Making a Splash – A million thanks to all our brave clubmen who took to a freezing Glenade lake on Saturday and Glencar lake on Sunday for Adrian’s fundraiser.  We cannot adequately express how grateful we are to the many people who have donated from near and far during the month of January in aid of our new pitch development. Special mention again goes to Adrian O’Flynn – we deeply appreciate your unbelievable effort and sacrifice for Glencar Manor.

Recipe for Success – Thank you to St. Clare’s Comprehensive School and in particular Ms. Conaty and Niall Brady from NB Nutrition and Exercise who facilitated our U’15 boys’ team on Friday evening for the “Recipe for Success” programme.  This was a really enjoyable evening where hopefully all the lads learned the importance of cooking and eating healthily.  Sincere thanks also to Niall Brady and Ronan Flynn our clubs, Healthy Club Officers for arranging the event.  Do be sure to check out Niall’s Facebook Page NB Nutrition & Exercise for loads of tips for healthy eating.
