We are still collecting memorabilia to be included in our book to celebrate this major anniversary. We would like everyone who has connections with the club who has any old photos that they would like to have included to get in contact with us. We will return all photos once we copy them. They don’t have to be team photos, family photos of players of times gone by would be very welcome. Any newspaper clippings, medals or old programmes etc would also be greatly appreciated. The committee headed up by chairman Eamon Mulhall have been very busy collecting information so far and would not wish to leave anyone out. You can message the club on FB or contact Eamon directly.
