If some other evening is more suitable to you call (086) 8647166 and let us know. It’s better to do a little than to do nothing at all.
Adjudication is in full swing over the next number of weeks and we need the help of every resident in the village to improve our marks this season. We appeal to everyone in and around the village to make a special effort to keep it clean and tidy.

Good Luck.

We extend the best of luck to Elaine Hough and Caoimhe Kennedy and the Tipperary Intermediate camogie team when they take on Limerick this coming Saturday 17th. in a Limerick venue in the All-Ireland series. This will be an uphill battle for the young Tipp side who will be facing into a Limerick team that re-graded from senior earlier this year. All the best girls and give it your best shot.
