Operation TransFAUGHSmation: Last Friday we had a great class with our Senior Player Dermot McArdle who along with John Paul Mone and Keith Hill ran their new concept Ramfit; feedback on the night was excellent and we wish the lads well as they get ready to roll out their concept to other fitness groups. This Tuesday we will have circuits as normal with Friday evening class see Janet Keenan completing her Pilates Class; this is always an excellent class. On Sunday we will start the countdown to the McMahons Supervalu 5K run for the participants of OPTFM, with only a few weeks to go we would ask you to keep the encouragement going so that we get as many people to complete the 5K as possible, if you have missed a few sessions make sure you get back this week, don’t worry everyone falls off the horse every so often.
