DVD Launch:

The launch of our much anticipated DVD on the club’s 50 year history will take place in the complex on Saturday @9:00pm SHARP. RTE analyst and Meath star Colm O Rourke is set to launch the DVD. A serious amount of time has gone into this project this last year, and undoubtedly would not have been possible only for the cooperation of so many people who thankfully seen fit to lend pictures and archives of any nature to the production of this fine piece of history. It is a must for any house in the parish and those who have association with the community.



Below are the ten questions spanning five decades about the club’s history, covering adult football, juveniles, scor, administration and referees. In order to be in with a chance to claim the first DVD on the night, please answer all of the questions below. Entries will be accepted by e mail to club secretary Derek Mc Mahon only, or by the more traditional method of pen and paper with answers in a sealed, named envelope and handed into Cormac’s  post office. Make sure all answers are in correct order and clearly labeled. Deadline is Saturday 12th May  @ 12 noon.
