Currently down for 12 noon, but that may change…..

This year’s AGM takes place in the Club Pavillion at 8.30pm on Tuesday. This section of the club has grown massively in the past few years under the guidance of Pat Farrelly. We would ask anyone with an interest in the ladies section, or whose daughter either plays/trains with the one of the clubs underage teams, or indeed who’s daughter is interested in starting to play, to please attend.

Commiserations to the Question Time team of Jim McGovern, Joe McCarthy and John Forkan, who failed to trouble the County Champions in the Scór County Finals in Mullahoran on Friday night. However, given that Cornafean didn’t get a single question wrong, well it’s fair to say that no one troubled them, not even the quizmaster! Well done again to the lads on again reaching the final and continuing to mark the club’s attempts to maintain participation in the Scór events.
