Blackhill Emeralds Dinner Dance:
Our dinner dance is finally going ahead on Friday March 4th 2022 at the Glencarn Hotel in Castleblayney. This event will present the Monaghan and Ulster JFC medals from 2019 and promises to be a great and long-awaited club occasion. The original event, who will ever forget which was scheduled for March 14th 2020 fell to the original lockdown imposed on March 12th 2020. Original tickets will not be valid for this event. They will need to be exchanged at no cost in the coming weeks for new tickets. This is because the event is strictly limited to 200 tickets. So, if you have tickets at home, please get them to hand and we will make arrangements next week where you can either exchange your tickets for new valid ones or be refunded in full should you wish. Any remaining tickets will go on general sale priced €35 from the social centre after ticket holders have been given an opportunity to replace their 2020 tickets. Further information next week.
