Glenswilly GAA club notes for April 28th.

Glenswilly 5K

The annual Glenswilly GAA 5K will take place on Tuesday, June 23rd at 7.30pm.

The annual fun run has been a huge success since it was launched.

Again the club is hoping for a large numbers on the night and hopefully even some good weather!

A meeting of club members and volunteers will be held in the coming weeks to ensure that all goes to plan.

This is a chipped time race for the serious runner but also a fun night out for families.

A date for these meetings will be included in the notes and also on the club’s Facebook page.

There will be the famous Glenswilly refreshments afterwards, however!
