Bride Rovers GAA Notes.

 

AGM on December 10th.

The Annual General Meeting of the Bride Rovers GAA Club will be held on Monday December the 10th in the Clubrooms at 8pm. While no silverware came our way in 2012 we can look back with some satisfaction on the performances of our teams. Our Senior Hurling team staved off the threat of relegation in a pulsating game against Cloyne. For 2013 we face into our tenth season in the Senior Hurling grade. During 2012 we lost one of the Club stalwarts in Tony Walsh. Tony was an iconic figure in the club having served both as a player and officer for many, many years.

Nomination Forms for the Election of Officers for 2013 are currently being circulated. These must be returned to the Club Runai by Monday December the third. Notice of Motions for the AGM must also be returned by December the 3rd.

If you have any old Club photos we would love to put them up on the website so please contact any Club Officer. We have very few photographs from the 1940's and 1950's and would seek any GAA related pictures taken in thee parish during this period. Even photos of groups or individuals at carnivals, tournaments or East Cork games would be very welcome.

Well done Kildorrery.

The Cork CO JHC champions Kildorrery had a great win over Waterford side Butlerstown on Sunday last. This victory qualifies them for the Munster Final in Mallow on Sunday forthnight December the 9th. Seldom will a club have a chance to play a Provincial Final so close to home so it augurs well for the North Cork side.
