Winners in the Club Rossie Draw.

Well done to all involved great achievement.







 There was a great turn out at the annual Christmas table quiz last Thursday night in Carthy’s. A lot of craic was had by all at this very enjoyable event. Our quiz master Deckie Hoare did an excellent job to make it such an enjoyable night. The club would like to thank everyone who came along to the quiz, Paul Carthy for facilitating and all those who donated raffle prizes and the many people who helped out in any way on the night. Many thanks to Liam McNeill and our senior lads who organised the event.


Dunnes Bag Pack

A big thank you is due to all those involved in the bag packing in Dunnes Stores on both days. These activities help our club immensely so well done all, and thanks to all who donated some of their change!
