Dungiven YFC have had a busy month beginning with their annual May Day tractor run which was held on May 6 this year and was in aid of Rossmar School’s Building Development fund.

Despite the damp, rainy conditions, there were over 70 tractors at the run so being the largest run yet for Dungiven YFC.

There were no winners but members had a blast taking part in the slippy football, sack race and other fun team games.

Recently the members of Dungiven YFC have started stock judging practices for the upcoming beef and sheep county heats which will be held at the start of June.
