Two super performances in Croke Park on Sunday against the Dubs have us all dreaming again! Well done to Jim, Declan and all the players on both squads for setting up a massive double header with the Kingdom on September 21st.
At this stage we are asking for adult members only to apply for tickets and to have their application to Elaina by text only to 087-290 1541 by 5pm this coming Monday, September 8th. If you would prefer to apply for a ticket for Hill 16, please state that in your text (they are approx. half the price of a seated ticket). At the time of writing this we still don’t know what the county or club allocation is going to be and if and when we have tickets available for Juveniles to apply for (they must pay full prices too) it will be announced on the club Facebook page and via e-mail.
This Saturday, September 6th we will host the Ulster Óg Sport Gael Finals beginning at 10am. It is the first time we will host the event after last year’s team claimed the crown in Derry. It is a very prestigious event and we still need volunteers to help on the day. Please text Paul McGovern if you can help out in any way on 086-811 4151.
