Wed 11th May 2011

A big thank you and congratulations to Peter and Kate Chadwick and Ray Bourke who on behalf of the Club hosted a very successful Open Day last Sunday in Alex. Thanks to everyone else who volunteered in helping out and no doubt made it an enjoyable day for all who attended.

This weekend sees a number of YM players involved in the Senior Interpros which are on in Pembroke. Congrats to Iain Walker, Andy Walker and David Robinson who will be representing Leinster under the expert eye of coach Ger Butler and assistant coach Bogger. They will come up against our very own Jonny Bruton who goes back to his roots to represent Munster. The match schedule is:

Friday Munster vs Leinster, 8pm; Saturday Munster vs Ulster, 5pm; Sunday Leinster vs Ulster, 4pm

The matches will make great watching and Im sure the lads would appreciate any support we can give them!

Alternatively the Junior Interpros are also being held this weekend in Three Rock Rovers. Myself and my sister Tara 'The Hatchett' Powderly will be lining out in Leinster blue for the occasion. No doubt that will be interesting viewing so if you like your hockey at a more ladylike pace it would be great to see you up in Wovers!

On Saturday we will be playing Connaught at 9.30 and Munster at 14.45 , on Sunday we take on South East at 10am and Ulster at 3pm.

The following Saturday (May 21st) as I am sure you all know by now we have our annual Ball in the Hilton - Amy Armstrong and Vinno are doing a super job organising what will be a brilliant night out and what is an essential fundraiser for the club. If you are on the fence...get off it and get your name on the guest list!

Good luck to everyone playing this weekend and see you all at the Ball!

ps - Dont forget the AGM is on June 24th in The Dropping Well
