UPPERCHURCH DROMBANE’S FITTEST CLUB
Tomorrow(Sat 17th) see’s the sporting clubs of the parish descend on Thurles Greyhound Stadium to decide Upperchurch Drombane’s Fittest Club. Gerry O’Dwyer has designed a special course including bicycles, logs, tyres, bags of coal and more to test the 8 teams to the limit. A full schedule of greyhound racing will also take place on the evening along with music afterwards and all who buy a ticket will also be entered into a buster draw for €500. Anyone who needs to buy last minute tickets(priced at €15) should do so before the night as cash given on the door goes directly to the greyhound stadium and does not benefit the GAA club. Tickets can be bought from players, athletes or committee members. Get your tickets now for a great evenings entertainment. Best of luck to all the participants from Clodiagh Rangers, Upperchurch Drombane Golf Society, Upper Limits Climbing Wall, Slieve Felim Rapparees, Gortahoola Racquetball Club, The Farmers, Upperchurch Drombane Cycling Club and Upperchurch Drombane GAA.
