Happy New Year to all club members, supporters, and all in the community. 2020 has been a tough one, but here's hoping that 2021 is better in all sorts of ways. Stay safe, and remember that we're here to help if anybody needs it during the latest Level 5 restrictions.
As we move into Level 5 restrictions again, we would like to let everyone in the Parish know that just as with previous lockdowns, members of Ferns St. Aidans are available to give a helping hand in any way we can.
If anybody needs assistance, please call Eoin Gethings at 087 9487845.
