Opening weekend celebrations just 5 days away
Loughmacrory will be buzzing with anticipation this week in the build-up to the eagerly awaited completion, launch and opening weekend celebrations in the Community on 28th June 2014. A host of activities have been planned for what promises to be another major milestone in the development of the community.
The Ulster One Wall Handball Championships and Loughmacrory Fish Fest will get underway from Saturday morning and the days activities will build up to 2pm when the facility tour, exhibitions, refreshments and the official opening ceremony will then go ahead.
There will also be an under 10 football blitz on the day with Loughmacrory, Errigal Ciaran, Cappagh and Beragh participating while there will be a Triathlon Club relay race to look forward to in the Lough. The Lough 5 group will be showing the new running track around the football pitch and it will be a chance to check out a full exhibition of activities on a display put together by the St. Teresa’s Primary School in the newly revamped and extended Loughview Centre. This will also provide an opportunity to check out the new Gym overlooking the Lough with Paula Donaghy and her team there to showcase what is on offer.
Of course there will also be an enhanced atmosphere as the Loughmacrory Band, ‘Paisti Na Greine’, has been reformed and will lead what promises to be a fantastic occasion.
At 7.30pm that evening, in the new stand, there will be a special Vigil Mass.
The days proceedings will conclude on Saturday evening in the clubrooms with a great night of entertainment and music from The Bleed ‘n Cowboys.
Overall a terrific day of activities, with a host of special dignitaries and guests to be present on the day, is in store on Saturday and remember too that The Ulster One Wall Handball Championships will continue with semi finals and all the major finals on Sunday 29th June and the Loughmacrory Fish Fest will also continue throughout Sunday.
Preview information will continue on Loughmacrory.com this week in the build-up to this exciting weekend of activities.
