Update 24th December 2015

  • 'Married' v Singles, Sat 2nd Jan at 2pm in Club


Well, the parties are over and the preparation is well underway (we hope!).  Just a quick update on a few items as we get close to the Santa season!


Club Members Christmas drinks

On Thursday last Eric and Mark were the hosts for the final Members evening in the Clubhouse before Christmas.   As well as mulled wine and mince pies there were festive jumpers and seasonal music - thanks to the lads for looking after everyone so well.  The time given by all our volunteer bar staff is greatly appreciated.


 Bag Packing Fundraiser

A fantastic turnout for our bag packing fundraiser in Club sponsor Nolans' Supermarket yesterday (Tuesday 22nd December).   We were on the tills from 9am to around 8pm and got a great response from shoppers! In fact, Nolan's were so impressed and happy with our volunteers that they have booked us in for one of their precious Christmas days next year. Thanks to everyone who gave their time we have raised €1,875 for the Club during the day which is a fantastic result.  Well done to all our 'packers' - your time is much appreciated! 


Married v Singles, Sat 2nd Jan at 2pm in the Club

The Annual Married/Cohabiting v Singles (not married etc) takes place on Saturday 2nd January in Scoil Ui Chonaill from 2pm. It always delivers a game that is awful to watch but most enjoyable to play in. The married cohab selection beat the singles on penalties last year so I'm sure somebody somewhere wants revenge. Contact Ronan Murphy for more details!


Congratulations to Nicole Rock who will be part of the Dublin Junior Stars who play in the special games in DCU on 3rd Jan, starting at 11.30am


Special mention this week for all our Members and families who are overseas - hope you all have a great Christmas!
