The Crossroads and Killygordon Wednesday Club for older people have again been crowned champions of the Donegal Curling League.
For the third year, they won the competition, sitting at the top of the table with 201 points, 22 ahead of neighbors Lifford.
The league is run by The Donegal Sports Partnership (DSP), along with the support of the Health Promotion Department in the HSE.
Rebranded as ‘New Age Curling’, it is a specially adapted version of the official sport (curling), by Go for Life, the national sports programme for older people.
Co-ordinator of the Killygordon Wednesday Club, John Butler, said the Curling League was a massive success, helping keep the older people of Donegal active and competitive.
“I would like to congratulate all our team members and to thanks Karen Gutherie and the DSP for making the competition such a success,” he said.
The final league standings were: CAKE Wednesday Club (201 pts); Lifford (178); (Stranorlar 159); Letterkenny (158); Raphoe (154); Castlefin (144) and Manorcunningham (140).
The jubilant Killygordon team will be presented with its trophy in the New Year at their Oaktree Community Centre base.
The winning team includes Michael McMenamin, Tommy Hannon, Annie Callaghan, Eugene Quinn, Teresa Ward, John and Sally Butler, Anna and Seamus Quigley, Maggie Martin and Mary Patton.
The Wednesday Club continues every week at the Oaktree Centre, from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm.
The cub has become a very popular meeting place for the older people of the parish. Events include bingo, card playing, dominoes, crafts music, dancing to resident musician Danny Sweeney, art painting, craic and plenty of tea, coffee and scones.
The organisers say more people are welcome to call in and avail of the facilities there.
