Thank You to All our Volunteers – As we approach the end of another busy year on and off the pitch, we would like to thank all the volunteers who help out in the running of any aspect of the Club. Without volunteers we could not function as a Club. We will be having a Volunteer Appreciation Night for all Mentors, Groundforce, Committee Members and all other Volunteers who help out in the Club on Saturday 27 January from 9:00 pm until late. There will be live music with Brendan Finglas https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/mystery-train/358067626?i=358067744 and finger food plus the usual “light refreshments”.
2018 Membership Early Bird Incentive– Get 10% Back on Your Club Loyalty Card –There is an early bird incentive for members who pay their 2018 membership in full before the end of January 2018. Such members will receive an extra Credit on their Club Loyalty Card equal to 10% of the total amount paid for membership. For example, if you are paying for Family Membership (2 Players) of €270 you will receive an extra credit of €27 on your Club Loyalty Card (i.e. a credit of €77.00 rather than the normal €50.00).
