WELL done to all of our competitors in the Scór Sinsear County Final on Sunday evening. Honours for the evening go to Roisin Sloan who won the recitation. We also had runners up in the Ballad Group and Novelty Act. Thanks to everyone who helped in any way with Scór this year and good luck to Roisin as she heads for the Ulster Semi-Final writes Mark McGrath.
Juvenile coaching resumes this Thursday evening in the hall. P1 and P2 from 6:30-7:10pm and P3 and P4 from 7:15-8:00pm. Everyone is welcome, even if you haven’t been there before. Parents must stay with the children at the first session and we encourage you to get involved and enjoy the coaching with the wee ones. The aim of these sessions is that the boys and girls have fun and at the same time pick up the fundamentals of our game.
This Saturday will be the final chance to register for the year ahead. The club will be open from 12-2pm, or alternatively you can contact the registrar directly at 07841194077. Thanks to all those who have registered so far and with the new season getting very close, it is important for all playing and non-playing members to be up to date with their registration.
U-16 and U-14 boys training continues each Monday and Friday at the Red High.
U-12-s starts this Friday at this venue at 4:20pm. Any U-12s who cannot attend should contact Mark.
Congratulations to the handball players from St Patrick’s PS who played in the Ulster finals on Saturday. Rhys Cunningham and Aodhán Harney were narrowly defeated in the U-13 doubles final, Philip Doran was beaten in the U-13 semi-final by the eventual champion and Tom McNeill & Sean Fitzsimons lost out in the U11 doubles. While the boys may be disappointed with this, they are all still Cuman na mBunscol County champions.
The club wishes the St Patrick’s Grammar School team all the best in their McLarnon semi-final, especially club players Callum Mahoney, Ciarán Harney, Sam Burns & Mark McGrady. Hopefully by this stage they will have reached the final!
The club is currently selling advertising boards for around the pitch. If you are interested, or know of anyone who would be interested in purchasing one, please contact the club and we will get back to you immediately.
Keep the 17 March free as we will be having a day of ‘ceol agus craic’ at the club. The club will be open from 3pm with stew, music, etc.
The club passes its condolences on to the family of the late Gerry Braniff, former player and loyal club supporter over many years who passed away last week. Our Lady Queen of the Gael, pray for him.
