Colmcille GFC Notes

November 8, 2018

The 12K Lake View Walk on 30th April as part of Operation Transformation, in association with the Colmcille Branch of St Christopher’s is nearly upon us. This is for a very worthy cause and we encourage all to participate. To facilitate the smooth running of the walk on the day and to get it going on time, a registration night will be held on Wednesday night at 9pm in McGee Park. We hope that as many of the intending participants as possible will pre-register. The cost of entry is €10 for adults and €5 for U-16s. We look forward to seeing you all there.

As part of Operation Transformation a cycle from Croke Park to Colmcille will take place on 25th June. The gang are well into their training and are completing some serious kilometres in preparation. Anyone interested in taking part can contact Joe Mulligan on 086 8222150 or Shane McGauran on 087 9254868.

As usual the Sunday morning walks continue at 8.30am from the Cross. Pilates classes also continue on Thursday evenings in the meeting room at McGee Park.
