Our U14s will play their Garda Cup semi final with Castlerea St Kevins on Sunday next in O’Rourke Park. Support will be appreciated. The Garda Cup Final (irrespective of who is involved) will be played in Abbey Park on Saturday 5th December.
The “Get Active Today” campaign came to a conclusion on Sunday with a very enjoyable 10k walk from Abbey Park to Lough Key, and returning to the Clubroom for a very welcome cup of tea. Thanks to the organising committee who prepared a comprehensive seven week programme of events which included morning and evening walks, circuit training, fitness sessions, pilates, yoga and talks on health and wellbeing. Thanks to the team leaders who facilitated all events and to Kelly’s Londis for their greatly appreciated sponsorship. Hopefully those who participated will continue with their keep fit habits and that many will join local pilates, fitness and yoga classes. It is hoped that an even bigger fitness initiative will be organised next year.
