Clubcall - all the latest news from clubs across Ulster

Kildress Gael Barry Conway is currently on day seven - the Drumsurn-to-Castlerock leg - of his gruelling 10-day, 200-mile trek across Ulster’s Appalachian Trail. Barry’s unique trek is a fundraiser for Kildress Wolfe Tones’ planned new community hub, ‘Ionad Pobail Chill Dreasa’, a hugely ambitious project which will anchor rural Kildress for most of the rest of this century. The community hub building will contain changing and personal care facilities, multi-use community hall, gym/physical fitness/multi-activity area, boxing facilities, culture and meeting/community interaction space, reception area and basic catering/café provision. It is likely to come with a £1m price tag. Barry is following the full route of Ulster’s Appalachian Trail from Donegal to Larne, passing through counties Donegal, Tyrone, Derry and Antrim. The original Appalachian Trail runs through 14 States in the USA and its ‘Ulster Chapter’ was set up here in 2011. Barry is pictured alongside colleague Poilín Quinn in Ardara, Co Donegal last Friday. You can support Barry through ‘Just Giving’ at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/kildress-wolfetones-1?utm_id=2&utm_term=Bp2pdDpPD
