Easter Camp Success.
Easter Camp 2017 proved to be a big hit with the girls and boys who attended in large numbers over the course of the week. The good weather certainly played it’s part as did the enthusiastic coaches who entertained the gang. Thanks to Paddy Bond for coordinating the camp and making making sure things ran smoothly. See you all in the summer !!
League Final.
Galway were deserving winners last Sunday in Limerick over Tipperary, however the spirits of the juveniles who travelled remained undiminished largely in part to the consumption of vast amounts of sugary goods !. Many thanks to the mentors and parents who brought the kids to the game. Beidh lá eile ag an bpaorach.
Anti-Social Behaviour.
The last number of weeks has seen a steady rise of incursions by youthful gangs trespassing into the Sportsfield grounds who are then engaging in alcohol fuelled theatrics causing broken glass to be strewn both stands. The Gardai are aware of such incidents and we call on the public to notify the authorities if such behaviour is witnessed in future.
