Puc Fada in aid of Enable Ireland


Puc Fada

After a very busy 2014, the season will come to an end with the Puc Fada on St Stephen's Day. This year's Puc Fada will be in memory of Padraig Fenton who's anniversary occurs at this time. Padraig was a huge part of our club for many years and all proceeds this year will go to Enable Ireland. We would hope that as many girls, boys and adults come along and support this great cause. The morning is open to everyone from school going age to adults alike with teams of 4 to consist of 2 adults and 2 juveniles with an entry fee of €20 per team. This year the Puc Fada will take a different route and will start near the pitch and putt club, taking a clockwise route, passing the graveyard on your right, turning right at Kill-St-Anne North crossroads and coming on to the main road at Spraoi Cross and then heading towards Castlelyons village with the finish line at the 1st speed bump !! The 1st team will be off at 11am with registration taken on the morning. We will have a presentation of prizes in the Community Centre bar afterwards with free finger food where we would hope that everyone will attend. So shake off the cobwebs of Christmas and come out and support a great cause. Any queries to our juvenile secretary, Pat O'Sullivan, on 087-8188612.

County Convention

With all playing activities now finished for the year the last event was the County Convention which was held last week end. Ger Lane of Bride Rovers has become County Chairman and everyone in the club wish him best of luck in his new role and also to Kieran McGann as he continues in the position of Irish/Cultural Officer of the Cork County Board.
The draw for next years championship also took place with Castlelyons drawn against Kanturk in the PIH Championship 1st round. Kanturk ,with 3 players on the Cork Senior team, will be a tough team to beat but this will concentrate the minds of our lads and with the match likely to be played early June this will now be the focus of all the panel.

Season Greetings
