Our club caters for both boys and girls from (under 6 to 12’s) and boys only thereafter from under 14 to senior men. There is also a girl’s Gaelic football club-(Milltown Listry) in the community.

This open day will be an ideal opportunity for new families or individuals who have joined our community to get to know each other in a fun and relaxed environment. Light refreshments will be served for children and adults throughout the day.
