Boherlahan Dualla Ladies Football
Our LIDL One Good Club initiative continues and out current theme is GIVE. As part of this we provided some refreshments to the Dualla Craft Group held on Sat 2nd July in Dualla Community Hall. Thanks to our young footballers for serving some lovely baked treats.
It was a great morning facilitated by Cecile Mulcahy. Dualla Craft Group meets every Saturday morning from 10:30 - 11:30. All new members welcome. You can bring along your knitting, sewing, and crochet or simply bring yourself along for a chat & cup of tea. The newly refurbished hall in Dualla is stunning and acts as the perfect venue for such a sociable gathering. It was a pleasure to sit down and have a chat with these lovely bunch of local ladies. A few of us even managed to get a crash course in the art of crotchet.
We also fortunate that the sun came out as we GIVE a hand to the Tidy Villages in Boherlahan. Thanks to the players & parents who came out to help. There’s always work to be do in this area and we are going to continue to GIVE some help when we can. The Tidy Villages team meet again next Tuesday evening at 7:30pm if anyone would like to help out.
Doing good is good for us. Helping others makes us feel needed and valued and leads to a more compassionate society. So, do something nice. Give up your seat. Give a compliment. Thank someone. Smile. These simple steps can create and strengthen connections with those around you. Stay tuned to our social media platforms for details on our activities over the next few weeks

To date we have purchased an adjacent 4.6 acre field, which has been developed as a second pitch. The development of this training pitch is paramount to training boys and girls across all age groups, most notably on a Saturday when an enthusiastic crowd of up to 150 juvenile members can be seen training simultaneously. A new all-weather astro-turf pitch (75m x 40m) complete with floodlights, has been invaluable for facilitating training during the October – March period and minimising damage to the grass pitches. Further, the boundary hurling walls to the astro turf pitch have proven vital for the practice of hurling, camogie and football skills for all age groups.
As a rural community, the installation of a 1.1km community walkway, complete with LED energy efficient lighting, has proven hugely popular and acts as a magnet for walkers, joggers and our hugely popular weekly “pacemakers” event. Further, the Club’s increased activities has resulted in an enlarged membership and greater participation rates and as a consequence extended car parking facilities have been installed.
Lastly, the Club continues to look to the future and has on-going aspirations with respect to Clubhouse improvement works and has begun the process to scope and design same, including the provision of enlarged dressing rooms and gymnasium.
Needless to say, none of the above would have been possible without the financial support and community participation from our parishioners and local business’s, for which the Club is eternally grateful.
