Saints Easter All Stars

Saints All Stars will be running an activity camp from Monday the 25th until the Friday the 29th of March in Bishop Quinlan Park, Borrisoleigh. As children are on two weeks of holidays this might be a good chance for them to get out of the house, as well as a more convenient way for parents to arrange somewhere for their children to be during this week. It will be very similar to the summer camp with Rugby, Football, Soccer and Hurling being the main sport, as well as many other activities added. The age ranges from 5-15 both boys and girls.
The cost is 40 euro per child. If you have multiple children per family, 5 euro will be taken off the price of each child e.g. 2 = 70 euro, 3 = 105 euro etc.
Packed lunch is to be brought with each child.
As always we hope to have a couple of special guests along to meet the children.
The start time is 10am and it finishes at 2pm every day.

If you would like to book in your child please call or text me on 086-332 8697.
The details to text are; Name of Child(ren), Age of Child(ren), Where you are from.

Strategic Club Plan- The club shall hold an open meeting to all members of the parish on Wednesday 6th of February in the Marion Hall. This meeting hopes to develop a 5 year plan across all aspects of the club and we would encourage as many people as possible to attend.

Membership- We are continuing to collect membership from people and ask those who have not yet paid up for the coming year to come forward. We are always looking for new members also. All players are asked to have their membership and insurance paid as soon as possible as non payment will render them unable to line out for Borris.
