They in turn would have to hand it over to the Department of Education for a new school to be build on the site.

Our Community festival starts on Saturday 14th Aug with a parade up to the Bogies. We are asking all members of the club to give a hand in some way during the seven days of activities.

It’s your club and your week, please don’t leave it to the faithful few to do all the work. Be an active part of your club and not a hurler on the ditch as we have six teams playing in that league. Contact Johnny Smithers (sn) or Harry Byrne on the club reception 01 868 6209 to find out how you could get involved.

Club Committes

Over the last year the club has been developing our website to make it easier for our members to renew their subs, play the club lotto and keep up to date all upcoming club events & news.

The site has come along way but it is only the beginning and we hope to add many more useful features over the next little while. We’d like to say a BIG thank you to Frank Hand, who volunteered over the last couple of years to keep the site up to date.

Without him we wouldn’t of had the foundations to develop the club website further. We are grateful for Franks’ contribution as it was very much appreciated by the club members and Cabra community. We would also like to thank Terry Carton who set up our first web page.
