Congratulations to Kathleen Gannon who won €333 in our recent 50/50 draw on Feb 21st. This weekly draw is a very important revenue stream for our club, thanks to all who support.

Our senior team had their first fitness test of the season last Thursday night, some impressive results were recorded… while some fellas may have to stay away from the snack press for a few weeks… there is huge optimism amongst the group that this is the year to bring home Owen B for the 21st time!
Brian Henry and Pat Lucey will lead our Juniors this year… they are always on the lookout for new players so if you fancy yourself as a high energy athlete with an eye for a score and capable of keeping up with the likes of Enda McGoey, Brendan Devane, Barry Brennan and David Curran please reach out to Brian Henry on 0872874077.
Our Mothers and Others team train at 8:30pm on Mondays, U14 girls 10am Saturdays and Senior girls at 10am Sunday. All are welcome
