Nominations were formally requested, and voted in as Chairperson was Lottie McGerty; Treasurer – Ann Harte and Secretary – Valerie Elsegood. All the Officers stated that this would be the final year they could serve. Members and friends attended a performance of My Aunt Bee at the Corn Mill Theatre, written, and performed by Seamus O'Rourke and featuring Eileen Ward, one of our members and a former Chairperson. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and were pleased to learn that it will be back again later on in the year – good news for those not able to attend last week!

Second All-Ireland Title
Congratulations go to Clare and John Finnegan, daughter and son of Martina and Michael Finnegan, Drummerkane, Carrigallen, who won a second All Ireland Badminton title at the All-Ireland Grade B in Lisburn recently. In the final they lost the first set 13-21, fighting back to take the second set 21-18. The final set was the closest of all with both pairs having opportunities to serve for the title after they tied at 20-20, however, Clare and John managed to make their own little bit of history by winning the tie break 24-22. After their win in Lisburn, Clare and John now hold both the Grade C and Grade B All-Ireland mixed titles in the same season. Well done!

Carrigallen Macra
Titles Night - Macra members from across the county flocked to the Bush Hotel on Saturday night last to battle it out to represent the county in the various Macra competitions over the coming year. Each contestant had to stand up in front of the crowd and undergo an interview giving details about their background and why they felt they would represent the county well on the national stage. Ray Gilmartin was MC on the night with Diarmuid Murray (Roscommon) and Sarah Walsh (Sligo) judging the talent on display. Well done to Brendan Curran, Ann Marie McCaffrey and Brigid Stenson on organising the night. It was a successful night for our club with two members chosen to represent the county. The following people were selected, Emma Coyle (North Leitrim) - Queen of the Land, Paula Kiernan (Carrigallen) – North West Queen, Helen Gannon (South Leitrim)- Ms Macra, Becky McDermott (South Leitrim) - Ms Blue Jeans, Conor Banks (North Leitrim) – North West King and Fergus O'Rourke (Carrigallen) - Mr Personality. Best wishes to all representing our county over the coming year. Leitrim Macra ABU!

Pool Competition
The club recently held a pool competition in MJ's bar to raise funds for the running of the club over the coming year. In a keenly fought competition thirty two players battled it out with Matis Polis and Jack Bell reaching the final. In the end Matis Polis was the winner in a final which went right down to the wire! Both finalists received prize money for their exploits. We were also delighted to have our former Training and Development Officer, Hazel Wilkinson, taking part in the competition. A raffle also took place on the night and the club wishes to thank all who donated spot prizes and bought tickets. We would like to thank MJ's bar for the use of their facilities also. A big well done goes to club treasurer, Brian Kiernan, who came up with the idea, and ran the competition so well.

'Having our Say'
Members from the club attended a #CAP2020 consultation meeting in Sligo recently. This is an initiative run by Macra where meetings were held across the country getting the views of young farmers on what they would like to see discussed and included in the upcoming negotiations on the next round of the Common Agricultural Policy. Members also attended a Macra Strategic Planning meeting in Roscommon where members from the northwest were invited to have their say on what they would like to see changed and improved in Macra and what they see as areas of priority for the organisation in the coming years.

North Leitrim Lipsync
Members from the club went along to a fantastic nights entertainment which our neighbours in North Leitrim Macra held in the Blue Devon Dromahair recently. Contestants were up on stage miming to their song of choice with some very peculiar acts indeed!! Well done to all involved.

Carrigallen and Drumeela Active Age
Carrigallen and Drumeela Active Age have been busy over the last month or two. At the end of November several Members and friends went on a Christmas Shopping Trip to Blanchardstown – where some of the Group went to the Cinema within the Complex to rest their weary feet and watch the latest Bridget Jones film! Stopping in Virginia on the way home for dinner was the perfect end to a really enjoyable day. A month on, in December, and Members and friends celebrated the festive season with their Annual Christmas Party, held this year in Mitchells.

A raffle in aid of our local Multiple Sclerosis Society was held, and raised €160 – a big thank you to all who donated prizes, and those buying the tickets, of course. Thank you too to the staff at Mitchells who made the evening run so smoothly for us, and for providing a lovely meal. Our AGM will be held in February, and we look forward to setting our programme for the coming year. Funding has already been confirmed for some physical activities! Interested in joining us? Then please contact any of our current Members for more information, or alternatively, Lottie (Chairperson); Ann (Treasurer): or Valerie (Secretary 049 4339946).

Couch to 5km kicks Off
Couch to 5km kicks off on Saturday, 14 January 2017 at 9.00am in Carrigallen. A manageable and enjoyable six week training plan even if you are a complete beginner to jogging or just returning to exercise after long layoff from it. We progress gradually and you'll be amazed how quick you can improve and it is hugely satisfying to all of a sudden notice you just jogged a full kilometre etc when at the start 100 meters might have been a struggle.

So if this is something that appeals to you and your family get in touch today. All participants will receive various handouts over the six week program to help and assist you to reach your goal. Each training session takes between 40-60 minutes. We meet each Saturday for the next six weeks and on the 7th will complete the 5km fun run. Text Paul 0838029692 if interested. Children must be accompanied and under parental control throughout. Suitable for most ages and all abilities. As with all new exercise regimes that you plan to partake in, it is advised to get the all clear from a medical professional before starting out.
