We have decided to climb Croagh Patrick again this year and if it's half as good as last year it'll be a great day. We have a bus booked to travel on Saturday the 26th of July to and from Croagh Patrick where we will climb the Reek and return to base camp Campbells Bar where we will enough a BBQ, few beers and bit of craic. If you are interested in an enjoyable day out contact Declan on 086-8159309 to book a seat. Depending on numbers the max cost for the day is €40.
In Camogie, under age training Wednesday at 7pm & extra session for 10's & 12's Friday at 6pm. Junior B training every Monday & Wednesday at 8pm. 
Hard luck to the U16's who were defeated by Mountbellew over the weekend. They now face Sylane this evening in Sylane. Our 12's are out this Thursday, best of luck to the team and management.  
The Junior B's played Carnmore last week and after a slow start to the game they won on a final score of Abbey 5-6 to Carnmore 0-7. Yesterday evening they played Ardrahan away. It was a slow game whereby we were fairly down at half time. Credit to the Abbey ladies who managed to pull it back in the 2nd half but not enough with the game ending Abbey 3-2 to Ardrahans 1-10. Their next game is against Mountbellew at home in Abbey but fixture not yet confirmed. 
Camogie Club meeting this eve (wednesday) at 9:30pm in the clubhouse. All club officers are expected to attend and all players and members are welcome to attend.
Good luck to the Galway East Athletics who are holding their 5km & 8km run this Sunday in aid of the Oncology unit at the Galway University Hospital.
Also, best wishes to the organisers of the Abbeyknockmoy Community Playground who are holding a family day this Sunday afternoon.
