2005 was yet again a very busy year for the Club and I would like to pay special thanks to all Team
Managers, Coaches and both juvenile and senior club committees for all their support in continuing to develop the club. A special thanks also to all the parents, without your support in bringing players to training and games we would be unable to field the teams we do.
We are currently running our Indoor season until Easter for players aged 6, 7 & 8 each Wednesday night at Carnmore Coummity Centre from 7.00-8.15pm.
