The Greencastle St Patrick’s club in Co. Tyrone recently hosted their annual vintage show – an excellent event which attracts a large crowd from the local community and beyond.

In addition, the attendees were provided with information from the local health improvement department on nutrition, alcohol misuse and positive mental health.
