The club ran a Christmas Bazaar last month at Fr Breen Park, with a huge attendance of both young and not so young! Everybody who attended enjoyed themselves and why wouldn’t they? Santa and Mrs Clause turned up to greet the kids and double check on their Christmas lists, our Kerry footballer Stephen, Seanie, James and Dan ran coaching drills for our budding stars. The Wheel of Fortune kept everybody on their toes with some amazing prises and there was also hot food, drinks buns and cakes and Xmas trees on offer. We are hoping for a bigger and better Bazaar in 2019 so please come out and support it, and ee would like to say a big thank you to the committee who organised this great Day and for all the volunteers who helped in making it so successful.
