The Club Burgee
It is often asked what the club burgee/logo represents. Known lovingly from inside the club as 'The flying Pig' the burgee represents the Wild Boar that was on the crest of the Magennis clan who built the 'New Castle'. The colours are said to represent the Boar jumping from a green field into the summer sunshine.
An official actual cloth burgee is available at special request from the Commodore - £20.00
