Orphans in Sri Lanka wear Carnew Jerseys   03/12/2010

The attached photogragh shows a 'team' of young Sri Lankan children wearing Carnew Emmets jerseys. The jerseys were donated by the club to the 'Sri lanka Orphanage Fund' at the request of the charity's parton, Mr Brian Brennan of Brennan Hotel Group. The following message was recieved today from Brian, who is currently in Sri Lanka with the kids...

"Still over here visiting the 6 orphanages and 3 colleges that we built over the last few years

The young boys were absolute delighted with your jerseys that you sent over and we also brought out some hurls for the kids and they took to the hurling like a duck to water. With their cricket skills they found the catching and striking very easy to pick up. We had a great day with them yesterday

Again many thanks to you and all the committee in Carnew for your kind present"
