54 people (28 members) from North Kildare (Leixlip) Arch Club went to Salou in Spain. We spent 7 days (18th - 25th September) soaking up the sun and having the 'craic'. A boat trip with BeyondSalou.com, Porta Ventura- aqautic park and rollercoasters and the beautiful city of Barcelona kept us very busy. A superb time was had by all. Everyone was asking to come back again next year- need I say any more :)

Welcome 'Meeting Place' (Youth) Arch Club.

The Meeting Place club originally came together to support teenagers with aspergers and other related conditions under this spectrum. (ADD.ADHD, DYSPRAXIA,  and other grey areas). "Our aim and hope is to provide individuals and families in the community with information and support around these conditions". Set up by a group of parents this club offers a social outlet to our "special youths" in the Finglas/Glasnevin area. Activities in the club are diverse and certain to hold a teenager's attention such as fencing, horse riding, and gardening (in their own allotment) to name but a few. Recently they were invited to meet President Michael D. Higgins in Áras an Uachtaráin. For more information

Welcome Little Seeds Arch Club

Little Seeds Arch Club is a junior club for 10 to 15 year olds and is based in Ongar Community Centre Clonee. The club came about when a group of parents got together and did some research with the sole aim of providing a social outlet for their special young adolescents, and others in their local community.

"Activities in the club will range from book nights, computers, bowling, movie nights, and self defence" says Rosaleen one of the parents involved.
