This year Abbeyknockmoy Hurling Club will be publishing a Yearbook which will detail all club activities during the year, in hurling, camogie and handball. The Yearbook will include an Archive section and we would ask all those involved with the club, in any capacity,  since its inception 60 years ago to submit their newspaper clippings, photos, and any other pertinent archive material. These will be promptly scanned and returned. The Yearbook will be compiled by the Club's Asst. Treasurer Catherine Forde who previously compiled the history of Crumlin N.S. in 2010 and subsequently received a County Heritage Award for that publication. We look forward then to a Yearbook that the Club and Community can be proud of. Catherine can be contacted at 0876900352

There is a limited supply of the club DVD 'Glory for the Red & Blue' and is available to purchase through club officers and in the parish shops at a cost €25. We thank all who have purchased this piece of memorabilia and hope they enjoyed it.

Congrats to Peter Coleman who made his debut with Kildare at the weekend along with his cousins Paul & Kieran Divilly who are seasoned campaigners for the Lillywhites.
