CIARA LAWLOR MEMORIAL 5K
Well done to everybody that got involved in today's 'Run with Ciara' . Your efforts raised almost €2k to contribute to the Ciara Lawlor Memorial fundraiser for Ataxia Foundation Ireland. The run also produced a healthy competitive edge too with midfield maestro Jack Nolan coming in first. It was great to see some of our Juvenile players putting it up to the senior players too with some even bettering them!!. Something that might have raised an eyebrow our two of management!!! Thanks to the lads from Thomastown GAA Club joining us too and to all who got involved. Great morning...well done all.

NOT ALL SUPERHEROS WEAR CAPES
Quick thinking by club superheroes John Skehan and Paddy Greene saved our parish GAA club from serious fire damage in Saturday morning. Rumours afoot the lads were in watching the Royal Wedding were unfounded as we all know they were getting the place ready for Sunday's big match supporters!
Another year of sponsorship of our adult teams with Pat Robert Carrollwas sealed tonight when Pat Carroll (centre Left) made a presentation to Club Chairman Brian Murphy (Centre Right) of new jerseys. Also in the picture is Snr Team Manager Niall Bergin (left) and Adult Teams Development Officer Donal O'Dwyer (Right) a long with a trio of future laochra Gaeil. Now all we need is a game to go to
It was another great weekend for our County Teams and O’Loughlin Gaels were again well represented. On Saturday the minors accounted for the Wexford challenge at Nowlan Park and Conor Kelly, Jamie Young, David Fogarty and Niall Higgins all involved. By the games end O’Loughlins had no less then three representatives on the field of play. Then on Sunday Paddy Deegan had another solid performance in the black & amber jersey to overcome Offaly’s attempt to overturn the cats on home soil. Well done all.
