Club Merchandise 
Fr Rocks have released a new range of gear to help celebrate our 125th anniversary. The gear was designed by pupils in Holy Trinity College and includes special colours to remember the various clubs who came to form Fr Rocks. We have red to celebrate the Geraldine's club, as well as the club Navy and light blue. A special 125 badge has also been designed, and the gear contains the names of the various clubs, going back to the Brian Ogs. The gear including half zip tops, hoodies and training tops is now on sale at Intersport. 

Club 125 celebrations 
Next year will be a very special one in the History of the club and Fr Rocks are busy planning a series of events to mark our 125 year. A special 125 booklet will be produced, highlighting the history of the club. Members of the 125 committee are busy researching in the O'Fiach library in Armagh, and putting together the history of the club. We have already unearthed some great information, and occasionally upload some of it onto our facebook/ twitter page to wet the appetite, so keep an eye out over the next few weeks as you might see some old friends or relatives appearing in the posts. Also if anyone has any old pictures, photographs, match reports, please contact us, as they would be very useful for the upcoming booklet. They will be returned in the same condition as soon as we get a photograph of them. Please keep an eye out on the club website and facebook/twitter accounts this week, with details of the 125 dinner and golf classic to be announced.
