A great way to stay involved in the game other than playing is to become a referee.
It’s a great way to stay fit and with ambition and drive, you could go all the way to
the top and referee a County Final or even an All Ireland! This is a great opportunity to “give something back” while helping to develop personnel skills that are of value
in all walks of life. If you’re interested in becoming a referee, then contact Mike Sexton @ 087 9188375 or Patsy Coffey @ 087 9160344 to register for courses.
Club membership for 2022 can now be paid on Clubzapp. Remember all membership must be paid in full to be permitted to play. Payments can also be made to any committee member. Deadline for payment is March 31st
