The second annual Townland League will take place in Pairc an Bhodhráin from Friday January 20th to Friday February 10th 2012 and preparations are underway. The competition was a great success last year with both the senior and junior finals being keenly contested, and we look forward to another great tournament this year with Toarlisnamore in senior and Ballinagore East in junior, seeking to retain their hard won titles. Players will be informed of the details in the coming week and we expect to see the locals down to support their neighbours.
Membership for 2012 is now due and is €20 per adult, €5 for students and OAP's ,and €30 for a family inclusive of parents and children under 18. Membership can be paid to the club Registrar Declan Claffey, or any club officer.
Preparations are well underway for Scór Sinsir and anyone who is interested in taking part should contact the Scór Secretary on 087 7562462 or e-mail to email@example.com.
