Camogie club hosts memorial event for Stephen Dunican in Abbeyleix
By Conor Ganly

St. Lazarians Camogie Club is hosting a Stephen Dunican Memorial Evening to one of their founding members and hardest working coahces.

Stephen, who died in April 2016, was part of the team that formed this camogie club in 2013. The Laois County Council Firefighter was very proactive in developing the club. Stephen coached the U10 in 2013 & the U12's in 2014 & 2015.

It is fitting so that matches are the centrepiece of the event which takes place on Thursday September 1 in Fr. Breen Park, Abbeyleix starting at 6.15pm.

The U8 & U10's play Portlaoise at 6.15pm, U12's play Clough/Ballacolla at 7pm and to end off the evening the U14's mixed with coaches & 'Hurl with Me' parents in what is sure to be an entertaining match at 7.45pm.

Paul O'Shea, Darragh Dunne, Anthony Coffey, Pat Gaughan, Lorcan Mahony, Mog Fitzpatrick, Ned O'Keeffe, Yvonne Shanahan, Rosie Dunne, Mary Palmer, Orla Dwyer, Chris Doyle and Tom Finlay, to name just a few, will be among those togging out for the evening.

Follow them on Facebook at St. Lazarians Camogie Abbeyleix for full details.

There will be a €2 entrance fee with tea/coffee and home baked goodies on sale with all proceeds to the Irish Cancer Society night nursing fund.

Everyone is welcome to attend to raise funds for the worthy cause and to remember Stephen.
