Our club extends sympathy to the Jones family, Kiltallagh on the recent death of Shirley Jones-grandmother to our underage player-Darragh Kelliher.

New Baby:

Congratulations to our senior player Paula Carroll and his wife Cora on the birth of their first baby- Lucia. Hope you have many wonderful times with her.

Our club secretary Mike will now have extra duties- grandad to baby Lucia!

Club registration is now due.

Under 6’s are free.

Juvenile/student and OAP are €30.

An adult is €50, couples are €80 and family membership is €100.

As you will agree, these are fantastic rates- for the juvenile/student/OAP – it works out at 58 cent per week, while a family membership (up to 2 adults and 4 children) works out at just under €2 per week.

And don’t forget that membership entitles you to free entry to all our home Co. League games – worth €30(on production of your membership card) as well as entry to the Munster Final ticket draw and that all important All Ireland ticket draw in September!

Membership also entitles all those aged 18 and over to vote at the AGM.

Certainly great value for money!
