50th Anniversary

Bandon Athletic Club was founded in 1964 and so is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014.
This will be marked with a number of events.
– Firstly, there is an Open Night in the Lodge Bar on the 30th of Jan, this was the date that the club was formed in the old Boys Club on North Main Street, so a number of past and current members will be meeting at that spot (opposite ChristChurch) at 7:50pm and then proceeding to the Lodge for 8pm. The open night is open to all current and past members
