The club has entered two competitions and it will also take part in the junior championship later in the season. We are asking every player past and present to contact Kevin Hanley or any of his team management or Chairman Liam or Secretary Cathal on his intention to turnout and create a wonderful spirit in the club. There are a lot of players that in recent time that have retired or have pulled away for one reason or the other and we would love to welcome them back for a bit of fun on the playing field.

Thank You
