Well done to all our junior members who competed in the junior turkey tournament this year.

The winners were ronan Dwyer and Julie olden and runners up were Vaughan Ryan and ronan Coleman.


Thank you to our sponsors ‘Recharge Cartridges’ for sponsoring the turkeys and st michaels hoodies and to Thomas Creegan, ‘Dennys’who supplied the burgers and chips, much appreciated after battling in the challenging winter weather conditions.

Our junior Christmas party for our younger members was held in the rockies. Conor the clown kept everyone busy with fun and games and there was a surprise visit from the icecream van for a treat to end the party. Thank you Liz, Deirdre and Rosie.



We’re on holidays!!! Coaching will resume on Wednesday, January 6th which is the same day most of the schools are due back.

Don’t forget the kids are very welcome to use the club over the festive period & remember to play your Orange Ball Ladder games.

On behalf of John O’ Rourke & his team we would like to wish you a very Happy Christmas & thank you for your continued support throughout 2015.
