A great day at the Big Connor Contest

Saturday 9th February 2019

In the third annual Big Connor Contest, teams from across Connor Diocese came to St Paul’s, Lisburn, on Saturday, 9th February 2019 to compete for the Big Connor Contest Shield.

The teams participated in volleyball, sock football, blatterball, tug of war and 4 square throughout the day. With young people from seven parishes represented, it made for a competitive event.

The leaders challenged the clergy to see who would come out on top in tug of war! We won’t report the result but there was a slight numerical bias in favour of the leaders!

After a day of tough competition, the winners of the Big Connor Contest Shield were the host team, St Paul’s, Lisburn.

Christina Baillie, Diocesan Youth Officer said: “Thank you to all the young people and leaders who came along to take part in the event. A huge thank you to St Paul’s Parish for hosting us for the day. Thanks to all the Youth Council members who planned and led the day, making it such a great success.”
Christina added: “It was fantastic seeing groups who were coming along for their first diocesan event, as well as groups who attend regularly, getting to compete against each other.”
