Skerries Harps to roll out the blue carpet

BIG day at the sea-side next Sunday.

Skerries Harps will officially open their new clubhouse.

The ceremony will begin at High Noon.

In the afternoon, the Dublin senior ladies footballers and the Dublin senior camogie teams will be in action.

It will be a proud occasion for Harps hero, Lyndsey Davey, the captain of the Jackies.

It will recall the memorable night when another famous Skerries captain, Bryan Cullen, brought home Sam.

The presence of the Dublin camogie side will highlight the huge contribution of another Harps hero, Denis Murphy, to the sport. He managed the Dubs with distinction.

Last Sunday week, Jim Gavin brought the Dubs to town. Dublin played Galway as part of the new clubhouse celebrations. The legendary Bobby Beggs was rememebered.

Bobby played for Galway and the Dubs.

He's a folk hero of the coast.

All were impressed with the club's splendid new facility.
