Social & Presentation Night
Our annual social and presentation night will take place on Friday 25th February in St. Mary’s Hall. Tickets will be on sale shortly and special guest on the night will be Aogan O’Fearghail, Uachtaran Chomhairle Uladh. The highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the Hall of Fame Award along with the Senior, Reserve and Minor Player of the Year Awards.

“Rock Country” Night
If you are suffering from ‘X Factor’ withdrawal fear not because there seems to be no end to the talent within the village and our next rollercoaster ride involves some of our best and brightest singers preforming some of their favourite Country & Western songs. It maybe ‘doom and gloom’ economically ladies and gentlemen but here in the club we do try our best and we hope to wipe away the blues and bring some fun, music and great singing to put a smile back on your faces as preparations are at an advanced stage for our “Rock Country” night to be held on Friday 18th March in St. Mary’s Hall. Following on from our hunk extravaganza this proves to be another spectacular night and you’d be a fool to miss it! Next week I hope to be in a position to announce all the performers so watch this space for more details.
Juvenile Presentation Night
Plans for our juvenile presentation night are progressing well and I hope to have full details for you in next week’s notes.
Anyone interested in taking part in senior scor this year can you please contact our Cultural Officer Ollie McQuillan as soon as possible. There are plenty of opportunities in music, singing, storytelling, dancing and novelty act.

As a member or a supporter of the club why not get involved and help out with this important part of the club. All new and fresh ideas are always welcome so please come forward and let us know.
