This Sunday Cahir will be alive for the very successful annual field day.

This is always a great family occasion with lots of activities for young and old. It is the culmination of a lot of voluntary work by Cahir GAA Club members and their families.

Last year the day featured pig racing for the first time, and this year new pigs are in training for the big occasion. Entrance on the day is just €5 per family. There will be numerous sideshows, games, hurling and football blitzes, music, teas, barbecue, pig on a spit as well as the pig races. Let’s hope for a fine day, a big crowd and fun for all.
