Annual Confined Gala


The Club held its annual Confined Gala on Saturday

November 29th at 6p.m.

There was a very big entry.

See the NEWS page for pictures from the gala.


The Committee has decided the membership fees for the coming year will be:

Child: €100

Family: €150

Children also pay €5 each time they attend training sessions.

The committee regrets having to increase its charges for the coming year but feels that the Club is still exceptionally good value.

The Club is a voluntary organization and none of its teachers or coaches is paid for the work they do.



The Saturday and Sunday evening classes commenced on

Saturday September 20th at 6p.m.


The following are the training times for the first few weeks back.

Tuesday: 6.30am to 8.00am Senior Group and Junior Group
Wednesday: 6.30am to 8.15am Senior Group  5.15 pm to 7.00pm Junior Group
Thursday:  6.00pm to 8.00pm Senior and Junior Group
Friday: 6.30am to 8.00am Senior and Junior Group
Sunday: 10.00am to 12.00am Senior and Junior Group



Membership fees are now due and should be paid as soon as possible.
