All Roads Lead to the Hill This Weekend
The commencement of our festival takes place this weekend and it promises to be a great week for the parish and wider community. There is a great buzz in the air and with the arrival of Corks fittest superstars on Saturday and the legend that is Davy Fitzgerald it will certainly be one for the ages. All the teams are training hard and looking forward to putting themselves to the test. If you are around the village please do drop in to the pitch. Admission is €10 per adult and €5 per child and you pay no more than €20 for a family. It promises to be great value and crack. For those adults who pay the €10 they will also avail of the marquee that evening with the band footloose playing. Corks fittest superstars will be unique to Cork and we are really looking forward to welcoming all the competitors.
