All roads lead to Killarney this week with our Ballad Group and Gareth in the All Ireland Scór final in the Gleneagles hotel on Saturday. With a large crowd of family, friends and supporters, there’ll be plenty of cheering for Down’s representatives in the finals, with Burren in the quiz section too. It will certainly be difficult to surpass the performances at the Ulster final, but we know that they can do it! Adh mór to Gareth, Angela, Catherine, Grainne and Katelyn.

Thankfully we’ll now see some action on the field. We are still looking to ensure the grounds are ship shape, so please, if you can, lend a hand. Over the next couple of weeks, we’re hoping to paint the gates and clubhouse. An hour of your time during the brighter evenings would be very much appreciated. The gates need stripped before painting and there’s a scraper at the gates, if you could take twenty minutes at any time to help.
