The club had their annual club exchange night with Collone Young Farmers’ Club, Robert Ervine taught everyone how to line dance and jive.

It was a fun filled night loved by all the members.

The club then travelled to Crumlin Road Gaol in Belfast for the scare night. Members loved it and can definitely say that most will be back again (except the few that had to be locked up).

Matthew Hylands from Iveagh Vets came along to the club recently and gave members a very interesting veterinary talk which was enjoyed by all.
Annaclone and Magherally YFC would like to thank Matthew again for coming along to talk to the club.
