The Sports Association Newry, Down and South Armagh are launching the Slieve Gullion Sports Forum later this month in Mullaghbawn.

The Forum will be officially launched on Monday 16 October at 7.15pm in Mullaghbawn Community Centre, Tullymacreeve Road, Glebe, Mullaghbawn.

The main purpose of Sports Association Newry, Down and South Armagh is to promote the development of sports by providing community sports clubs with funding opportunities. Community sports clubs will be encouraged to seek independent accreditation for their club while aiming to provide or secure the provision of educational, training and recreational programmes.

SANDSA will also work towards advancing the physical education of our citizens throughout South Armagh, especially amongst young people while also raising awareness among the general public about the opportunities for improving their quality of life and reducing health inequalities through a range of programmes and services.

Membership of the SANDSA will be open to any community based amateur sports club who is registered with their governing body.

To gauge numbers please rsvp  before the 11th October 2017 to  Edel O’Neill, Chair SANDSA Slieve Gullion Sports Forum to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
