Thank You

Both the Senior and Juvenile Committees would like to extend sincere thanks to all of those who helped in both the organisation and running of the recent Feile bake sale held at the club. It was a great success and a credit to all those involved. It wouldn’t have been possible without all of the baked goods donated on the day and we would also like to extent our thanks for those. We also had two very successful bagpacking days at the Horan Centre Dunnes Stores. Thanks to Dunnes for having us and thanks to all of the girls and boys who manned the slots and also to the adults who supervised. Well done to all.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to Groundsman, Edmond Quirke and Senior Manager, Morgan Nix, who both have birthdays this week.
