MULLINAVAT GAA - Due to the inclement weather all fixtures for this weekend were called off. The games have been re fixed for Friday evening so hopefully the weather will have improved sufficiently and allow the fixtures to take place. The senior football team had a good 9 point victory over O Loughlin Gales in the championship recently. A big thanks from the club to all those who took part in the recent Fantasy Cheltenham fundraiser. Even though there were a few technical problems the club hopes everybody enjoyed making their selections and seeing how they ran. Your participation has put much needed revenue into the clubs funds to defray the running costs of the club.
