Trillick YFC – 500 miles for 50 years

2014 is Trillick YFC’s 50th anniversary.  The club is one of the best-ran YFC clubs in the county and a regular award-winner.  It provides an invaluable community resource for our young people.  Pictured below are some of the Trillick YFC members who took part in a ‘500 miles for 50 years’ sponsored cycle on Saturday to raise funds for the Club:

The Club wishes to thank all who took part, those who provided sponsorship and Caldwell Cycles Omagh who very kindly provided the use of some high-tech cycles on the day.

Fed up with banks and credit cards?

As banks lurch from one crisis to another, and as they continue to abandon local villages, it’s worth recalling that Trillick is well served by nearby Irvinestown’s thriving Credit Union at Mill Street, Irvinestown.

You may just wish to find a secure place to start or to put some savings.  If you need a few extra pounds for a holiday, car, your child’s education etc, and you are unimpressed with the terms and interest charged by banks and credit cards, why not call John Lynch, Office Manager at Irvinestown Credit Union, on 028.6862.1255 for a quote.

See also the great shot of the Barr Church on the photos page.  Any historic ones of characters and scenes from in and around Trillick you’d be happy to have copied greatly appreciated; give us a shout.

Already, some Trillick people abroad getting in touch, most recently from Trillick man Paul Tunney, now living and working in Geneva.  As soon as we have a few more names and locations, we’ll show the country locations on an interactive map.  Again, if you know of any emigrants, send a link or tweet to them; thanks.
