Senior training has been changed to Tuesday and Friday at 7:30. There is a possibility of league game at the weekend so keep on eye on facebook and texts.

U-14 training is on Monday 7-8pm and our first championship game is Saturday 11th against Liam Mellows in Ballyloughane.

U-13 training is on Saturday 5-6pm and Monday 7-8. New players welcome. Contact Adrian at 0877708056.

U-10 training is on Friday from 6-7pm weekly all welcome.

We are hosting a fundraiser and a charity cycle in aid of Cancer Care West on Saturday 19th August from Croke Park to Abbeyknockmoy. This promises to be a wonderful occasion and we ask any person who has ever sat on a bike to give this a go!

We are looking for teams of 4 to cycle 50km each or whatever suits each rider. Individuals are also welcome. We ask that each person signed up raises €200-250 minimum between now and August. You can register your interest through Facebook or contact any club officer.
There will be plenty of stops on this cycle as it is not a race. The plan is to leave Croke Park at 8am and take our time via the old Galway road. This is the first time we have attempted such a fundraiser and we are delighted to be able to help Cancer care West also.
Snacks and drinks will be provided on the way but obviously have your own food too. There will be lead cars and broom wagons as with all charity cycles so no one will be left behind!
Club will provide free buttock cream for those not too used to the bike for a few years!!! But seriously this is a great cycle for any cyclist to have on their CV and it will be a great day and night afterwards in Abbeyknockmoy.
More details to follow in the coming weeks with sponsorship cards, jerseys etc all being printed.
Our #croker2abbey charity fun cycle meeting is on tonight Wednesday at 9pm in the clubhouse for anyone interested.

Our club kitchen has been totally renovated and you wouldn't know it!!!
Can we ask all managers, players and members to please respect the premises and keep it clean and tidy as you'll find it. It's usually one of the first places someone sees so first impressions!!!

The sympathy of all in the club goes to the family of Mattie Tracey and condolences also to our players Amy and Nicole Higgins on the death of their grandfather Jack.
