Thanks to Club volunteer Patrick Higgins, of ploughing championship fame, who takes care of our sand pitch in Carnaun which is used for training by the Club's Juveniles and Adults when grass pitches are unplayable.

No matches or training in the immediate future, but the Club will be ready when we get the go-ahead thanks to Tommy Whelan and our local community employment scheme. The  pitches in Raheen and Carnaun are being kept in prime condition.

Ni bfeicimid a leithead ann aris. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam dhilis. May he rest in peace.
