St. Patrick’s Dromahair GAA Club Notes 12/03/2018

National Club Draw – Last week we received the wonderful news from Croke Park that we have been awarded the €1000 prize for achieving the highest sales in the province. Thank you to all who bought and sold tickets over the months and to all at McGoldrick’s Centra for allowing us to set up a stand. This is a huge achievement for the club and it is all down to the community who gave generously as always. While it was very much a group effort special mention must go to Jim Meehan and Kevin Torsney who co-ordinated the draw for the club so well.
Swan Bar Division 4 – Our game against Leitrim Gaels was cancelled at the weekend. The team is scheduled to play Bornacoola next Sunday at 12pm in Dromod.
Newtowngore Engineering Under 17 League – Our U17 team were narrowly defeated away to Annaduff on Saturday in a high scoring game. Both U13 teams suffered defeat to St Mary’s on Sunday in St Osnat’s pitch. The U17 team are due to play Melvin Gaels away next Saturday morning.
Good luck – We wish Brendan and the lads the very best against Waterford on Saturday.
Registration – All players and parents are reminded that all players must be registered for insurance purposes. This is very important. Please get forms from coaches/club officers.
Bag Packing – Bag packing will take place on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th March in Tesco Sligo. If anyone can spare an hour or two to help out please get in contact with a club officer with a day/time that suits.
La Fhéile Pádraig – Is lá an-tábhachtach é an 17ú Márta do mhuintir na hÉireann agus d’Éireannaigh’ timpeall an domhain mhóir. Bímid ag céiliúradh Naomh Pádraig a thug an Chríostaíocht dúinn sa 5ú haois. D’úsáid sé an tseamróg chun an Trionóid a mhíniú d’ár sinsear agus ó shin i leith aithnítear é mar shiombal Éireannach.
Is féidir linn bheith bródúil as ár gcultúr ní hamháin ar lá’ le Pádraig ach tríd an bhliain go léir!
