Well done to all the Sligo Nipper competitors who competed at the Regional competition on Saturday in Achill.

We had a great turnout with 72 nippers competing on the day, so thanks to everyone for making the journey to Achill. Thanks to all the parents who volunteered to help out and to all our coaches who assisted with the event, without volunteers on the day the event wouldn’t be possible.
