Parnells Club Notes 18th March19-03-2018


Snow on St Patrick’s Day; who would have thought it!  However, even the coldest of weather didn’t deter our Parnells Parade participants.  Fortune favours the brave and those that ventured into London surely were.  Our Committee, parents and players gathered around the banner with flags and proudly walked amongst all the other gaelic gatherers.  Even numb fingers and toes didn’t prevent the youngsters hopping, passing and soloing the ball. It was a brilliant day enjoyed by all.  A massive thank you to everyone that ventured in to London, to the organisers and to those who braved the coldest of conditions.  We hope everyone had a great St Patrick’s Day weekend, with Ireland’s success in the rugby it added to the festive mood and celebrations.  Certainly a weekend to remember.
