Club Notes - 10th November 2008
On Saturday evening past, the identity of the celebrity manager was revealed when comedian/TV presenter Patrick Kielty walked into the dressing rooms to a warm welcome from the players and committee.
For the past few weeks their has been various people named to who would be the manager with Graham Norton and Darragh O’Brien being leading candidates.
Without doubt Kielty is a fabulous catch with his experience playing minor football with his native Down back in the late eighties, he didn’t hang about with the introductions as sent the team out into the rain for their first training session.
Assisting him for the programme will be London born Paul Hehir who will do some training sessions with the next two being this Wednesday and Thursday.
Any club members who are available on Wednesday evening or Thursday during the day are welcome to come down to Tir Chonaill Park to watch the recording.
