FIELD DAY

Thanks to all who supported and helped run our Field Day in Ballypickas on Sunday July 21 in the GAA grounds. A great day was finished off with a tournament final between Shanahoe and Ballypickas dedicated to the memory of Ned O’Dea. Congratulations to Shanahoe who were the victors on the day.

Highlights of the day included the U8, U10 and U12 hurling blitz with teams from Clonad, Naomh Eamonn and Ballypickas, races for kids and mammies and a daddies, and the gunging of Liam Lalor. The winners of the skill competition were MJ Lalor (adult) and Enda McWey (U16). A special thank you to all the non-members who donated their time and skills.
