SOUTH KILDARE ACTIVE RETIREMENT MEETING
The November meeting of South Kildare Active Retired will take place at Moone Hall on Thursday November 29th at the earlier time of 7.30 p.m. This is because Eddie Hennessey of the Kildare Sports Partnership will be demonstrating the Activity Games that will be starting there in preparation for the National ‘Go For Life’ Games.
This is a new initiative for over 55’s that want to join an active retirement association but want to take part in active but not too demanding exercise. The South Kildare branch has been chosen as the centre for the training in this area and teams will be entered in a Countywide Competition next year. One team will be chosen to represent the county in the All Ireland ‘Go For Life’ Games.
Over 55’s from anywhere in South Kildare who wish to see the demonstrations and perhaps participate later are welcome. Don’t be shy, you could win an All Ireland medal yet!
BOWLS IN MOONE
Bowls are held in Moone Hall every Tuesday from 3 to 5pm. They are part of the South Kildare Active Retired programme but you are welcome to call in and see what is going on any Tuesday. Kathleen Brown is in charge and will give you any information you need. Membership of South Kildare Active Retired is open to anyone in the area over 55, but we won’t ask for your birth certificate.
