Underage Hurling: Underage hurling training for U6, U8 & U10's continues every Friday 7-8pm. All welcome. U12 & U13 hurling training on Monday 7-8pm. We have an U12 semi-final and U13 Quarter final to look forward to soon.

Sept 5th, 2015 will see the 4th Annual 'Run in the Woods' take place but this year we've a few changes made which hopefully will make for a more enjoyable event. First up, we've brought back the 10km route which for the most part is in the woods with only a short distance being on the road. The 5km route too has changed. We've also changed to a Saturday evening this year and will be holding post-race celebrations on the village green with music and entertainment.

This event is of course an AAI Certified race and has been Jones Counter Measured. There will be official timing with race results being published on our website, Facebook,, Run Ireland and the AAI sites.

Since we started this event we have had a charity partner each year. In 2012 & 2013 the beneficiaries were CONSOLE. Last year it was split between the Abbeyknockmoy Benevolent Fund and Cystic Fibrosis Ireland but this year we have chosen to keep it local and have chosen the Abbeyknockmoy Playground Committee as the beneficiary.

Sponsorship cards are available for anyone who wishes to help further in raising funds for our club and our chosen charity. To get an authorised sponsorship card contact Sharon 085-7074747.

If you wish to fundraise online then contact Gerry Kinane on 087-2559567 who will set up an approved online fundraising page.
