TJ O'Neill (13) from Ballinamore Foróige has successfully reached the Regional Aldi Baking competition to be hosted in Sligo in July with his superb Lemon Drizzle Cake.
This is his next step to reaching the Semi Finals before attending the Final at this years’ ploughing championships to be held in Tullamore in September.
TJ will be one of six finalists who will need to bake again against finalists from North and South Donegal, Roscommon, and Sligo.
Ballinamore Foróige Club Leader, Siobhan Flanagan, had this to say: “Its been supper to watch TJ do so well not just locally but now off to represent himself and his club at a regional and national level.”
TJ who was delighted with the experience had this to say: “This has been a great experience and I have learned so much that I hope to bring back to the club.”
Ballinamore Foróige is no stranger to National Press and have been a real inspiration to members from clubs across Leitrim all thanks to the enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers and the young people.
