Down County Board Updates
The AGM will take place on Monday 23 October 2017, at 8 pm in the Thierafurth Inn, Kilcoo. As you are all aware we are moving into a big year ahead, with our 25 years anniversary and the Feile taking place in Down. It is important that we have all our positions filled and we look forward to new members coming on board to our committee.
Remember you are the county board, and you elect your officers, but we will be asking for more help. Please do not put a nominee on without asking the person first.
