CONGRATULATIONS to Jamesie Donnelly who was selected in the Ulster Legends Team (having played in the Railway Cup) to play Kilkenny in Nolan Park Next month.
However, Jamesie has an even bigger day ahead with his wedding so he is unable to take part in the game and had to withdraw. This is obviously a great honor for Jamesie to have earned such a prestigious acknowledgment and for the club also. Once again, well done Jamesie and every best wishes with your wedding to Claire next month.
