Club Notes

January 9, 2018

Athbhliain faoi shéan is faoi mhaise daoibh go léir – The festive season is over and teams are beginning to look ahead. We wish all teams the very best of luck and please remember that if you always try your best, you won’t ever be criticised.

Recent Death – We extend our deepest sympathy to Gerry Scanlon and his family on the death of Connie. Gerry and Connie have been loyal supporters of the Club for many years. May Connie’s Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.

Dublin Football and Hurling – Both Shane Carthy and Cian Hendricken saw competitive action over the last few weeks. Shane was involved with Dublin in their O’Byrne cup campaign captaining the team against Offaly. Cian played for the hurlers in the Walsh cup and they have qualified for the semi-final against Wexford in Parnell Park next Sunday. See https://www.sportsjoe.ie/gaa/5-young-hurlers-showing-theyre-made-walsh-cup-munster-league-146518?utm_content=buffered560&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=bufferwhich mentions Cian as one of five young hurlers that have shown what they are made of in recent inter-county matches.

Mentors and Helpers Night – Saturday 27 January– 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 any way in the running of 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, finger food plus some “light refreshments on the house”.

Exercise Sessions every Wednesday and Friday Evening – Grace Keane has taken over the Wednesday and Friday evening exercise sessions from Richard Murphy. The sessions are on every Wednesday and Friday evening in the Club starting at 7 pm. The hour long exercise sessions will be a mix of Boxercise, circuits and a new class called RT24. RT24 is 24 minutes of relentless training either HIIT or else using weights. The plan is for participants to have fun while improving their fitness and burning fat. The exercise sessions are also suitable for beginners or those who have fallen off the fitness wagon!

The exercise sessions cost €40 for 6 sessions or €8 per session. Please text Michael Hannon on 087 1205440 to be included in the Club’s Special WhatsApp Group for the exercise sessions.
