Wild Geese's joy over new RTé radio slot

GOOD news for the Wild Geese hurlers. They will become a regular feature on the John Murray RTé 1 radio show.

"We are delighted," said Aidan Lenehan, the man behind the acclaimed book on the club, There Is An F In Hurling.

"We were selected as one of the underdogs for the show. The programme will monitor our performance, pay us regular visits and provide us with a celebrity coach for a few sessions," added Aidan.

"We are the first Dublin club to be chosen for the show and we got the nod because of the book and our ongoing progress.

"The programme has a listenership of 315,000, so this is a huge boost for us and indeed hurling in the Fingal area."

pIT'S lift-off in Coolock. Parnell's have launched their Summer Camp. They'll run in July and August. There will be two age categories: four- to five-year-olds (10am to 12.30pm) and six- to 11-year-olds (10am to 2pm).

The emphasis will be on skills development for boys and girls in big ball and small. And on having fun, meeting new friends and building self-confidence.

There will be outings to Tayto Park, Croke Park and other venues, plus other fun activities like arts and crafts, dance and drama.

Registration forms are at the clubhouse or you can register at the Parnell's club every Saturday morning (11.30).

Prices are reasonable. There are also easy-payment plans. Parnell's appreciate the support of their good friends, the Coolock/Artane Credit Union.

pIT'S been billed as The Row In The Cow. It's a joint Round Tower and Clondalkin Rugby club production.

The White Collar Boxing event takes place this Saturday at the Red Cow Complex. It's the talk of the village.

Olympic boxer Cathal O'Grady has been preparing the fighters from both clubs. The profiles have been posted.

The boxers are well able to talk the talk.

But can they match it when they climb into the ring? Tickets available from both clubs.
