The Rockhill Bruree Sportsfield Development Committee will hold a Car Booth Sale on this Saturday, May 26th, at the Old Creamery Yard between O’Rourkes Cross and Bruree village.

The sale is open to the public from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm and admission is just €2 for adults. Children are admitted free. Tea and refreshments will be available.


There will be a pilgrimage to Knock on Saturday, June 2nd. The fare is just €7 per person and names and fares should be handed to Ann Mockler (063-90564)


Golf Classic: Bruree GAA in conjunction with Bruree Golf Society will hold a Golf Classic at Charleville Golf Club on Friday, June 1st next. This will be the club’s main fundraising event for 2012 and it is hoped that the event will generate the funding required to maintain club services to an appropriate standard.
The club competes at Senior and Junior level in hurling and Intermediate level in football. We also have a vibrant Juvenile GAA Club, catering for both boys and girls in hurling and football from Under 8 up to Minor. There are visible signs that the coaching and development of players at all levels is coming to fruition.
The club looks forward to the next couple of years with confidence. There is a great club spirit and there are big plans afoot for the parish sportsfield. The club has a strong core of adult players in both hurling and football and plans are in place to augment these with a new crop of young players coming through from underage level.
There are two ways in which you can support our event.
1. By entering or sponsoring a team. The subscription is just €90 per team of three and the overall winners will receive All-Ireland hurling final tickets and overnight accommodation in Dublin. Team entries to John Carey at 087-2701771.
2. By sponsoring a tee box, your name will be prominently displayed at the tee. Please contact Johnny Wall at 087-1264592.
We look forward to your support for our Golf Classic and thank you for your generous support and assistance in the past.
