Santa comes to town!

Santa came to town this afternoon in the Coolquay Lodge!!

Our Nursery and U7/U8 Boys & Girls had a wonderful morning and got to speak to Santa to make sure he didn't forget anything on their list!

Our Club president Mary Madigan and Club GPO Nigel Kennedy were with Santa and took a secret count of how many Boys & Girls were on a 'Nice' list - and we can officially reveal - that 'ALL' ... yes 'ALL' ... boys & Girls are on the 'Nice' list!!

MASSIVE thanks to Mary Madigan who made this happen - and Nigel Kennedy MC'ing and making everything tick! Thanks to all mentors of all our U8 down teams.

Thanks to all the staff at the Lodge for feeding us! and Briege for judging the best Christmas Jumper competition won by (winners to follow ...)!

Jerseys will be presented by our wonderful GPO Nigel Kennedy and amazing Club President Mary Madigan - and we'll have a special group photograph afterwards.
