Robertstown G.F.C. Sponsored St. Stephen’s Day Swim.

The Club is organising a Sponsored Swim in the Grand Canal on St. Stephen’s Day at 12 noon. Please support the members who will take the plunge and help to raise much needed money for the Club.

Sponsorship Cards will be distributed during the week. A Fun Football Challenge will be held that afternoon to help blow away any over indulgences of the previous day.

Happy Birthday and Congratulations to Gretta Moran who celebrated a notable milestone with a great party in Allenwood Hall recently surrounded by her family and friends .
