Get Well Soon
Like all GAA clubs ours is one where we depend heavily on the volunteer spirit of our our underage coaches to keep our Juvenile section alive and in turn to ensure that we have players coming through to keep our adult teams competitive. For a number of years now Benny Flynn has given selflessly of his time to our Juvenile Section and all of us in the club would like to wish Benny a speedy recovery from his recent operation and hope that it won’t be too long before we see him coaching our underage teams again.
This Sunday our Club Bingo will return to the CBS Hall at 8:30 pm where the jackpot is €1000.
