Not too much happening on the field over the Christmas period, 2016 ended with our annual festive game of football between the old codgers & the young pretenders. We had a great turn out with 30 plus players participating, experience once again came to the fore and the game can be summed up in one abbreviated word “Chicken-Wing”. Only those in attendance will understand!
A big congratulations needs to go to Gillian Mc Cluskey who valiantly represented the Junior Dublin stars at corner forward with an impressive 1-1 last weekend.
Our 1917-2017 centenary celebrations began in earnest on New year’s day, numbers are not my strong point but there must have been at least 6,000 past & present members in attendance. A big thank you to all of those who made the day a fantastic success, if this is anything to go by the forthcoming events will be a well worth attending.
