The Annual Harps GAA St. Stephen’s Day Tournament is on this Thursday morning, December 26th at The Harps GAA grounds in Cullohill at 10.45am. This year the Club are hosting a football tournament with donations on the day going towards “The Friends of Shane Walsh” fundraiser and towards the cost of a defibrillator for the Club, so it is certainly well worth supporting. The tournament promises to be great craic featuring a mix of current and former players and some who are confused as to which group they belong to! Following a committee meeting on Sunday evening, the following teams were selected by the five managers vying to be crowned champions on Thursday… (see below for fixtures and tournament rules)
