It is with deepest regret that we have to talk about the death of our friend Maura Curran, who in her life time was one of the greatest supporters of our club. Along with her late husband Michael she always had a keen eye on how our club was progressing and was always on hand to help with all our fund raising activities especially our club Lotto which she had a special interest in,been the overseer of Lotto Procedures up to very recently. We have lost a special Lady and a friend and she will be sadly missed by all who support the Old Borough.The club was saddened to hear of the death of our first lady club secretary in the early hours of October 15th 2017. Maura became our secretary in 1983 and she served in that capacity until 1995 during which time she oversaw the purchase of our club grounds and our three in a row County senior football titles. Maura also served as PRO from 1995 until 2000 and she was served as either membership officer or on the committee until the year 2008.
We travelled to Cappoquin last Saturday to play the Western Football Semi final against Ballyduff. Yet again we were beset with a slow start and we had to wait for the first goal to settle and for a while it looked like we would score more goals than points. We came away with a good win and now have a Western Final to look forward to, we do not know who we are playing as the other semi final between Colligan and Modeligo was a draw. Well done to all concerned.
We are now in the happy position to launch our latest fund raiser, which the main prize is €5000 worth of Shopping Vouchers from Garvey’s Super Valu, 2nd Prize is €250 worth of Shopping Vouchers from Garvey’s, 3rd prize is €150 worth of Shopping Vouchers from Garvey’s.

As we all know by now, helmets that are tampered in any way will not be covered by insurance if they receive a facial injury.
