Camogie Club Notes

Intermediate: Sunday last was another historic day in our history as for the very first time we played a competitive game at the intermediate grade when Newport visited MacDonagh Park for the opening round of the league. Under the management of Paul Henry, Bertie Sherlock and Bob O Brien the girls produced a magnificent performance to defeat their opponents and as it was Newport’s second loss, the win guarantees us a semi final spot. We play Drom and Inch in our next game. Please see the website for details of this game. Well done to all involved.

Flag Day: Last weekend we had our annual flag collection and we wish to thank all who so generously donated, all the collectors and the businesses who kindly allowed us to collect outside their premises. Your kindness is very much appreciated.

Clothes Collection: We are holding a clothes collection on Saturday April 9th between 10am and 12am in MacDonagh Park. Please bring along all your unwanted clothes, bed linen, curtains, shoes etc to help us raise some badly needed funds. If you cannot make it on the day please contact a committee member who will be delighted to collect your bags prior to the collection.
