Country Comes to City was another big night of the summer in the calendar as members were giving a helping hand at the concert and the morning after to clear up after the night before.

A great night was had by all and a word of thanks must go to Ivan Parkhill and the team at Country Comes to City for their donation towards the club for helping out.

The tag rugby heats took place in Ballymoney Rugby Club and congratulations must go to Dungiven’s senior team who went through to the finals at the end of July, where they received an award for Fair Play.

Well done to all juniors and seniors who participated in the event!
