Visit from Scoil Cholmcille Glengad

The playground at Muff Community Park was very pleased to have the children of Scoil Cholmcille, Glengad's Junior Infants visit the park today.

The pupils were returning from their swimming class when, due to the gorgeous weather, the kind teachers and staff decided to make a detour to the children's playground here in Muff.

The children had a great time exploring all of the play equipment on offer, and the friendly staff even got to take a well-earned break and bask in the glorious sunshine.

Muff Community Park 5K Fun Run/Walk

Saturday 26th April saw the highly anticipated Muff Community Park 5k Fun Run/Walk take place in the village. The event was organised by Muff Community Development and was sponsored by Zest Fitness Studio, Muff.

Run under the expert eyes of the Inishowen Athletics Club, the Muff Community Park 5k Fun Run/Walk and mile-long Juvenile race witnessed 163 people from across the peninsula and further afield take part to support the community park in its fundraising effort. The atmosphere during the event was fantastic, expert runners ran shoulder to shoulder with walkers, children in strollers, fun runners and people taking part in their first ‘Couch to 5k’.

After the event, everyone was on a high after completing the run and helped themselves to delicious tray bakes and sandwiches kindly donated by members of the public, and commented that the Muff 5k should become a bi-annual event. Muff Community Development would like to thank its committee, staff and volunteers for their hard work and supplying of refreshments, but most importantly to the people who took part to support Muff Community Park.

Muff Community Park Tree-Planting Ceremony

The pupils of Mrs Smith's 6th class in Scoil Naomh Bríd, Muff were recently invited to attend a tree planting ceremony at Muff Community Park. The children were joined by Muff Community Development Chairman, Bernard Breslin, Vice-Chair Bridget McCallion, Committee member Willie Doherty and Inishowen Environmental Group's Dessie Mc Callion.

The 6th class students were chosen because they would soon be leaving for secondary level education and this invitaion was seen to be their crossing into young adulthood. The trees, some of which were kindly donated by Cycle Inishowen as part of their carbon-footprint eliminating campaign, included Beach, Alder, Oak, Aspen, Rowan and have been labelled so the children can monitor progress in the future years.

Halloween Spooky Park Fundraiser 2013

On Halloween evening, October 31st 2013, the newly opened play park in Ardmore Muff was transformed into a Spooky Park to raise much needed funds for Muff Community Park.

The evening kicked off at 4pm and thankfully the rainclouds kept at bay for the entirety of the event, with grownups and children eagerly waiting to venture into the unknown from the get-go.

Kids were entertained with traditional Halloween games such as bobbing for apples and testing their skill at taking bites out of hanging apples, pass the pumpkin pail, goblins were tackled by feeding them pumpkins in a game of throw, with the braver plunging their hands into unknown goo for a lucky dip.

Tea and coffee was on offer along with delicious hot soup to warm the bones, and ghoulish treats available in the tuck shop.

As the evening grew darker and the children played louder, the adults donated generously to the invaluable asset that is the children’s play park.

Eventually the Spooky Park fundraiser came to a close with those in attendance leaving entertained and satisfied for contributing to the Muff Community Park fund.

Many thanks to Muff Community Development for working hard and hosting the event, to the volunteers who helped out on the day, Muff Youth Club, St. Mary’s Brigini’s, Scoil Naomh Bríd and Quigley’s Point Community Playgroup for supplying handmade decorations and finally to those who came and supported the completion of Muff Community Park.

Website Launch Success

Friday 16th November 2012 marked another milestone in community development  for Muff and surrounds with the launch of a new community website - www.muffcommunityforum.ie by Muff Community Development Co-op (MCD)

The aim of the website, funded by Border Villages Social Intergration Project is to further strengthen the network of community organisations active in the Muff area.

Muff Community Development was delighted to welcome representatives from the affiliated groups as well as members of the public to St. Mary’s Community Hall, Muff to be the first to view the new website. There was also an opportunity to view the potential Children’s Play Park designs, and to meet the ‘Muffometer’. The 'Muffometer' will record community contributions towards of target of €30,000 for the Community Park Development Fund. Raised to date is €12.500.

MCD were delighted to receive Play Park Equipment Sponsorship from the following generous donors:

Micheal and Bobby Conn €300, Colm McKenna €1000, Muff Festival €2000, Reddins Coaches €200, The Squealin' Pig €200, Mc Gonigles Maxol €200.
