Wedding bells are in the air while our annual race day is an overwhelming success as our Walking Group gear up for the new year. All this and more in this week’s news on the Blues
Club Race Day
The club held its annual race day on Sunday, 29 December in Limerick Race Course and it turned out to be a huge success with many from the town attending what proved to be a fun-filled afternoon of horse racing. We wish to thank all the organisers especially Eddie Sheary as well as our generous sponsors without who’s kindness the event could not have succeeded as well as the staff at Limerick Race Course for all their assistance.
Paul and Elaine
We all wish to congratulate Paul Lillis on his marriage on Saturday last to his very own Galway girl, Elaine Kelly, at a beautiful ceremony in St. Killian’s Church, New Inn.
Paul, an extremely talented water and hurley carrier, has been a stalwart of the club all his life, never failing to help out when called upon and is currently embarking on a five-year long logistics managerial apprenticeship. The reception was held afterwards in Loughrea where talented poet, linguist and orator Mattie Lillis spoke passionately and eloquently for 47 minutes to an enthralled and captive audience while best man, David Sherlock, recounted Paul’s brief golf career.
The club sends Paul and Elaine our best wishes on their wonderful journey as they begin their new lives together.
Club Walking Group
Our club walking group will be holding walks around the town on the following two occasions:
Monday 30th 7pm
Wednesday 1st 10am
Ireland Lights Up
The Ireland Lights Up initiative, in conjunction with the Operation Transformation and Get Ireland Walking has been hugely successfully over the past number of years with over 270 clubs and a total of 65,000 walkers taking part during 2019.
In a bid to walk off the turkey and make exercise more accessible on the darker nights, clubs across the 32 counties are turning on their floodlights and hosting community walking groups during the broadcast period of the hit RTÉ show.
If you would like to participate you are more than welcome to join us in our walks around the town from 7pm to 8pm every Tuesday and Thursday evening from MacDonagh Park, starting 7th January.
