ENTRIES POUR IN FOR THE HOOLI LONG PUCK ON JULY 1ST
Following the success of last year’s inaugural long puck organised by the Houihan family and friends in which over £13,000 was raised for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Fund, preparations for this year’s event at the Dungarvan GAA grounds on Saturday July 1st are well under way. Entries have already matched last year’s figures and the organisers are working diligently to stage this year’s ‘PUCK’ which will again be based around a family occasion. The day commemorates the life of David Houlihan who died in Thailand in 2015 and who was repatriated with the help of the Kevin Bell Repatriation fund and thoughts throughout the day are also very much with David’s clubmate Trevor Crotty who died in a road accident in 2016.
Patron of the event Rev. Fr. Ned Hassett will open the day’s events with mass in the club stand at 9am, following which the tree planted in honour of David and Trevor will be blessed. The Juveniles will get the long puck under way followed by the adult section over the same course as last year but starting and finishing at different points adjacent to the memorial tree. Throughout the day, food will be served and activities will cater for one and all in what is sure to be a very worthwhile event to attend.
Last year the auction and raffle on the Saturday night was an outstanding success and this year’s gathering will be staged in the Park Hotel with Gavin Whelan of WLRFM as compeer and Studio 80, the Duggan brothers providing the music.
The organising committee appreciates the sponsorship of local businesses, donations to the auction and everybody who is putting their shoulder to the wheel to make this year’s event another community based success.
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.

On the 18th of May we held the Launch for our Movie Night in association with Eurofins. This unique event will take place on Saturday the 1st of July at our Club Grounds at Clogherane with gates opening at 8.00pm.It is a Family Friendly Event and there will be Strictly No Alcohol. We would expect all Club Members to come on board to help with this venture to make it a complete success. Tickets are now on sale for this event and can be got from any committee member.
The Brickey Rangers were visitors to Clogherane on Thursday last, to play our u14s in the first round of the hurling Championship, It was a very disappointing display by our lads and we will have to improve greatly for our next game, however 2 young men stood tall and failed to bend the knee, well done to Leon Lannen and Eoin O Callaghan for their heroic displays against all the odds.
