The club would like to wish everyone a happy new year, we would also like to wish all our players involved in county teams the best of luck. The club will be selling the annual all county board tickets in the next few weeks. This is a fundraiser which provides nearly a third of the clubs income and we are always blessed with the generosity and loyalty of villagers subscribing to the draw. With the recent purchase of land to further develop our facilities we encourage you to subscribe to the draw again and support your local club.
Thank you very much to all who supported our annual Christmas hamper draw, funds will be used for the upkeep of the village.
The club will be meeting back shortly and plan ahead events for the new year.
Thanks to all who braved the elements last New Year’s Day for the annual walk in aid of the Irish Wheelchair Association. It was led out by international rugby star and Laois woman Allison Miller.
