Hunt for the Hunk – County Final

The hunt for the hunk county final takes place this Saturday night 11th December in the Comet Bar, Castleblayney. We are looking for as many Rock supporters to travel and support Cathal “The Rocker” Sheridan and his escorts Manta & Claire in their bid to win the coveted county title. I understand a bus has been organized so there are no excuses! Best of luck Cathal.
