Concussion Management – Updated Concussion Management Guidelines for Gaelic Games for your reference.

The Late David Clancy – There was shock and sadness in the Club and wider community at the news of the sad and tragic death of David Clancy, Agharrow, Tullaghan last week. David played for Melvin Gaels and will be sadly missed by all who knew him. The Club extends deepest sympathy to all David’s family, relatives and many friends. May he rest in peace.

Get Your Mark on Melvin Park – It is very important that all Club Members help with the fundraising needed to complete the work on Melvin Park. Anyone who has not yet contributed is asked to do so as soon as possible. Contact any member of the Development Committee to purchase your ”Mark” and ensure that the Club will have the facilities everyone can be proud of. The support has been very good so far. The fundraising will involve “Make Your Mark on Melvin Park” for €100 which will represent a square of Melvin Park, entry into a draw, prizes 5x €1000, and your name on a commemorative plaque. To get your “Mark on Melvin Park” contact Spar, Kinlough or Pat at 0871787194 or Katherine at 087 287 0086 or go to

Lights On – The lights will be on at the Training Pitch every evening from 4pm to 9pm as a Health Initiative so that the Community can make use of them on the dark evenings.
