Murroe Boher Bord na nOg had a very busy Easter. We had 92 boys and Girls who attended our 3-day Easter Camp on the Astro Turf last week. Most Campers received new Windcheater’s and Club Socks. On the Final day of the camp, all of our campers took part in TLC4, which helped to keep our pitch and its environs very tidy. On Friday 30th March and Saturday 31st March, we held our annual bag pack in Dunnes Stores on Childers Road. We collected nearly €3,100, and the Bord na nOg are very thankful to all who supported and helped out over the weekend. On Friday 06th April, our u11’s & u12’s played 3 games in Croke Park, as well as a Museum Tour, and a trip to Supermacs on the way home. Finally, the Bord na nOg, would like to wish Harry Clohessy the best of luck, representing the Club in the POC Fada in the Greyhound stadium on Saturday evening.
