Due to the bad weather over the weekend we have decided to extend the Lions Christmas Appeal for a further week so it will now finish on Sunday 17th December. Also on Sunday the raffle for the Christmas Hamper will take place at 3 p.m. when the Officers of the Lions Club will pay a visit to the Gold Coast to collect, what we hope will be, a sizable cheque .

The fixture list for the coming season is now nearly ready for publication and should be on the website within the next week or so. Our Competition Secretary has produced a very good plan for the year ahead adding a few tweeks to last year’s schedule.

The Annual Handicap Review took place on Monday last and a small number of players will see changes to their handicaps.



Our sympathy is extended to Kathleen McGaley on the passing of her husband Sean during the week. Ar Dheis De go raibh a anam.
