Bon Voyage: We wish to say bon voyage to Louise Hickey who has packed her bags for Australia.

Have a wonderful time Louise. We are missing you already!

Community Games: Hard luck to our Community Games team who were beaten by a last second goal in the Munster final last weekend in Tralee by Ogonnelloe of Clare. The girls and their hard-working mentors put in a huge effort and they did the club proud with their displays on the playing fields. Best wishes to Ogonnelloe in the All-Ireland series.
