We fondly remember fundraising projects in the past, such as the Scotstown Carnival in the 1960s to the purchase of our main field at Urbleshanny,
The Lord Mayor Campaign in the 1980s to fund the building of Sportlann Mhuire (the complex) and development of St.Marys Park and indeed, the ambitious purchase Of Kilmore in 1995 which has contributed to the outstanding success we achieve today.
