There was a good attendance at the players meeting on Friday to meet with the new management team of Paul Whelan and Brendan Barnes. We are looking forward to the year ahead with a lot of optimism. Best of luck to the lads. On a sad note we send our condolences to the Fanning family and extended families on the sudden death of Mary Fanning.


2017 got off to a great start with over 100 children at athletics and will continue every Monday preparing for track and field, cross county and the Marathon.

Tag Rugby

U-11 and U-14 tag rugby was well supported with over the amount to make up the two teams for county finals in February and thanks as always to Barney for coaching.

Have you got talent?? Singing. Dancing. Play an instrument. Say a poem. I have been approached by some of our children to enter various talent disciplines and if we got more than two interested in each category of U 12 and U 16 age groups we can hold an area final.
Please get in touch with me Fiona Shannon 087 2218366. We would love to have a great talent show!
