Congrats to John Loftus, Eimear Lally, Keith Higgins, Tommy Connelly & Seamus McWalter. We will also be doing the monthly members draw on the same night. Can all members please ensure they are paid up to date prior to the draw.

Hurling: Under 6/8/10's training for the next two weeks has been changed to Thursday evenings from 6:30 - 7:30pm on account of the Fun Run & All Ireland which are on over the next 2 Sundays.

The Junior team are playing in a Championship match on Sunday evening against Spiddal in Castlegar at 6:30pm. Support for the team is welcome.

The finals of the first Kay Williams U-12 Memorial tournament took place last Saturday evening in Abbey with Ahascragh/Fohenagh defeating Tuam in the shield final and Skehana narrowly defeating Abbey in the Cup final. Abbey had the better of the exchanges during the match but failed to take advantage and were caught in the closing minutes by a goal to lose out by two points. Overall the competition played over two weeks was a great success and a fitting tribute the Kay who was a tremendous servant to Abbey hurling club. Special thanks to Shane King & Gerry Giles who officiated at the games, to all the parents who helped out on the day in providing food and catering, Michael Tarpey in the organizing of the event and to Mattie Ryan for his kind sponsorship. This is now an annual event set in the club calendar and we hope next year our boys can win back the trophy

'Run in the Woods 2012' - 5km fun run/walk & 10km run through Monivea Woods. You can register on or on the day from 10am. See or our Facebook page for more details. We'd ask that as many try to support this event as possible. This is open to all regardless of fitness or ability. The aim of the day is to promote the services that are provided by CONSOLE and from the proceeds of the day a donation is being made to CONSOLE which will directly benefit their centre in Elm Park, Renmore. So come and join us to either run the route or walk it as a family, the choice is yours. Refreshments will be provided afterwards in the Fr. Sammon Hall. We'd like to thank all who supported the church gate collection at the weekend which was to raise funds for the All Ireland hurling fund.
