Our Junior camogie girls had a good runout against Gortnahoe last week as they continue their championship preparations.
Off the playing pitches, our 2019 12 Days of Christmas Draw will launch in the coming weeks.
Unfortunately, we’ve some very disappointing news to report in relation to our our new clubhouse on Ballyrichard Road. After we went to the considerable expense of installing new windows in the new club house at Ballyrichard Road, somebody felt the need to smash one of them.
We will never understand the mentality of someone who harms their own town like that.
Great progress has taken place as we worked very hard to transform a once derelict area into a fantastic looking sporting arena which the youth of the town will enjoy and which you the general public contributed to.
The building is now a clubhouse and should be respected and that means it is no longer acceptable to use it as a ball wall or for anything else likely to cause damage. We call on all parents/guardians to inform their children of this. So please whoever is responsible STOP.
