Scor    Best of luck to our Scor na nOg group heading for the Munster Finals in Ovens on Sunday the 8th January.

One Wedding & a Funeral       Tickets for One Wedding and a Funeral are going fast so get to the club bar and purchase before they sell out! You definitely don’t want to miss this really hilarious comedy taking place in the club on the 14th January!!
