It was the end of an era this week with the passing of our long serving President, Tommy McDermott after a brief illness. The club provided a guard of honour at the funeral and club members had the privilege of carrying Tommy on his final journey. We wish to express our sympathy with his wife Doreen, daughter Ann and sons, John, Kevin, Thos, Niall and Donie and the wider McDermott family on their loss. Ní bheidh a leithéid aris ann. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

The dinner dance takes place this Saturday in the Clayton Hotel at 8.00PM. Tickets are available for €25 from any committee member. Medals will be presented to the Senior Team who won the Intermediate Championship and championship runners up medals will be presented to the Senior Ladies team along with the Player of the year awards. We will also be inducting a stalwart of the Club, Michael Reynolds into the Hall of Fame. Michael has been a tremendous servant to the club serving as county board delegate for many years and an ever present member of the committee. We look forward to honouring Michael on the night.
