The juvenile club is holding its annual Bag Packing in Dunnes Stores on Friday evening July 1st and all day Saturday July 2nd. Every family which has a player involved with Kilruane MacDonaghs from U-6 up to U-16 has been contacted and will be expected to commit at least one parent for a two hour stint on either day. This was a tremendous success last year and even greater parental participation on this occasion should see last year’s returns surpassed.
