Club captain Joe Cooper sends his sincere thanks to all who inundated him yesterday with birthday greetings. Joe says there are far too many for him to reply to (we think he is more worried about the cost!). Joe says he feels even younger than ever and is very much looking forward to the return of all to Santry later in the season. He has the watch at the ready and the biggest bundle of club lotto envelopes ever seen! Nil desperandum.
