Boogie Wonderland, 70s, 80s & 90s Night

Boogie Wonderland Poster
Following on from last year’s hugely enjoyable 80s night and due to popular demand, the club’s Social Committee are once again organising another big night out but this time around we will be ‘Dancing through the Decades’ with music from the 70s, 80s & 90s. Raffle for some great prizes on the night. Also prizes for best costumes, which are entirely optional but great fun.

It’s gonna be a fun-filled night of nostalgia with all your favourite hits with DJ Jimmy Jo spinning the discs. Step back in time and dance the night away to your favourite tunes. Please spread the word about our Boogie Wonderland night with your friends, family & neighbours. Where else would you be going on a Saturday night for just €5?

Calling all ladies who would like to play social non-competitive soccer

The soccer club is delighted to announce that a new Ladies only social game of soccer will commence on Tuesdays from 9-10pm. All ladies are welcome. It’s just for fun and a great chance to get active and have a bit of craic. Cost is just €5 per session. Please contact Vivienne Keane on 087-3499409 for more info. Please spread the word to anyone that might be interested.

Derryleigh One-on-One

This new feature on our Club website & social media gives our members an opportunity to get to know some of the people in and around our Club. You might know their face but the aim is to get people more familiar with each other at the Club and to see what makes people tick and why they’re involved. As you’ll see, the questions are fairly light-hearted and fun and thanks to everyone who agrees to be interviewed. First up under the spotlight is Ailbe Coffey, who was recently granted the honour of being Grand Marshal in the Newport St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This was in recognition of Ailbe being honoured by the Limerick District Schoolboy/Schoolgirl League in October 2017 when he received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to underage soccer in the region at the LDSL Annual Awards ceremony. Check out Ailbe’s One-on-One here.

Soccer Sisters Easter Camp

Soccer Sisters Camp Easter 2018
Our Aviva Soccer Sisters camp is over for another year and it’s safe to say that all 79 girls that made it one of the biggest camps in Ireland had great fun. It was great to see some new faces up in Derryleigh and we hope that some of them might join us next season. Incredibly, we had 13 pairs of actual sisters at the soccer sisters!!! It was our pleasure to host head coach Niall Connolly and their excellent team of FAI coaches including local coaches Vivienne Keane, Jack Noble & Killian O’Malley. Thanks to everyone in the club who once again voluntarily gave up their free time to ensure the success of the camp. Special mention to Gaylord Harvey who co-ordinated the camp and did such a great job ensuring that everything went to plan. Roll on next Easter but in the meantime we have 2 summer camps to look forward to for boys & girls in July & August. We hope all the girls really enjoyed themselves. You were all brilliant. Lots of images from the camp here
