Best Wishes for the Christmas and the New Year – On behalf of our Chairman Andrew Rittweger, we wish all our members our friends and the entire community a Happy, Holy and Peaceful Christmas. As we approach the end of another year, we wish to thank all of the volunteers who toil endlessly to help make our great club work. We don’t always get the results on the playing fields that we crave and we will constantly strive to do better. Nevertheless, we must remain proud of our status as a welcoming community organisation that offers a hugely positive and safe experience to the young (and not so young) people of our parish.
St Stephens Day Married versus Singles Hurling – Our annual Married V Singles hurling match takes place on St. Stephens Day at 12. This is a great morning’s fun and all hurlers past and present are invited to come along.
