As the curtain comes down on 2017 we can look back on what was a truly memorable and successful year for the Corduff club across all codes whether it be men, ladies or handball the club was vibrant and exciting and all that's positive about the GAA was evident throughout the season. Many highs were celebrated especially the successful journey of the Senior Ladies to the All Ireland Final, not to mention juvenile county champions at U12/U14 level, the Senior Reserve teams and many Handball winners. To all our members, our loyal Corduff supporters, our sponsors across all codes and to the wider Corduff Raferagh community we wish you all a very happy, peaceful Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous 2018. Nollaig shona agus athbhliain faoi mhaise daoibh go leir.
Christmas Day Swim:
Carrickmacross Emmets Christmas Day Swim is in its 37th year this year with all proceeds going to the Shane McMahon Beneficiary Fund for Motor Neuron Disease. Shane was diagnosed with Motor Neuron disease in October. The GAA community in Monaghan and beyond is supporting this event and massive thanks is extended to Corduff's John Finlass,Donal Crossan, Declan Crossan,Noel Crossan and fellow referee of Shane's Martin McNally who are going to brave the elements on Christmas Day for this worthy cause. All proceeds go directly to this fund so we urge you all to dig deep and support this fundraiser.
