Sale of Work - We held our annual firewood auction, sale of work, wheel of fortune and cake sale in the Scout Hall last Sunday. We had a very successful day with a very large crowd who bid furiously for the 60+ loads of hardwood and spruce which were on offer for the firewood auction. Inside the hall the wheel of fortune along with the raffle, cake sale, juvenile GAA stand, face painting and book stall all played their part in ensuring that all went home happy after a very enjoyable day. We would like to sincerely thank everyone who supported us in anyway by supplying timber, sponsoring items for the stalls and the wheel of fortune, delivering the firewood on Sunday evening,doing traffic control and to all who came on the day to support us. We would also sincerely like to thank all our own club members and parishioners for their help and support both on the day and in the weeks beforehand, míle buiochas libh go léir.


The juvenile club held their annual medal presentation night in the community hall Knockavilla last Saturday, with medals in U12, U14 and U16 being presented by County minor selector and clubman Brian Horgan and West Senior Board Chairman and fellow club man Roger Kennedy. The boys and girls really enjoyed the treats afterwards. Well done to all involved in the sale of work.
