HAPPY NEW YEAR: to all our Members, Supporters and Readers for the coming twelve months.

FESTIVE SEASON ACTIVITY: A special thanks to everyone who organized and participated in the many celebrations that took place over the Christmas period. These included the gathering of a lot of our under 21 players who won our one and only U21 Co. Championship title in 2002.

Great to see so many players enjoying the special night. Go to our Club Website for a full and comprehensive report of the event by Adrienne McLoughlin, together with her usual array of outstanding photographs.

We also had the inaugural Celsius Christmas Cracker Classic which took place on the 27th December and of the course all those who celebrated on New Year’s Eve. Thanks to Kevin Healy and his Bar Staff and to all involved in the organizing and participation of the events.
