No youth club this week, we would like to wish all our members, leaders and supervisors, a very happy and peaceful Easter. Good luck to Sean Kehoe, Cameron Steel and Nigel Donohoe in the badminton competition this week. Thanks to the FAI for doing their futsal workshop with the lads on Friday, they all really enjoyed the session. Congratulations to Pat Kelly, who was elected unanimously as Chairperson for the Wexford area FDYS youth club committee. Well done Pat.


Apologies to Darragh Allen for missing him out of the report last week. Darragh won a gold medal in the boys Under 16 Butterfly and in the boys under 16 relay squad, and will go onto Represent us in Athlone in August.
