Once again, the countdown to the All-Ireland Club Final is almost over, as we take on Dr Crokes of Killarney at 3.45 in Croke Park on St. Patrick’s Day.
Everyone in the parish sends their best wishes to the players and the management team as they put their final preparations in place for the final. We hope that all the hard work, dedication and commitment displayed by the entire panel will ensure that we bring the Andy Merrigan Cup to our parish for the fourth time and for the second year in a row.
We wish a safe journey to our many supporters travelling to the game.
