A reminder that the club and the Colmcille branch of St. Christopher’s are holding a 13K Lake View walk on April 30th. This is for a very worthy cause and we encourage all to participate. There will be alternative routes to accommodate all fitness levels. Cost of entry is €10 for adults and €5 for U16s. To register contact John Reilly at

On Saturday 16th a Mr.  & Mrs Event will take place in Murtagh’s as part of the fundraising drive. This promises to be a great night’s entertainment and no doubt there will be more than a few revelations. There will be some very special guests on the night. It will all kick off around 9.30pm so be sure to be there early. All support will be greatly appreciated.

A sponsored cycle from Croke Park to Colmcille will take place on June 25th. More details and sponsorship cards can be obtained by contacting Joe Mulligan on 0868222150 or Shane McGauran on 087 9254868.
