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.
