NIGHT AT THE DOGS FUNDRAISER
We’d like to extend our thanks to all who were involved or contributed to a very successfully Night At The Dogs fundraiser at Thurles Greyhound Stadium last Saturday night. The entertainment carried long into the night well after racing had finished. Congratulations to Ailbe Cummins on winning the €500 prize in our buster race. The winning sequence of dogs in the race was 5, 1, 6, 4, 3, 2. Thanks to all the athletes and also to Connie Ryan for acting as auctioneer. Matt Ryan justified his billing as the top earner in the auction by winning the Black And Amber 1k. Paul Shanahan finished 2nd with Mike Gleeson in 3rd. Footage of the night will be uploaded to social media in the coming days.
The junior hurlers had a comprehensive 3-31 to 3-7 victory over Boherlahan Dualla last Saturday in the mid semi final. This sets up a mid final clash against Gortnahoe-Glengoole with no date yet decided. This will be a repeat of this years mid junior league final.
ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CHARITY RUN AND WALK
With the bar set high from last weekends Black and Amber 1k at the greyhound stadium, now may be the time for the rest of the parishes athletes to start training for our annual charity run and walk. This years run will take place on Sunday Jan 8th. More details will follow in due course.
