Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club Notes 13/12/2018

U16 Girls Championship Final – The U16 Leitrim Ladies 15aside championship final is due to take place this Friday night under lights at 7pm with venue TBC.  This is the last game for our club in the 2018 season and we take this opportunity to wish the girls and their management team of Tommy, Martin, Dolores and Christina the very best of luck.  Please show your support to them on the night.

Old Club Jerseys – We are looking for people to search out their wardrobes, garages and attics in search of old club jerseys which were used by our adult and juvenile football and hurling teams in the club (male and female) in the following decades – the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s.  They are needed for our 50th club celebrations.  Please contact Collette Fox asap on 0866020192 if you can assist.

Heinz Beans Tokens – We are asking our club members and all underage parents to collect Heinz Beans tokens. If we have enough tokens our underage boys and girls teams could benefit with sports kits. The closing date is the 15th February, 2019.

 Christmas Events – Manorhamilton has plenty on offer for families in the lead up to Christmas.  The Winter Wonderland takes place at Manorhamilton Castle and the Panto “Cinderella Keep Your Eye on the Ball (Even When it’s in the Referee’s Pocket) takes place in the Glens Centre.  Both promise to be great events.  Please do your best to support. 

New Arrival – Belated congrats to Ann and Conor Farrell on the safe arrival of their baby daughter Kate recently.

Club Academy/U9s/U11s – Our Club Football Academy, U9 and U11 training will take place this Friday night at St Clare’s Comprehensive School. Times will be notified to parents.

 Match for Mark – The annual Match for Mark game between St Mary’s of Sligo and Glencar/Manorhamilton returns again this year on St Stephen’s Day.  Keep the date free, dust down the boots and see you in Kent Park for what has always been a great social occasion and opportunity to support a local charity in memory of St Mary’s and Glencar Manor’s former player Mark Rooney.  Details are being finalised and full fixture details will be issued shortly.

Ladies Club History – In preparation for our club’s 50th anniversary in 2019, the ladies club are looking to dig out all old photos, match programmes, newspaper clippings or any other club memorabilia to help prepare a detailed history of the history of the ladies club. We are also trying to compile the names of all club officers/managers/club award winners since the club was formed – so if you were an officer/manager/award winner – please forward any information you can.  Please email any correspondence you have to

Pitch Bookings – All pitch bookings for the Bee Park and Boggaun are to be made through Patrick McMorrow.  Patrick can be contacted on 0868973339.
