Members of the club also enjoyed a trip to the transport museum in Kilgarvan in November and this turned out to be a great success and more day trips are planned for 2015.  The Coachford Autumn Festival in 2014 was the club’s most successful one and the members managed to raise over €8,500 for charity. The Chairman of the club, Tadgh Murphy said “ We’ve had a great year, a very enjoyable year and one full of achievements. We are already beginning to plan for this year’s Festival on August 14th 15, and 16th . The club is looking for new members to get involved in helping to plan for and run this year’s Coachford Autumn Festival. The club has donated over €30,000 to charities and worthy causes over the last four years. If you would like to do something worthwhile in 2015 and at the same time have a lot of fun, meet new people and help to make the festival even better then come along on Thursday. Don’t worry you won’t be landed with any big job unless of course you want one!!”
