On the Boules Court recently installed by FCC Parks Department nearly thirty people turned up for the Boules Coaching Course organised with Tom Donnellan (Bayside Boules) in early February for people to learn the basic rules and techniques of the game.
They came from various organisations Active Age for All, Men’s Shed etc and as individuals, to learn how to play, so we would all be on the same page! FCC have been active in building courts in various parks in Fingal recently and when this is well underway, we hope they will consider a second court for Newbridge Park. This would complete a recreational hub with the Croquet area which already allows for two games to take place at the same time. It was a great success - Tom a true professional and in the past a PE Teacher, along with his good wife Eileen - delivered a great course - easy to understand with everyone getting a go, it was also great fun! Can we especially thank Lourda Darcy from FCC - for pulling out all the stops to get not just one but two seats in place in the perfect location, sitting at right angles to the court promoting good socialising! Also, the Boules Rules signage board is excellent.Congrats again to all at FCC for the Court and to all the people who turned up to learn & play! Breda Dockrell 086 8693243
