71 patrons have now pledged €3,800. We have patrons from Chicago, Kilkenny, Dublin, Laois, Shannon Rovers, Burgess, Nenagh and all corners of the parish. In this year, the Centenary of the 1916 Rising, we are looking for a minimum of 100 patrons, so we need 29 more people to come on board. For as little as €50 you too can become part of club history by becoming a patron. All patrons will be acknowledged in the publication. In future years your children and grandchildren will be very proud that you answered the call in 2016. “Kilruane MacDonaghs 1970-2013, Heirs to a Proud Tradition,” will be launched on Friday, 14th October by Len Gaynor.
The club extends sympathy to the family of the late Frances Gleeson, Ardcroney.
