Drumkeerin GAA Club Notes 11/09/2018

Intermediate Championship – the lads played Fenagh in Pairc Sean last weekend suffering a loss of 1-06 to 0-7 pts. An early goal was a real blow to the team but they battled hard from that point onwards. We wish Colm Clarke a speedy recovery, a man that’s never down long. The lads will play Eslin in the Quarter Finals of the Championship this Sunday, 16th September. The game is in Ballinamore at 12 midday, it’s the most important game of the year for the lads and a big turnout will be needed to beat this Eslin team who’ve found scoring easy this year. Best of luck to all involved, Drumkeerin abù.

Proposed club trip to Dundalk Races on the evening of Friday November 9th Everyone welcome to join us for a nite of fun and entertainment. It is also planned to spend the Saturday in Belfast shopping and sightseeing, and return to Drumkeerin Saturday night. We would encourage everyone to come along. Please contact Micheal Forde, Margaret Fee, John Mc Tiernan or Francis Davitt by next Friday.
