Matt O’Callaghan did a fantastic job as always with his research done well in advance he was able to recite scores of Harty Cup games from years ago. There were interesting questions from the floor that added to the night.

Healthy Club Family Fun Day
Last Sunday saw children and adults taking part in a fun filled day with many activites. For those of a less active disposition there was a book and cake sale in the hall, with plenty of GAA entertainment on the telly in the bar. One of the highlights of the day was the obstacle relay where teams of four joined together to do different sections of the race. Big children joined with smaller children to make teams in an event where no-one was left without a team. Unfortunately a bit of rain fell but that did not stop a lot of the runners who eagerly awaited the next event. Thank you to all who helped out and donated books and cakes. A total of €126.44 will be handed over to The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association. In the Hurling Challenge event there was an U10 , U14 and coaches group. The U10 winner was Rian Murphy, U14 was Liam Lynch and the coaches winner was Denis Moloney.
The camps aim is to bring together young people from different sporting and cultural backgrounds using coaching sessions in both Gaelic games and soccer. These on-field activities, led by top coaches from both codes, were complemented by an innovative off-field programme that is intended to enhance the life-skills of the participants in a number of targeted areas.
