St. Patrick's "Night at the Dogs"
25th February 2012
Our Night at the Dog's is approaching fast! We hope at this stage, most people have got their tickets. A big thank you to everyone who purchased them so far, and we hope many more of you will do so in the very near future. Tickets are €10, which includes your entry on the night, and also entry to the draw, 1st prize is €1,000, 2nd €500 and 3rd €300. On the night, not only do we have the greyhound racing to contend with, we also have an additional human race! They might not be as fast, but lets be in no doubt, they will be every bit as competitive as the dogs. Also, for the smaller children (under 12's) we have a St. Patrick's themed fancy dress. We would urge as many children to take part as possible, and obviously, it won't be in vain, as there will be prizes for it. For the elegant ladies of Ballygarvan, which there are many, we have a best dressed ladies competition.
All proceeds on the night go to help to improve our facilities for our players and members. Thank you to everyone for your continued support for our great club!
The date for your diary is: Friday 16th March, Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium, at 7.45pm.

Ballygarvan host club for Féile Peil na nÓg 2011
Ballygarvan has been chosen as one of 48 host clubs for the Féile Peil na nÓg 2011 which is being held in Cork this year. The festival is taking place from Friday 17th of June to Sunday 19th of June.
Féile Peil na nÓg is a national festival of Gaelic football for boys and girls under 14 years of age. It was first held in Cavan in 1982, the brainchild of Fintan Tierney of Butlersbridge.
Féile Peil na nÓg places great emphasis and importance on proper participation, presentation, punctuality and sportsmanship. Féile involves the whole community, clubs, schools, social and cultural groups, families, civic and religious authorities. It is recognised by the GAA as a major festival of great importance for the promotion of football among the youth of our country. Féile Peil na nÓg helps to bond communities, forge friendships, provide educational opportunities and unearth new leaders.
