Our lads trailed by 1-03 to 0-02 after the first quarter but battled back thanks to an Adam Lenihan goal to leave one between the sides at half time, Cordal leading 1-04 to 1-03.

The monies received is funnelled towards the maintenance of facilities, playing equipment, affiliation fees, insurance, utility bills, team preparation and other administrative costs.

Why has the membership price increased?

Our membership rates have not increased in a couple of years, while in the interim, the running costs of the club have increased significantly on items like utility costs, affiliation and registration fees, referee fees, team preparation, equipment, and insurance, as part of the day-to-day running costs of the club. We are also conscious that further costs increases are extremely likely in 2022.


In addition, our club developments at Paddy Burke Memorial Park are continuing and we want to ensure as much of our fundraising activities goes towards the development rather than the day-to-day costs of running the club.
