Football (This is for W/Ending 16th March)Seniors played out a draw after extra time against Athy in the Aldridge Cup Final.

Ladies Football Our U/12 girls played out a draw with Eadestown which was a very exciting game with plenty of end to end scoring.

Updating of E-mails As PRO of the club it is my responsibility to ensure as many members as is possible is getting Info on what is happening in the club.

If you are one of the members in this situation please contact me Seamus McGann on 087/2039726 or so we can add you to the list. One of the main Club Info E-mails is sent out on Tuesday Mornings between 10 and 12 with the lotto results so if your not receiving this your not on the list.

Membership 2014 Membership is now been collected for 2014. The membership rates remain the same with the exception of the removal of the registration levy applied to female playing members. If you wish to pay you can do so by calling to the Club any Monday or Friday between 8pm and 9.30pm. Also on Saturday from 11am to 1pm.
