Annual Long Puc

The Annual Long Puc event will take place on St. Stephens Day again this year at 11:00 AM. The event is a fundraiser for the Juvenile Club. This is a great fun day out, a chance for some exercise after the excesses of the day before. Families are very welcome and it starts at the crossroads by Leamlara church and finishes at the GAA grounds. Just bring a hurley and sliotar. Hopefully the weather will hold up for us and a big crowd will turn up to take part. Looking forward to seeing you there!
