New Kit: Early on this year O’Connells teamed up with Supervalu Dundalk so that if you spent €30 in store you got a token and this token was put towards anew kit for our underage team. Well last week the kids were presented with their new O’Connells kit which looks great (picture up on facebook). So a big thank you to all who shopped in Supervalu and placed a token for our club also well done to Jackie Agnew and David Dunne for setting up the process.
