Notes Journalist Omagh

Good luck boys – A huge good luck to Ciaran McLaughlin, Conor Meyler and the Tyrone U21 squad when they take on Tipperary in the all Ireland Final this Saturday. Outstanding performances from both players has been a huge help to the cause and are a credit to the club.

All-Ireland Scór final – Sadly, our Scór teams were not successful in the All-Ireland finals in Dublin, but everyone in St. Enda’s can be rightly proud of our stars as they competed with distinction. Our club can still proudly claim to be the leading Scór club in Ireland. Well done everyone, you are all winners in our eyes.

Gaelic Start conclusion – The latest batch of children to ‘graduate’ from the Omagh St. Enda’s Gaelic Start programme all received their medals today as the 2014/2015 sessions came to a conclusion. Many of the older children will now progress to our outdoor U8 Gaelic football, hurling and camogie coaching sessions. Well done to all the coaches and parents who helped throughout the programme when upwards of 100 children attended each week. A special word of mention must go to Liam McSorley who has been the driving force behind Gaelic Start for the past number of years. This year was Liam’s final programme and St. Enda’s is deeply indebted to him for his commitment in nurturing a new generation of young St. Enda’s starlets.See Gaelic Start photo in our Photo Gallery.
