The Club is very well supported by the local community, and we try to reciprocate by supporting the local community in every way possible.
During the playing season, the Club grounds are a hive of activity with games, training, supporters, walkers and visitors.
We progressed again to senior hurling in 2011, but unfortunately due to the economic downturn and resulting emigration of many of our club players; we went back down to intermediate the following year.
We are currently competing in Intermediate football.
2010 was our best year yet on the playing field winning 6 County Championship titles and a number of League titles.
