U21 Football: The GAA season gets under way this weekend with a local derby. Our U21 footballer's take on Newport in the first round of the 'B' championship. The match is provisionally fixed for Saturday, check fixtures for confirmation. Please support the team in their first outing of the year.

Shave or Dye: Two club members Michael Fitzgerald and Shane McGrath are having their heads shaved to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society on Friday night in Ballinahinch at 9.30pm. There will be a raffle and spot prizes on the night also. Please support the lads for this great cause.

Athletics: Congratulations and well done to Sarah, Emma and Tom Hennessy, and to Sean Carolan on their participation in the Munster Indoor Relays, last weekend. Sarah's team just missed out on a place in the final, while Emma was a member of the U15 Girls relay team which won the bronze medal. Sean was a member of the Boy's U-12 relay team which also won bronze. Tom & his team won gold in the 4 X 200m U-18 relay, in what was probably the race of the day. A fantastic performance saw them edge out a highly fancied Dooneen team. Well done to all, & good luck in the All-Ireland's. Emma also competed in the County Indoor individual events on Sunday last, where she came home with two golds & a silver. Once again, Emma produced a p.b. in both the long jump (4.83 - Silver) & high jump (1.48 - Gold). Emma's relay team also took Gold in the final. Well done Emma.
