On Sunday, June 20, people from all parts of the parish gathered in the new community field for the first Crossabeg/Ballymurn community challenge. The event consisted of eight different challenges, both physical and mental which provided great sport for participants and supporters alike.
A total of 13 teams competed with participants of all ages, from youths right up to the more mature. The result was in doubt right up to the last event which was the the obstacle course, with Zac Corish's team emerging victorious. His team mates included Tendai O Connor, Séamus Carroll, Niall Rossiter and Mark O`Connor. Zac has challenged all comers to return next year to try to wrestle the perpetual trophy from his grasp.
Younger children were very well catered for also with a range of fun activities organised by members of the youth club. Once everyone had worked up an appetite they were well fed by the local barbeque experts. A most enjoyable evening ensued and it provided the committee with a great opportunity to show off the facilities open to all at the venue.
