Club Notes 7th February

Annual Social Night

Go to your calendar right now folks and make a note: Save the date Friday 24th February because the biggest event of the year so far, our annual social and presentation night, will be held in St. Mary’s Hall. This is always a very enjoyable occasion and this year’s social night will once again be something special as we honour the latest inductee into our Hall of Fame. Furthermore, medals will be presented to our victorious minor team that won the division two league title and presentations will also be made to our senior, reserve and minor player of the year. So folks, make sure you don’t miss out on an exquisite buffet feast while dancing the night away to some very danceable music of the 60’s, 70’s and the 80’s! Tickets will be on sale shortly and we look forward to your support.
