12th December 2011


The new club calendar is now available.  At just €5 it’s an ideal stocking filler and features full pictures from each club team from 2011 as well as both jubilee teams (1961 Juniors & 1986/87 Seniors) and the picture of the five trophy winning captains from the year just gone.  They are available in various shops around the town.


The Club Christmas Newsletter is now available on It features a review on all the trophy winning teams this year as well as the Stars who featured on this year’s Ulster winning Cavan Minor & U-21 teams.  The paper version of the newsletter will be available for free in various shops around the town this weekend or early next week.


After their successful opening match in the Northern Bank Ulster Minor Club Championship,  O’Raghallaigh Gaels are back in action at 1.30pm on St. Stephen’s Day up in Belfast.  This time there will be a huge step up in quality as they face Watty Grahams (Derry) in the Semi-Finals, who defeated Monaghan champions, Truagh Gaels, by 25 points in their opening match and beat St. Eunan’s (Donegal) in the Quarter Final at the weekend.

The lads have done fantastic to reach this stage and deserve plenty of support as they try and reach the Ulster final. A bus has been organised to make the trip up to St. Paul’s GAC and leaves town at 10:45am. Seats are €10 for Adults & €5 for U-16’s.

To book your seat, text Angela on 087 7648109 or put your name down with Pat Faulkner.  Go on why not head up, there is only so much turkey, selection boxes and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang you can endure, it will make a change from the normal Stephen’s Day……



After a bit of a break, the club held a Dinner Dance earlier this year to mark the success of the Senior Championship winning team of 2010.  Such was the success of the night, and the various teams this year, we are back for more.  The Club Dinner Dance will now take place in Cabra Castle Hotel on Friday 20th January. 


A jam-packed night will see presentations to the Senior, Junior & Minor winning teams for 2011 as well as honouring the recent jubilee teams (1961 Juniors & 1986/87 Seniors) and I am sure plenty of other things on the night. Based on last year alone, a great night is guaranteed. Tickets will be available from all committee members shortly and are €35.




While the Dinner Dance will follow next month, to get the ball rolling the club held a Social Night last Friday night in Murtaghs. On the night there was a presentation of the Minor League medals and the Girls U-14 league medals.  A great achievement by both teams and it was a most enjoyable evening and some pictures from the evening will be up on during the week.


The winning numbers in the Lotto this week were 04, 05, 06 & 14  (Bonus 24). There was no jackpot winner and just  the one Match 3, with Agnes Clarke winning €200. Next week’s jackpot will be €11,200 and the draw will take place in Blakes on Sunday 18th  December, and will be the last one of 2011.
