On a related issue, there will be a club social night in Murtaghs where both sides will be presented with their league medals following last year’s table-topping promotion successes.  This should be a great night with food & entertainment all provided on the night.  There is no cover charge for the night but there will be a donations box at the door with all proceeds going to GOAL’s Haiti Appeal.
