Meets: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8pm in the Parish Centre
About the club: It is open to all members of the parish, whether beginners or experienced players, and new members are always welcome. The minimum age for joining the Senior Club is 16. The annual sub is €110 for a full member but a lot less for students. In the 2012/13 season year we had three league teams, two ladies’ teams and one men’s team, playing in the Leinster Branch of the Badminton Union of Ireland. The first ladies won their section which was a great accomplishment for the club.

Indoor Bowls Club
Meets: Wednesdays and Fridays, 7.30pm in the Parish Centre
About the club: In the 2012/13 season we had 40 members – parishioners have an automatic right to become members and others by invitation only. We entered five competitions involving 20 members plus subs in the Churches League, which is played at night. The Ladies Team won the Hope Cup and our second Mixed Team were runners up in the Price Cup. We also entered two teams in the Afternoon league (active retirement).
We welcome new members who will get every assistance in learning the rules of the game. Whilst we are competitive, we are also a social club and do not take ourselves too seriously.

Meets: Wednesdays, 7.15pm, for weekly rehearsal and sings at the 10.30am service on Sundays.
About the choir: It is a four-part, robed choir with a varied repertoire. New members are always welcome.
Meets: Pairs of volunteers take turns twice a month to clean the church brasses, usually after the 11am Communion service on Wednesdays.

About the rota: Volunteers serve coffee and tea in the Parish Centre after the 10.30am service. The more people who put their names down on the rota list on the Parish Centre noticeboard, the less often everybody will have to do it.
About the rota: More volunteers are always needed for the roster to do the flowers in the church twice yearly. No experience necessary.
