Happy Christmas and New Year to all our members and supporters. Thank you for your support throughout the year whether it be on the pitch, watching games online or supporting our fundraising efforts. Here's to 2021 seeing the GAA season and everyday life return to something more normal.
MOHER HILL 7K FOR CAMEO CARE
Join our Annual Christmas Charity fundraiser taking place on Christmas day to Sunday January 3rd. All funds raised are in aid of Cameo Care, Dementia Support Group, Thurles. With Covid restrictions we’ve had to change how we normally hold the event for this year.
It’s simple – walk or run the 7k course at any stage between Xmas day and Sunday Jan 3rd. Donate €10 via our Go Fund Me page (http://gofundme.com/moher-hill-7k-for-cameo-care) or at Ryans shop or Drombane Co-Op. Kids are free. If you’re running it, text your name and time to 086-8281939 by midnight Jan 3rd. Feel free to have multiple go’s to get your best time!
For those not familiar with the course, don’t worry as we have posted it on Facebook, Twitter & the GoFundMe page and there will be ample signage along the route too!

2005 U21B MID FINAL ADDED TO YOUTUBE
Just added to our youtube channel is the 2005 Mid U21B Hurling Final v Holycross Ballycahill for you to view https://youtu.be/cSEsbjHMVz8
