 Club AGM on January 20th

The AGM of our club will be on January 20th 2017. As always we will be seeking nominations for many positions in the club.

We are continually seeking volunteers to assist us in the running and management of our ever expanding club.

Getting involved in your local GAA Club is a wonderful way to form new friendships – as well as giving opportunities for skills and expertise to be shared for the benefit of all in our community.

If you would like to become involved in any aspect of our club, please contact any member of our club executive.

Welcome Home Chairman Henry

Wouldn’t a win or share in the Lotto Jackpot be a fantastic way to end 2016 and an even better way to begin 2017?

The next draw takes place on Friday, December 30th 2016, in Knightly’s Bar, Castlemaine.

Between now and Christmas –an extra special prize: Match three lucky numbers and you could win or share €500. Tickets for the lotto are available from our regular sellers and business outlets.

Thank you to each person who has supported our Lotto draw. To all the ticket sellers-your endeavours are very much appreciated too.

Mid Kerry Senior Championship:

Hard luck to our senior team who were defeated by the narrowest of margins by Beaufort- on Sunday last.

Despite getting off to a great start and keeping their opponents scoreless for almost 15 minutes, it was Beaufort captain Nathan Breen who accepted the Michael O’ Connor Cup.

Congratulations to Ronan Murphy, Beaufort who received the Bunkers Bar-Man of the Match Award.

Well done to the management team of Mike Hickey, Mike Carroll, Timmy Teahan and Garry Murphy for the wonderful work they have done throughout the year. Well done too to all the players who put in a tremendous effort over the past year. Perhaps 2017will be your year!-le Cunamh De. Special thanks to Laune Rangers for the use of their facilities and to the Mid Kerry Board for organising the competition.

Christmas Greetings

Wishing all our readers and supporters-at home and abroad- a really happy time with your families over the Christmas Season.
