The Club will hold its eagerly awaited Annual Quiz in St Joseph’s Hall on this Saturday 27th at 8.15pm. Please note the early start so that we can have an early finish and thus enable those who wish to continue their socialising elsewhere. Tony Conboy has been working for many months on a special set of questions and a great night’s entertainment is assured and prizes will be awarded to the top teams. This year, as an added extra, the annual Club awards will be announced and presented. These will include the Senior, Junior and U21 Players of the Year, the Club Person of the Year and the Hall of Fame award. The Ladies Player of the Year will also be announced and presented. All players (male and female) from the aforementioned panels are asked to make a special effort to attend as the winners will not be announced until the night. Admission is €10 and teams of four can be formed for the quiz competition on the night.
