Hannah has been selected as the club’s senior member of the year as she is a brilliant member who always has the club’s best interests at heart. She has held many positions within the club and will be stepping into secretary in the new young farmers’ year. Hannah throws herself into all aspects of the YFCU at club, county and Northern Ireland level, from helping out or taking part in events, competing in all competitions and representing Kilraughts YFC and YFCU in Canada on her international exchange.
