The Seniors continue their run on the challenge circuit this week.  After a run out against Donaghmoyne over the weekend, they will now host Cullaville on Friday night in their final run challenge match. Both the Seniors & Juniors open their league seasons in a double header away to Cuchullains on Sunday 27th March.

On Wednesday night in Murtaghs, at least 10  members of the Senior & Junior panels are taking part in the “Shave or Dye” campaign.  This is a fundraising event for the Irish Cancer Society and will see the lads looking somewhat different than usual by the end of the night…. Please support the lads and donate what you can, either on the night itself, or when they walk with the club and seek to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society, as part of the club, in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Best of Luck to the Cavan U-21’s who play Fermanagh in the Ulster Championship on Wednesday night in Brewster Park, Enniskillen at 8pm. Senior Players, Shane Gray, Barry Reilly, Colm Smith & Barry Tully all feature on the panel so if you can make it to Enniskillen on Wednesday to support the side, please do so.
The Minors had another week off with their match v St. Joseph’s postponed due to the pitch being unplayable.  Next up is a trip across the road to Bailieboro which takes place on Saturday, although the time has yet to be confirmed.

The 16s have been training away for the past couple of weeks on Monday evenings @ 7.30pm. This year, because of lack of numbers, the club have amalgamated with Shercock and so O’Raghallaigh Gaels will make a return to the scene this year.  They will play in Division One and their first match will be away to Cavan Gaels on Tuesday 5th April @ 7.30pm.  For full list of fixtures, please click here.

2011 club membership is due and must be paid before 31st March. In an effort to increase membership, and also to get rid of the remaining few 2011 calendars, the club are giving away a FREE club calendar to anyone who either registers their club membership online or else plays an auto-renewal ticket for the club lotto online.

Membership remains the same at €50 for players (€30 for Students/Unemployed) and €20 for Juvenile or Non-Players. Remember this membership fee not only protects all members, but along with the lotto, it also ensures the club can continue to field the ever increasing volume of teams that it does, so please sign up ASAP. If online membership or lotto ain’t your thing, you can of course just pay your various team managers or captains or pop into Pat Faulkner, M&F or any committee member.

The winners of Week Four were Ciaran Gorman, Kevin Martin & Georgina Goergan who all scored 20pts (out of a possible 25) and win €50 each.  Week Five continues this weekend (19/20 Mar). The cost is just €3 per week with 1st prize winning/sharing  €100. All you have to do is attempt to predict who will win the 16 NFL matches with a home win (1pt), away win (2pts) or draw (3pts)
If you want to enter, you can collect an entry form from Kevin Sheils or Niall Smith , or e-mail for an entry form. Results will appear on weekly club notes & online newsletter.

The winning numbers in this week’s lotto were 05, 08, 20 & 27 (Bonus 24). There was no jackpot or Match 3s. Next week’s draw takes place on Sunday 19th March and the jackpot will be €3,400 (€8,400 including the bonus). To play the lotto, just click here.
