Big Week Ahead

This week is a massive week for our Club both on and off the field. Off the field our dancing skills will be put to the test as 8 months of meetings, planning, practising and selling will all come together in the Landmark Hotel on Friday night when the eagerly awaited Kilmore Does Strictly will take place. This is a very special night for the club and a night not to be missed. Our 14 couples on the night are as follows John Llyod & Anne Doyle, JJ McWeeney & Siobhan Hunt, Seamus Beatty & Noreen Corcoran, Jerome McWeeney & Geraldine Monaghan, Andrew Reynolds & Emma Conlon, Liam Bracken & Claire Collins, Paul Flaherty & Tracey Duignan, David Hynes & Imelda McCormack, Thomas Murray & Sinead Clabby, Kevin Finn & Aine Caslin, Shane Killoran & Fiona Tiernan, Ciaran MCLoughlin & Alison Moffat, Paul McElhone & Pamela McGauran and Jamie Sharkey & Breda Duffy. The night gets underway at 8pm Sharp with the 1st dance starting at 8pm Sharp. Doors in the Landmark will open at 7pm. €20 tickets are nearly sold out and remaining tickets can be purchased by contacting any member of the Committee. Seating is unreserved. We also have €10 standing tickets available in the adjoining room to the event. So make sure and come along to what will no doubt be a great night. We would like to thank all our sponsors and everyone who has contributed to this event. Over the weekend we hand an “unusual” wedding in Cryans, Carrick On Shannon, a Comedy night in Strokestown that was a great success, A packed house attended the Take Me Out event on Saturday night in Bothar Rua, Elphin, A great day was had at the foot golf on Saturday and the kids events at the Centre on Saturday and Sunday and also both card games that took place over the weekend. Thanks again for all your support.

County Intermediate Final

On the pitch we have a massive date on Saturday at 2pm in Strokestown when we play Oran in the County Intermediate Championship final replay. We would ask all supporters to make the trip to Strokestown and show your support for the team. We wish the players and management the very best of luck on Saturday. The Club thanks Percy Whelans pub Carrick On Shannon for its donation towards the sponsorship of a set of polo shirts for the team for the final.

Minor Final

Pride of the parish this week goes to our minor team of Kilmore/Shannon Gaels who won the Division 3 Minor Championship on Sunday last and took home the Brian King memorial cup. Well done to all the players from both clubs involved. Also well done to the management team on a mighty win.

Last Man Standing

Our Last Man Standing is now down to 9 people and the remaining players can be viewed on our website.
