Many thanks to all outgoing members. Particular mention must go to John and Tommie for all their years service to the club.
The new executive have had a busy start to the year and there are lots of exciting projects being worked on for 2020.
Martin Savage Martin Development
Many thanks for all the feedback over the last few weeks in relation to the development of Martin Savage Park. Ronan Doohan and his sub committee (Bryan Mannix, Kevin Fitzsimons and Mark Crystal) had a few very months working on the development plan in conjunction with Phoenix FC. Thank you to everyone who spoke about the club to their local politicians too. There is overwhelming support for the development and more information will be shared in due course once we here more from Dublin City Council.
Many thanks to everyone who attended the Senior Football Table Quiz last week. Particular thanks to Pat Brennan for being quiz master and MC. Also, in what's firmly an annual event, the Senior Hurlers hosted their breakfast morning on Sunday. Despite Storm Ciara, the team had record attendees. Congrats to all the winners, and make sure to check your tickets as one winner still remains!
The next fundraiser is the Junior B Table Quiz on Friday 21st February. Everyone welcome.
Finally, the ticket book for Dublin vs. Donegal is in the club bar from now until Tuesday. Well done to Sean Bugler scoring 3 points last weekend, helping Dublin get an unlikely draw against Monaghan.
