The club moto "Ni neart go cur le cheile "
Edward Sheridan, former chairman and the driving force behind the purchase and development of the leisure centre and pitches signed off his "chairman's address" in a book about the club in early 1980’s with the phrase Nil neart gan cur le cheile. During the design stage of the crest it was felt that this is was good and fitting moto for our club. It also ensures that Edwards philosophy and legacy continues to drive and motivate our members... the literal meaning of the phrase is " There is no strength without coming together" or "Our strength is our unity"
