Everyone at Ferrybank GAA club would like to wish Roisin Oates at speedy recovery following her recent operation, and hopefully it won’t be too long before she is back in the green and white jersey.

It’s that time of the year again, where I’m sure your house could do with a spring clean. So if you have any unwanted clothes, paired shoes, belts, handbags, curtains, towels, soft toys etc., or any old mobile phones or laptops (please keep mobile phones and laptops separate from clothing items), you can drop them down to the GAA grounds on Saturday mornings from 10am to 2pm. The closing date will be Saturday April 2nd.
If you have any old hurleys, football boots, helmets, ABP Ferrybank Tops, Ferrybank Half zips that are too small or you do not need any more, you can donate them to Ferrybank GAA club, and we can redistribute these items to members for free. You can hand in to any personnel at the club, or alternatively call Andy Carter 087 135 2455.
