We have a lot to offer locally and businesses in Kilmore should benefit as well as all our neighbouring clubs will also be hosting visiting teams and supporters.

To make the weekend a success we will need support from the parents of the players taking part and we hope that all parents will get involved to support both clubs for this event. To help with the costs we will be running 2 "breakfast mornings" in the Community Hall during April & May and look forward to your support for those.
