Preparations are well underway now for our Là Na gClub celebration which will take place in conjunction with Gaa clubs nationally this coming Sunday. The day is aimed at highlighting the importance of the clubs to the Gaa and an indication that our clubs and the families which run and support them are whats at the essence of the gaa. Our events will kick off at 2pm with fun filled activities over the course of the afternoon for all ages. Several of our underage teams will be involved in blitzes throughout the day. Our senior ladies team will have a game on the main pitch at 2pm before the highlight of the day, the Mìchael Kiernan memorial game will take place at 4pm against our great local rivals Fr. Manning Gaels. Following the presentation of the trophy to the winning captain we intend retiring to the Olde Forge for refreshments and some traditional music. All local up and coming musicians are invited to attend this as it will be an open mic type setting.
Refreshments will be on hand in Emmet Park over the course of the afternoon and our shop will be open. We hope to see a large crowd in attendance.
