The winter has seen the Club examine better ways to communicate with its membership. Outside of the social media channels of Facebook, Instagram andTwitter and the usual weekly written notes it is imperative to keep all our players, parents, mentors and officials in touch with club affairs. To this end we have enlisted the app Clubzap to aid us with our communications. Downloadable through the relevant app store it is useful for playing Club lotto, paying membership, sharing results and fixtures and directly messaging parents and players of the various age groups. We have already started to roll it out to our Juvenile teams, both boys and girls, and it is envisaged that it will be the tool used to send out messages. Keep an eye out on our social media to see the progress of the roll out and special mention must go to Juvenile Committee Chairman Donal O Leary for his unstinting work during the winter months both sourcing and bringing the initiative to the Club Executive.

Donie Fleming, who was left, front and centre in the club when this writer was attempting to perfect the game of football,   recently celebrated a milestone birthday, his 80th. On behalf of the Club we would like to wish him a happy birthday and many more years of health and happiness.
