Moycraig Young Farmers have enjoyed another fantastic summer of sunshine, events, competitions and shows.

The bumper summer kicked off with the junior boys winning first prize in football at Ballymoney Show, closely followed by another win in the boys hockey competition at Ballymena show. These competitions along with many others have resulted in Moycraig winning its fifth consecutive year of County Superclub. Well done to all who competed!

The busy summer continued with the annual barbecue on 6 July at McMullans Farm, Armoy. A great night’s entertainment was enjoyed by all. Tag rugby was the next activity on Moycraig’s agenda. They held their annual tag rugby evening at Armoy Rugby Club on 19 July, just in time for the YFCU annual tag rugby competition. Both senior and junior teams took to the pitch for the annual competition and made it all the way to the finals.

Further events were the YFCU Rally Day, a day trip to M&D’s theme park and a new members’ evening at Armoy Rugby Club.

Six club members also made their way to South Roscommon to join Macra na Feirme. Macra is an organisation for young people aged between 17 and 35, in particular young farmers. The weekend consisted of fun and games, workshops and even a visit to the Mike Denver festival. Congratulations must also go to Robert McConaghy for winning the United Dairy Farmers cup during the county competitions day at Antrim Show.

The jam packed winter programme has also got off to a kick start with a visit from Artfrique on 9 September. Other meetings include a Halloween special, club exchanges. Ulster Rugby and a few nights to get the exercise mats out.
