It’s been a busy few weeks at the start of what is the Clubs Centenary year. Last weekend we hosted our Centenary Launch Night in O’Gradys in which we previewed the History of Thomas McCurtains Book. It was a fantastic night and it was great to see so many faces that have been part of the Club going all the way back to the 1950s. Next up is the Dinner Dance at the end of the month and details on tickets are below.
The Camogie AGM took place earlier in January and the following officers were elected:
President – Jimmy Sheridan
Chair – Paddy Coman
Vice Chair – Richard Lally

On the pitch the action has already started with the Senior Hurlers beating Fr Murphys in a Preliminary Championship match a few weeks ago. The Ladies Footballers and Camogs are also back in training for the upcoming season with the rest of the teams returning to training later this month.
At county level McCurtains are proud to have Dean Corrigan and Ciaran McCauley on the London Hurling Panel and Tommy Clarke and Rob Reid on the London Football Panel for the National Leagues.
Lastly, best wishes to footballer and camogie player Fiona McGovern as she heads home to start a new adventure from all of us here at McCurtains. A true club woman who we’re sure will be keeping tabs on us in the future!
