Due to the forthcoming visit of US Vice President, Joe Biden, the following should be noted: - there will be no traffic movement in the Park between 23.00 and 07.00 21-26 june inclusive and all gates to the Park will be shut between those hours. - there will be no parking at any time on the Chestefield Avenue 21-26 june incl. The latter may have significant impact on the cricket club car parks in Phoenix and Civil Service as the public will use these car parks and the Camogie Rd. All visiting clubs should take note of these restrictions, travel in as few cars as possible and give themselves plenty of time to get to Phoenix or Civil Service.

Early leader Jack McGee of Rush has slipped down to 13th place.

Our Fixtures Secretary has a provisional list while the frost is still hard on the ground, while the evenings are still dark at 4pm. And then the logistical planning, the protracted negotiations and the brownie point building begins.

This year we had seven cricket blitzes being held for pupils in both 4th & 5th classes during the month of May and also a girl’s blitz for 5th/ 6th Classes.
