The AGM of our club will be on this Friday January 20th 2017, at 7.30, in The Clubhouse. It will also incorporate the Coiste na nOg AGM. Please note that there are a number of positions in which people are not seeking re-election.

We are continually seeking volunteers to assist us in the running and management of our ever expanding club.
Getting involved in your local GAA Club is a wonderful way to form new friendships- as well as giving opportunities for skills and expertise to be shared -for the benefit of all in our community.

What a fantastic evening was had at our medal presentation ceremony in the Nagle Rice Community Centre last evening. Our special guests- David Moran and Tommy Walsh delighted the audience young and old with their presence.

David addressed the young footballers encouraging them to ‘stick together and keep it going’
He recalled the many great times he has had through football with his club – training sessions, playing games and travelling to and from games etc.

Tommy and David are both great ambassadors for ‘sticking with it’. Both have been very unfortunate with injuries but their resilience determination and dedication has ensured that they continue to play this great game.

After the medal presentation, the boys posed for photographs and signed autographs for their many excited fans.

We sincerely appreciate David and Tommy taking time out of their extremely busy schedule to join us. We also commend all the footballers for the respect they showed to our guests. You are a credit to yourselves, your parents/guardians and your mentors.

A big THANK YOU to all the wonderful ladies in our club for their tremendous catering at our medal ceremony last evening.
