Our Senior Footballers lost to Kilmacanogue during the week. Our next game is against A.G.B in Arklow this week.
Saturday saw our third Run The Rock event take place. This event continues to grow year on year. Close on 200 runners took on the challenge. The Club would like to thank all those who helped in any way, stewarding, course preparation, registration, food preparation and water stations in order to make this day the resounding success it was. A special word of thanks to those juvenile players from the camogie, hurling and football who took part. This event has been the brainchild of Donal Linehan and his hardworking Committee – these people not alone organise this event but also participate in the run.

The First man home was Brian Caulfield and the First Lady was Aisling Kirwan. A full list of runners and their finishing time can be viewed in
