Charleville GAA has much to look for­ward to

THE mem­bers of Charleville GAA Club are ea­gerly look­ing for­ward to the forth­com­ing club ac­tiv­i­ties both on and off the field.

The In­ter­me­di­ate team will take to the hal­lowed sod of Sem­ple Sta­dium on Sun­day, Jan­uary 20 to take on the Le­in­ster cham­pi­ons, Graigue-Bal­ly­callan, in the All-Ire­land In­ter­me­di­ate Club semi-fi­nal. The Kilkenny side will be pow­ered by the leg­endary Ed­die Bren­nan, the multi-All-Ire­land and Le­in­ster medal win­ner with the Kilkenny county se­nior team.

Now in his 40th year, Ed­die still has the ap­petite for the game and the Charleville boys know that they are up against it in this All-Ire­land semi-fi­nal de­cider, against a team who will be just as hun­gry for suc­cess as them­selves. But the North Cork men will their wear their tag of Mun­ster cham­pi­ons lightly, but with pride, be wor­thy rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Cork hurl­ing, and will not be found want­ing on the day, as they showed against Clare County’s Feakle in the Mun­ster fi­nal in Lim­er­ick’s Gaelic Grounds last No­vem­ber.

Off the field the club mem­bers are also look­ing for­ward to their ma­jor fund-raiser, which oc­curs in March, when the club will host a ‘Hol­ly­wood Comes to Charleville’ night at the Charleville Park Ho­tel.

There will be an in­for­ma­tion night for this event on this Fri­day night at the afore­men­tioned ho­tel, where all the de­tails will be re­vealed, and they will be look­ing for bud­ding stars of stage and screen to act out scenes from the fa­mous films.

They will also be pre­par­ing to cel­e­brate the many vic­to­ries of the club’s hurlers and foot­ballers on the field of play over 2018 at their vic­tory din­ner and dance on the 15th Fe­bru­ary, which is also on at the Charleville Park Ho­tel. The tick­ets for what should be a mo­men­tous oc­ca­sion are presently on sale from any club mem­ber or from the ho­tel re­cep­tion.
