Shane Hennessy and Killian Gleeson have a successful table quiz, the Kingdom seek to conquer Tipperary while another social walk is planned for New Year’s Day. All this and more in this week’s news on the Blues
St. Stephen’s Day Walk
A large crowd of walkers gathered for the club’s 5km and 7.5km social walks on St. Stephen’s Day. We wish to thank the organisers and there are walks from the club every Tuesday evening at 7pm, open to all.
New Year’s Day Walk
After the success of the St. Stephen’s Day walk, the club are organising another social walk for New Year’s Day. Again, there are two distances, 5km and 7.5km. Registration is at 10:15am in the complex with the walk commencing at 10:30am. Everyone is welcome regardless of fitness and no one will be left behind.
Don’t forget that you have a brilliant opportunity to see Liam Sheedy’s new Tipperary outfit in action in MacDonagh Park on Saturday next, December 5th at 2pm in MacDonagh Park as the Kingdom make the trip north for the second round of the Co-Op Superstores Munster Hurling League. In their previous match Tipperary overcame the challenge of All-Ireland champions Limerick, 4-14 to 2-17, with both Jake Morris and Barry Heffernan featuring.
Shane Hennessy’s Table Quiz
It was fantastic to see a massive crowd from the club in the Dapp Inn on Friday evening to support Shane Hennessy and Killian Gleeson as the two lads raise funds for the GVI charity which they are volunteering to work for next June in Cape Town.
With over twenty teams participating in the table quiz it was Table 17 who came out on top at the end. We send our congratulations to Enda Costello, Gerry Robinson, Ray Deering, Kevin Costello and their mobile phones on a stunning victory. In second place was the magnanimous Table 15 consisting of Matt Lillis, Marion Ryan, Bartley Ryan and Enda O’Sullivan. It must be pointed out that the second placed team did not, at any stage, resort to Google or their neighbouring teams for answers and in a dignified manner, only lost by one solitary point.
A special thank you goes to the hosts the Dapp Inn and quizmaster for the night, Kevin Whelan.
Athbhliain faoi shéan is faoi mhaise daoibh
The club want to take this opportunity to wish all our players, mentors, officials, supporters, sponsors and the wider community a very happy 2019 and we hope all your wishes and dreams will be fulfilled in the new year.
