Another excellent initiative the club are happy to support this week is the Darkness into Light event - Info from Bernie and the Event organisers.
The countdown is well and truly here. Darkness into light is taking place this Saturday morning at 4.15am. Join us and support us in any way you can big or small. This year we are asking people to make up their own mind whether they complete the 5km walk or if they would just like to join us at the GAA pitch before or after the walk to greet the sunrise, have a chat and a cup of tea and feel the buzz of the community coming together once again.
If you are still hoping to register we will have a committee member at the GAA on Thursday afternoon from 2.30 to 3.30 to help with registration and also to take donations. Again on Friday we will have a committee member in the square from 6pm to 7pm to help with registration and also to take donations. We have a small amount of t-shirts left also if you need them. If you are unable to meet the times above and still need assistance please pm the page and we will be happy to help.
Lighting the Way
The last few years we were incredibly lucky that so many estates made an effort with displays of light and art works for our crowds to enjoy. We really hope that this year will be no different. We would still love if anyone who has previously left out a display or a show of support that If you see this message and are willing to put something out for us please get in contact. Ideally we would love to hear from every area that we pass but we understand if that is not possible. We greatly appreciate any effort made. If you wish to get in contact please do.
We received many lovely comment over the last few years about the effort made by young and old in the village and we hope to continue to make the night as special as we can.
