The monthly club meeting takes place this Thursday 28th at 9.00PM in the clubhouse - note change of date. 

We made our exit from the Intermediate Championship losing 0-11 to 0-8 to St Johns in the semi-final last Sunday. The Gaels never reached the standards of previous games scoring only two points from play and eight overall which was never going to be enough to win a championship game. However the team continues to develop and with a number of younger players making the breakthrough this year added to the experience of the older players, success at this level is not far away. The team was: Mark Tuohy, Colin Harte, Declan Willis, Keith McMorrow, Ciaran O'Connor, Paul Higgins, Conor Merrick, Liam O'Connell, Joe Henry (0-1), Daire Kearns, Frank Quinn, Andrew Flynn, Johnny Quinn (0-1), David Quinn (0-3), Joe Quinn (0-3). Subs: Karl McKenna for C Merrick, Darragh Hailstones for D Kearns, Gavin McMorrow for C Harte (inj), Michael Kilkenny for Johnny Quinn, Brian Boyd for Joe Quinn. Thanks to the team for their commitment this year and to Manager, John McPartland and his backroom team, Seamus Cawley and Hilary Lyons and Physio Wayne McNulty. 

Preparations are well underway for ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ with the dancers busy with rehearsals for the 17th November date in the Clayton Hotel - put the date in your diary. 

The minor team take on Tubbercurry at home this Friday at 6.00PM in the A Shield semi-final. 

The club wish to express sympathy with Sean Davey and family and the Marren family on the tragic death of Mairead Davey last week. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
