Referees we are actively encouraging people who have played the game to consider taking up the referee mantle. Without referees our games cannot go ahead, it is a way of giving back to the game

and indeed in staying involved with the GAA family. If you would consider taking up the challenge, contact any committee member who will ensure that you are trained and supported all the way. Give it a go!

Congratulations to Senior player, Steven Lambe who together with his wife Catherine, has just welcomed a beautiful baby girl….a camogie player no doubt!!

Condolences are extended to the McVicar family, Cremartin on the death of their mother, Maimie who passed away last week. Maimie was mother of former player, now deceased, Paddy McVicar, may she rest in peace.
