Many Ahoghill members attended the YFCU County Antrim Dinner in Tullyglass House Hotel with member Jason Benton receiving a prize for tractor handling.

In October, Kilrea YFC hosted Ahoghill for an exciting exchange meeting in Kilrea Primary School.

Both clubs had a fantastic turn out of members to take part in a great night of fun and games that Kilrea had organised.

Ahoghill would like to thank Kilrea for this night. The club look forward to hosting their neighbour later in the year.
