This will be an U21 tournament and the participating clubs will be Kilmacud Crokes, Ahane, Clooney Quinn and Nenagh Éire Óg. Games will start at 12pm with each team playing 3 games.

Work continues on the new development with the laying out of the new field underway. A big few weeks now lie ahead as we reach the final stages of this phase of the project - drainage systems will be prepared and then levelling out with topsoil and sand. The costs continue to be a major part of this and so we are continuing to seek funding for this phase of the project. Our membership packages are still open and we thank everyone who has contributed to this to date. If you would like to avail of any of these packages, please contact any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically - bank details available from Anne Kennedy & John Tooher. Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account.
This week's lotto Jackpot was €4,000. Our new lotto boxes are now located in the following businesses in the town - The Hi-B, JKC, Centra, Rockies, Cleary’s Daybreak & Andy’s. You can buy your lotto tickets here each week and they will be included in the next lotto draw. So please keep an eye out for our new lotto 'boxes' in these premises and please continue to support our lotto. You can also continue to play our lotto online or contact any Committee member. Thank you for your continued support of our lotto.
The club is planning to start a weekly bingo night in the complex in the coming weeks. This will take place on Sunday nights and we are looking for volunteers to help run this – please contact Matt Lillis or Anne Kennedy if you are available to give a hand on Sunday nights.
