A massive weekend is in store this weekend to coincide with the 127th Anniversary celebrations of Burkes bar. For those who wish to test their general knowledge, there is a table quiz on Friday 2nd Sept commencing at 9pm, tables of 4, €10 per person entry fee with a cup and medals on offer for the smartest in town!
On Saturday 3rd September, for those who wish to try something a bit different; watch your pals being flipped about, have a laugh at those trying to kick a ball from an inflatable bubble then there’s nowhere else to be than in Colemanstown soccer pitch to watch the inaugural bubble soccer tournament which takes place from 4-6pm with a perpetual cup for the winning team kindly sponsored by Frank & Bernie Burke. There has been an overwhelming response to this fun event but there are still 1 or 2 places left for those who wish to join in the fun; remember there are no soccer skills required but you must book in advance by contacting 087 9858675. The legendary Joe Hession will provide the music on the night followed by DJ Tom Broderick who will keep everyone rocking til late. Our 50/50 draw also takes place on Saturday night so if you haven’t placed your €2 in that conspicuous green envelope, do so by Saturday night. Don’t forget, you can also subscribe to the 50/50 draw for the year by paying €24 to any club member. Indeed the entire weekend’s fun and activities is generously and significantly sponsored by the Burke family who have continued to be long-standing supporters of the club since its foundation.
The weekend finishes on Sunday 4th with food whilst watching the All Ireland hurling final. For anyone who might need a little ‘cure’ on Sunday Burkes is the place to be.
