Club Notes 12 March


The countdown to the All-Ireland Club Final is almost over. We take on Nemo Rangers of Cork at 2.00 pm in Croke Park on Saturday (St Patrick’s Day). Everyone in the parish sends their best wishes to the players and the management team as they put their final preparations in place for the final. We have no doubt that all the hard work, dedication and commitment displayed by the entire panel will ensure that we bring the Andy Merrigan Cup to our parish for the third time.
We wish a safe journey to our many supporters travelling to the game.

Many thanks to all who supported our fundraising drive over the last few weeks. A special thanks goes to the ticket sellers who braved inclement weather while calling to homes. We also thank our many sponsors whose support will be acknowledged at a later date.
