The Superleague Committee have made the difficult decision to postpone the 50th anniversary dinner that was due to happen next Saturday the 29th of September. In the planning of the event a number of our members from the past 50 years got in touch and some of them (including some abroad) were unable to make it on short notice. In order to have the best celebration of the clubs history we are going to move the celebration to the end of the season and give people as much time as possible to plan attending.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused. For anyone who is looking to fill next Saturday evening the super league team still play their home opener at 4pm in UCD and we’d invite everyone to the bar in UCD postgame to mark the start of such a special year for the club.
