Security Message from Club Chairperson
Measures are being implemented that will improve Security policies for Training and Match day events. However on specific occasions at Pairc Ui Mhurchu where social or other events are taking place, we do need volunteers to patrol the car park area. If sufficient people volunteer for this work, it is envisaged that they would only be called upon twice a year [max] for such security. Training & security detail will be provided as part of this programme. Could people advise our General Manager, Noel Sheridan at 087 2933829 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you wish to become a volunteer. In this regard, as Chairman, I have put my own name forward as a volunteer.
