Ladies Football and Camogie U8 and U10 teams are making great strides in co-ordinating and facilitating both codes for the young girls on Saturday mornings. The mentors are coaching BOTH Camogie and Ladies Football to their teams at extended training sessions and feedback from juveniles, parents and mentors has been very complimentary and positive, as the objective is to increase and maintain numbers playing in the club after the OGRA.

Fixtures now getting back into full swing, visit club website for LIVE fixtures feeds for all codes and age groups.

Astro pitch will remain locked at weekends until further notice. Keys are only available to mentors who will stay and supervise pitch use by juveniles. Contact Tommy Hogan for keys.

All Ireland Final weekend club activities include a Saturday night Party and Trad session in the Lounge with LIVE MUSIC and CRAIC. With the unprecedented demand for tickets, the club will not be able to cater for majority of applications and has decided to cater for members, families and children by hiring in a Big Screen for the Big Matches on  Sunday 18th - Big Screen in hall for families (including children) 1pm-8.00pm. The hall will close from 8-8:30pm to allow children exit the premises and then Re-opens for Party time 9.00pm with live Sunday Game and food available. Live music until late. Admission will be by ticket only €5 each. Further details see club events or click here ...
