Friday Night Lights!
Fr Rocks 125 Weekend celebrations got underway on Friday night, with a series of events hosted at Paddy Cullen Park to celebrate this landmark year. A challenge match was played between Fr Rocks and Granemore St Mary's from Armagh. A club with strong links to Fr Rock. We would like to thank the Granmore club for taking part in the challenge game. The game was followed by a BBQ and live music in the marquee. We would like to thank Liam McSloy and the other musicians for providing the live music.

Sunday Fun Day.
The celebrations continued into Sunday, when the day began with a special club mass, followed by a parade through the town. A fun day was held at Paddy Cullen Park, which proved to be a big hit with the kids. There was a penalty kick competition, bouncy castles, kids trains and live music provided by Donal Canavan and Ryan McGarrity. The evening saw a special challenge game between a Fr Rocks legends select and some of the current team. With the legends running out winners on a scoreline of 4:08 to 2:11. It was a great weekend and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved.

Special thanks to our hard working 125 fun day sub committee of Sharon, Ita and Heather, thanks also to our club sponsor Dominic Crilly for his support. We would like to thank everyone involved in a great weekend, from those who provided the music, the bands in the parade, Mulligan Bar and everyone who played a part in the various events that have helped make our 125 Year one to remember.
