Would anyone be interested in a ‘Drimnagh Festival of Sport’. My idea is that over the year all the different sports clubs put on a special event to advertise their club and to promote a positive image of the Drimnagh community. Size is unimportant, what matters is that Drimnagh has an incredibly strong history of sporting achievement and this should be celebrated. Check out Eamon Coughlan’s famous indoor mile world record. Your comments please.

    Considering the huge number of sports clubs/organisations in the Drimnagh area and the huge number of men and women who came from Drimnagh and went on to international success, I believe it would be a great idea to hold a ‘Festival of Sport’.

    There have been a few likes on the Drimnagh & St John Bosco FC Facebook pages for this Festival as well.

    Maybe some sort of meeting could be arranged to get some action on the idea while it is hot.

    I am trying to contact as many sports clubs as possible in the Drimnagh area with a view to organising a meeting to discuss the possibility of a ‘Festival of Sport’ in Drimnagh for later in the year, possibly September. Everything from Archery to Zycling(sorry!)
