A big thanks to all who supported our recent bag pack fundraiser at Tesco New Ross. Thanks to Mary at Tesco for all her assistance and of course thanks to the ten people from the club who did the all important bag packing. Alex, Mary, Liz, Catherine, George, Ger, Karen, Amanda, Jennifer, and Tracy.
Our neighbouring club Aos Dána held a very successful SBG shoot recently and was well attended with many of our club members in action.
