Fitzgerald set to train Wild Geese juniors

BANNER boss, Davy Fitzgerald, will be in Oldtown on Wednesday, July 31 (6.30-8.30pm).

He will conduct a training session with the Wild Geese junior hurlers.

"Everybody is welcome to come along," says club official Aidan Lenehan.

Fitzgerald's visit to the North County is part of the John Murray RTé Radio 1 show, where the Wild Geese feature as one of the underdog clubs.

"We are the first Dublin club to be on the programme," adds Aidan, whose book, There Is An F In Hurling, has gone into its second print run, with all the proceeds going to juvenile hurling in the club.



ST PEREGRINE'S are holding The Gathering on the All-Ireland Hurling weekend, September 6.

All past and present Peregrine's members are invited to attend.

A special committee has been set up to make sure it can be as memorable an occasion as possible.

The Blakestown Road will be busy.



CIARáN FARRELLY is one of the top forwards in Dublin football. He has scored a harvest of goals and points for Thomas Davis over the years.

The Tallaght club have been a leading light in the ASAP initiative – Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention.

They do splendid work in this area, as the GAA urges all to press ahead in the battle to reduce the harm caused by alcohol and drugs throughout the association.

Recently, the Thomas Davis ASAP committee presented the club's senior football team with a new set of jerseys.

Ciarán accepted the kind gesture on behalf of his team-mates, who continue to cheer the Kiltipper Road with their pace and their polish.
