The Club Dinner Dance is on this Friday and takes place in The Bailie Hotel. A few tickets are left and are available from Pat Faulkner, Kevin Sheils and all committee members. This promises to be a great night to mark the Seniors’ championship success. 

Remember though, this function is open to members and non-members alike.  The great atmosphere around the town last September & October, notably the day & night of the Championship victory was created by the whole community and we would encourage everyone who delighted in this success to try and make the night if at all possible.

A bus will make a couple of runs over and back to Bailieboro on the night, with the first run leaving Main St at 7.30 pm.


Ahead of the Dinner Dance, the club’s ambitious five year strategic plan will be launched. This plan will be the framework for how the club is run at all levels over the next five years and copies of the plan will be available from the committee and will also be available to view/download from the club website.

Special guests in attendance at the launch include Ulster Council President, Aogan Ó Fearghail, and County Board Chairman, Tom O’Reilly.

2011 club membership is due again and can be paid in Pat Faulkner’s or M&F’s shops, or indeed to any committee member.  Membership remains the same at €50 for players (€30 for Students/Unemployed) and €20 for Juvenile or Non-Players.

Membership can also be paid to your various team managers or captains and can also be paid online via for those that are away from the town. 
We cannot stress how important membership is to the club’s finances and it is imperative that all club members pay same over the next month or so to ensure the club can continue to be properly run. 
As an incentive to supporters to join the club, fully paid up members of the club can avail of discounts into home matches and on upcoming club merchandise. You will also receive complimentary refreshments after home games!! Sure, you’d be mad not to join…
