Registration. If any member still hasn’t paid their “club Membership” can do so through Foireann,, so go to www.foireann.ie and get registered and paid up, any issues contact a member of the committee, NB players are not eligible to play in county, provincial or All Ireland events if not registered with Croke Park.
Alley Bookings. The new “online” booking system for the club is proving a great way to book the alleys, but for some reason if your booking is cancelled in any competition please make this aware on Whatsapp groups available, on the “committee”, “team League” & “juvenile” APPS, this will leave members then that they can avail of the free slot, the first member to “thumps UP” the message can claim the slot, even during the league 95% of all games were played but some outside the allocated time of games, and this left a gap that could have been filled, so please be mindful of especially our “younger” players to give them as much access to the alleys as possible, thank you.
