Tyrone v Louth – Healy Park will host Tyrone’s All-Ireland qualifer game this Saturday at 2.30pm. All club members who are available to assist with stewarding duties, shops and programme selling etc are asked to report to the grounds for 12.30pm. Good luck to all the club’s senior players involved.

Minor defeat – Hard luck to Danny Mullan and Riane Samir and the Tyrone minors after last weekend’s championship loss.

League defeats – The problems of playing ‘starred’ league games was highlighted last weekend with losses for the senior and reserve teams against Errigal Ciaran. The reserves and U21s will continue to pack in hectic schedules with the U21s in championship action on Tuesday past while many of the same players are expected to line out in the reserve championship semi-final on Friday evening against Clonoe in Dunmoyle (7.30pm) and again next Tuesday in the U21 championship against Greencastle at Healy Park. A good support would be appreciated by the players. There is no senior action this weekend.

Féile success – Last weekend was a memorable one for the club with the staging of All-Ireland Féile na nGael group games in Healy Park and St. Patrick’s Park. The highlight was the visit of Barrow Rangers from Kilkenny and many new friendships were forged over the weekend between our U14 players and the visitors. Many thanks to all the host families and those who worked hard behind the scenes to provide hospitality to the players and supporters who came to Healy Park over the weekend. Thanks also to the many sponsors who generously contributed to the event and to those who worked as stewards at the grounds and assisted with making the BBQ on Saturday evening a great success. The St. Enda’s boys reached the Shield semi-final while our visitors qualified for the Cup final on Sunday.

U12 football – The U12 footballers continue with their Go Games blitzes on Monday evenings and next Monday they travel to Carrickmore. Training as usual on Friday evening in Healy Park from 6.15pm.

Camogie – The club’s camogie players also train on Friday evening at 6.15pm in St. Patrick’s Park and will attend a blitz in Edendork on Saturday. Please contact Ann Cunningham for details.

U16 football – U16 football training has commenced and all players interested in playing in the forthcoming league should attend training in St. Patrick’s Park on Friday from 4.45pm. Newcomers welcome.

Sympathy – The club extends sympathy to the familes of the late Annie Williamson (nee Gormley) of Sperrin Drive,  the late Rev Harry McGale, son of the club’s first chairman Frank McGale, and the late Mary McCrossan, grandmother of senior player Cara McCrossan.
