Anyone who has been to Pearse Park recently will have noticed that we have a brand new scoreboard to enhance our fantastic facilities. This fully electronic scoreboard has been generously sponsored by Palfinger (Seamus Kane & Luke Carberry). Our old (not so old) scoreboard will be relocated to Pairc na Gael / Pairc na Hurson.
We are very privileged to have so many people & business that support our club by various means and this includes field signs located around our main pitch in Pearse Park. For some people these are due for renewal and if you haven’t already got your space please contact any committee member to get one organised.
Good Luck to all our members who will be sitting exams over the next few weeks. Hopefully all your hard work and effort will be rewarded.
