"The Future is Bright" - Congratulations to the Minor Football Team who collected their League Medals.  Well done lads! The team is managed by John McGuirk and Tony Murnane.

We had a very busy Saturday morning in the Club.

The Nursery & Academy Xmas Party was a huge success. Storm Deirdre did not stop the kids from having a great morning with the main man Santa in attendance too. For more pics, click the link :

A Complimentary Christmas Coffee Shop was also held on Saturday Morning. A huge crowd turned up for a cuppa and some mince pies. There was live Christmas music on the morning courtesy of Margaret Findley, Fiona Dowling and Andrew McAllister.   The Saturday Morning Coffee shop is closed now until the new year.

The Coffee Shop is run on a voluntary basis by an amazing group of women. The Club would like to thank these women for all the effort they have put in throughout the year. It is very much appreciated and it is a fantastic meeting point for club members and parents on Saturday mornings for a chat.

The winners of the Coffee Shop raffle are : Andy Lynam - Golf Hamper, Mark Murray - Howards Hardware Voucher, Michelle Smyth, Greg Donnelly and Paul Lyons - a bottle of wine each.

The U8's boys had a great Christmas party at Bounce & Beyond.  A super group of boys.  Happy Christmas! For more pics click the link

GAA NATIONAL CLUB DRAW 2019 is now an annual event following its success over the past 5 years, in which over €6million has been raised by Clubs. The sole purpose of the draw is to assist Clubs to raise much needed funds to aid in the development and promotion of our games. This is an excellent opportunity for our club to raise up to €20,000. This year, all monies raised by the juvenile teams will be staying with that particular team and used for equipment for that individual team! All prizes provided by Ard Chomhairle.  Tickets available from the Club house or all Team Managers / Coaches.
