This weekend see the clubrooms host the play “Separate Beds” by Sam Cree which is being held on Friday and Saturday night.  The cast and crew have been busy putting in all the hard work to get the production ready.  This promises to be another great show by our local players which shouldn’t be missed!  Tickets are £7 each and are now on sale for both shows from any committee member or you can pay at the door on each night.  Doors open at 7.30pm and the shows start at 8.00pm.  Check out the St Johns GAC Drama Group Drumnaquoile page on Facebook for up to date information.dn_screen

Every player can harbour ambitions of walking out on the hallowed turf at Croke Park.  Our secretary, Kevin McGlynn, did just that at half time during the club football finals on St Patrick’s Day.  This was through our involvement in the GAA Healthy Clubs initiative of which we are one of eighteen clubs in Ireland leading in that project.

The Action Cancer Big Bus will be coming to our club on Saturday 21 June.  Services provided by the Big Bus include digital breast screening, health promotion and health checks for men and women.

Action Cancer will also be at the club on Tuesday 1 July to carry out men’s MOT health checks.
