Please note the Lost Property is piling high in the function room, so please have a quick look there are a lot of very good items for claiming.

A bit of a blow from Texaco Garage on Abbey Road, they say they can no longer keep a stock of the floodlight cards. Members who have been using the garage for their cards, email me in advance and I can leave them on the Notice Board for you.  Hewetts’ newsagent and Goggins’ pub in Monkstown village still stock the cards, we much appreciate their cooperation.

Stephen had his last session with our local Speacial Needs children last Thursday and they are deeply appreciative of allowing them use our courts. Stephen went to the school and presented them with medals, they were so chuffed!!
