Gortletteragh GAA Club Notes 10/10/2018

Church Gate Collection – We will be holding our annual Church Gate collection this weekend at all there churches. All support and donations received are hugely appreciated

Wedding Bells – We wish to congratulate former player Simon Egan, Cornageeha, and Kerri Quinn, Gortfadda, Mohill or their recent wedding, held in the sunnier climes of Santorini, Greece. Simon is currently plying his footballing trade Down Under. We wish you both a lifetime of health and happiness from all at Gortletteragh GAA Club.

Cathal Clancy and Mamie Reilly Tournament – We held our annual U11 and U9 tournaments versus Cloone last Sunday. Our U7s had their first game also which was a great success. We had a great day of football from our U7s starting to learn their skills, to our U9s and U11s showing off their own skills. Thanks to Cloone for the great games for another year, and thanks to all who helped out on the day. We were all very glad to come indoors to the warmth and enjoy the refreshments provided on a day that turned out wetter than we’d hoped for.

U15 – We played Melvin Gaels at home last Saturday. In the first minute of the game we conceded a penalty and they converted. So we played catch up for most of the first half. But by the time halftime whistle blew we had taken the lead by nine points with three well-struck goals. We never surrendered the lead from there till the full-time whistle. Next up is Sean O’Heslin in Ballinamore this Saturday morning. The team on the day was: J Shields, R Cunningham, D Heslin, A Liu Doyle, C Niblock, B Naughton, O Heslin, B Davis, M Reynolds, C McNulty, N Ward, C Reynolds, R Ward. Subs used C O’Leary, J Reynolds, L McManus

County Final – Best of luck to neighbours Mohill as they contest the Connacht Gold SFC Final this weekend.
