Hi all and welcome back after the Christmas break! We hope you had a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas and are settling nicely into 2017.
All was quiet over the Christmas on the pitches with only training taking place to run off the festivities! Our Senior men have been on the pitch preparing for the league all over Christmas and our Ladies were back together and running Cratloe.
Our seconds and ladies are back in League again this weekend, the seconds travel to Nenagh while our Ladies hold the fort in Coonagh. Both games will be massively competitive fixtures and welcome all bodies back into 2017 with a bang! All support is welcome to either game. Our thirds travel to Abbeyfeale to play in the James Smyth Memorial Cup friendly.
Our underage is also back in the swing of things with all training back on in Coonagh. Our 18s continue their Pan Munster Cup campaign in Grove Island, all support welcome! Our 14s welcome Bruff and our 13s have a vial league match in Coonah which will be on the pitch before our Ladies kick off. All support is welcome!

We are delighted to announce that we are launching the 2017 Champ or Chimp competition on the 19th of January. It's bit later this year but we have some exciting tweaks made to the competition.
Entry Forms will be available from the 10th of January and will also be available to download from our website. The closing date for receipt of entries is the 10th March.
This has always been a hugely successful competition with our entries doubling year on year since we have started. It's always highly entertaining and competitive as we get to the business end of the season!!
In the past we have partnered with other clubs on a 50/50 basis and we would be very anxious to talk to any other clubs who might be interested. Contact Pat Downey on 087 6709225 with queries.
We are really looking forward to getting the competition going this year again and hopefully with your help we can make this year our most successful one yet!!
