With the Covid-19 Level 5 restrictions still in place, all leagues are suspended but training continues in an outdoor environment for our underage sides. These are strange and challenging times for everyone but for now our younger players can continue outdoor training, keeping fit and healthy. We remind everyone of the importance of following all the health guidelines before, during and after training.

There was no winner of this week’s club’s lotto and the jackpot is now €2,150 with the next draw taking place on Saturday, November 21 in the clubhouse. The numbers drawn were 12, 15, 28 & 30.

Bryan Ringrose R.I.P.
All in the club were greatly saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Bryan Ringrose at such a young age. Bryan was a popular club member, a former junior player and also helped out with coaching some of our underage sides. He also played the social games on the astro on Mon & Wed nights. His son Jack is a schoolboy player with the club. We would like to extend our condolences to his wife Linda, children Emma & Jack and to all his family and friends at this very sad time.
