Well done to all members who attended and took part.

Congratulations must go to three of the members who got placed: Louise Conn who was first in the sheep competition, John Baird who was second in the silage competition and James Purcell who was fourth in the beef competition.

Dungiven had a very successful day at Limavady Show which was held on 15th July. Members from the club took part in many different competitions throughout the day one of which was the Chairman’s Challenge.

This was a new competition this year which consisted of members getting a good soaking while trying to complete an obstacle course. Dungiven’s A team gained a respectable second place in this competition. #
