November 8, 2018

Good Luck Girls.

This week we join with the Camogie and Ladies Football Club and all the parish in extending best wishes to the three girls involved with Cork on Sunday. As the Senior Cork Ladies Football team go in search of another All Ireland title we are honoured to have Eleanor Ahern, Grace Kearney and Jennifer Barry representing the club and parish. We wish the girls all the very best for a great day. Safe travelling to the many supporters travelling up to Croke Park for the game. Kerry are the opposition and though Cork are favourites the Kingdom girls can be relied upon to provide tough opposition on the day.
