Winter Academy
Please note a few changes to our Winter Academy schedule.  It has been decided to hold training for each group every week and not fortnightly as was before Christmas. Going forward the following days are for the following groups:
All kids born between 2005 and 2010 are to attend on Tuesday evenings.
All kids born between 2011 and 2014 are to attend on Thursday evenings.
Each training session is from 5.45pm to 6.45pm at the Presentation Sports Complex with a €2 charge for lights. We have a busy year ahead of training, blitzes and lots more fun and games, so we hope everyone can attend. As always, new players are more than welcome.

Club Sympathies
We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the families of Michael Murphy, Tommy Ryan, Frances Egan, Willie Maher, Tom O’ Connell, Tony Donnelly, former Thurles Kickhams and Thurles Fennellys player Michael Kenehan  and former Thurles Fennellys player Jimmy Jordan. May they all rest in peace.
