Oxfield Annual Table Quiz asks Questions of Community
A four-way tie after 10 rounds of questions! Thats how the 2010 Oxfield annual table quiz ended up after a great night's entertainment in the Yeats Tavern on Friday 5th November. It took a sudden death round to find a winner. The three beaten finalists will never again forget that 'Etymology' is the study of words!!!
The local knowledge rounds in particular proved a big hit with the large crowd. Thanks again to our hosts the Davis family, and also to all those who sponsored prizes and helped out on the night!!!
Positive Ageing Evening in Oxfield
The Drumcliffe Foróige club is one of 420 in operation all over Ireland. These clubs are purposely structured youth development groups made up of young people from the local community. They enable young people to experience democracy by electing their own club committee and managing and operating the club in co-operation with adult leaders. Foróige clubs normally consist of less than 30 young people, aged 12-18 years, and voluntary adult leaders, in a ratio of approximately 10 to 1.
The purpose of Foróige is to enable young people to involve themselves consciously and actively in their own development and in the development of society. This purpose challenges and supports young people to involve themselves in
- Developing their character and talents
- Thinking for themselves, reflecting on their actions and taking responsibility
- Having fun and making friends
- Building positive and helpful relationships
- Acquiring knowledge and skills for life
- Improving the community

Carney 10k Road Race
A huge turnout of 237 runners, over 50 walkers, and a battalion of young kids braved the elements to take part in the Carney 10k road race and kids fun run. This 10k event is now a firm fixture in Sligo's racing calendar. Alan McGuire (pictured) crossed the line first in a time of 34.52. Well done to the organising committee and to all the volunteers for making this event one of the best organised road races in the County.
