Bride Rovers GAA Club Notes

23 March, 2016



Busy Weekend Coming Up.

Football Championship and Senior Hurling league games on Saturday and Sunday means it will be a busy weekend on the playing front.

Due to a change of East Cork fixtures last weekend our Junior A Grade Football championship game v Fr O Neills did not go ahead. The game has now been rescheduled for this coming Saturday March 26th. No venue has been confirmed at the time of writing. Fr O Neills are the 2015 East Cork JAFC winners and will provide very tough opposition. Best of luck lads, go for it.

On Sunday 0 Easter Sunday we play the County Champions Glen Rovers in the REDFM County Senior Hurling League. Both ourselves and Glen Rovers have played two games in the SHL to date and both have two wins so this should be an interesting game.

This weekend of course is Easter weekend a century since the 1916 Easter Rising and we are planning to have a short commemorative ceremony on Sunday to mark this very special event in the history of our country. The game on  Sunday in Pairc na Bride is timed for 12.15 and we will have a reading of the 1916 Proclamation and raising of our National Flag ,the Tricolour, before the commencement of the match. We are also producing a special Souvenir programme for the game so do please come along on this special occasion.
