FAMILY FUN DAY
The heavy showers on Saturday morning gave little hint of the excellent weather to follow in the afternoon which was exactly what the doctor ordered for our Family fun day and BBQ.A fine turnout – many of whom were new families to the club – relaxed in the ideal conditions as the children covered every blade of grass in Derreen. One could not have asked for more and it’s due to the diligent work of Brian Moriarty and his Social Events Committee who are fast becoming experts at these important club occasions. Face-painting, treasure hunt, raffles, target ball, pitch and putt along with live music from Tom Lucey all melted together to make the whole event a great day out. Not for the first time though central to the success was the culinary skills of professional chefs Connie Carroll and Timmie Brosnan who gave so generously of their time and expertise to keep the crowd fed with the tastiest of BBQ food. They were ably assisted by Margaret Reen, Joanne Downey who is a regular at every match and event run by the club and without these willing volunteers the G.A.A. would be much the poorer (special thank you to Shane, Cassie and Émear).A big míle buíchos to everybody involved and who attended and look forward to many more social events in the future.
We are delighted to say that Maura McCarthy our most able merchandise and shop director has brought in a whole new range of high quality club gear. Ranging from light shirts right up to warm winter jackets there is certainly something there for all ages from juvenile right up to those who remember black and white television. Ideal gifts for all occasions Maura will put you right and it won’t break the bank.
Congratulations to Cian Gammell, Peter Keane and Chris Flannery as they yet again qualified for another All Ireland minor final, hopefully there will be two Kerry teams in Croke Park on the day.
The very best of luck to all those who will be receiving their Leaving Cert results next week.
