A chairde,



As many of you are interested, at the time of writing, we are yet to hear from the County Board officially about tickets for the All Ireland Hurling Final but we would ask any member interested in being entered into a draw for tickets, to call James in the office in the Arus and give your name to him 091527333. 



Things are really ramping up again with many teams back in championship action soon: All 3 adult football teams play this weekend with the seniors in league action and both Junior teams in championship action-all in the Prairie-so be sure and get down and show your support. Of course all roads lead to Croke Park this Saturday for the All Ireland Football Semi Finals this weekend. We wish both Galway teams and particularly our 6 representatives the very best of luck this weekend and we really hope the guys make it to an All Ireland Final. 



The Senior Footballers welcome All Ireland Champions Corofin to the Prairie this Friday in the next round of the league. Throw in is at 7.45pm so please come along and support the lads. 

 



The club were delighted to receive a 5000 euro grant from The Allergan International Foundation this week. Pictured at the presentation were Michael Donnellan – Manufacturing, Pat Ruddy - Dir, Plant General Manager, Paul Maguire - Exec Dir, Global VSL for the Medical Device Product Portfolio, Club Chairperson Diarmaid Ó hAodha and Club Treasurer Noel Schofield

 

The club would like to pass their condolences to hurling coach Frank Keane, his brother Pat, a former football coach with the club, and their family following the death of their mother Peggy of County Cork this week.
