We are delighted with the response to date as in a space of just over two months 226 ‘Blocks’ have been bought. Many thanks to all .
We are amazed and honoured that so many former members, players, supporters and people from the community still hold the club in such high esteem and have generously contributed.
In addition our current membership, players and parents have similarly contributed.
At present we are preparing to issue an acknowledgement certificate to all as a way of saying ‘Thanks’ and have arranged for a ‘Party Night’ in the clubhouse on Saturday, October 31 (All are welcome). We will hold the draw for a prize of €1,000 on the night with some more additional prizes to be won.
Finally, if you have not yet bought ‘A Block’ or if you know of a friend, family member, neighbour or a former ’Boro Person’ who might be away please encourage them to buy. We are proud and blessed to have such fantastic facilities at Palmerstown which is a testament to all past and present.

Again, a thousand thanks to all. Yours in Sport
