Manor Rangers – Well done to the Manorhamilton Rangers U16 team who won the U16 Group A boys Final in the Sligo Leitrim League last Friday evening.

Táin U13 League – The U13 hurlers had a great evening of hurling against Erne Gaels, Belleek in an away fixture on Monday evening.  The final score was 5-1 to 2.0 in favour of the home side.

Golden Jubilee Jerseys – Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club celebrates its Golden Jubilee this year, 2019. The August bank holiday weekend will feature the various aspects of the club, the official opening of our pitch at Boggaun and the launch of the club’s history.  To mark our Jubilee we are in the process of having a completely new design on our Senior team jersey, which will carry the logo of our main sponsor, MacManus Pharmacies on the jersey front.  There has been great interest expressed locally among the community to have another sponsor on the back of these unique jerseys.  Interested parties would include local groups & organisations/employers/the self-employed/businesses or individuals and club members wishing to promote a charity close to their hearts. The club has decided that the fairest way to decide this, is to have a raffle among those interested, by selling tickets for same for €50 each (three for €100). The winner will be drawn at a special function, at which everyone will be very welcome to attend. The lucky winner will be featured on the back of the Senior team jerseys for Championship in 2019 and receive a jersey with their chosen number on it while all the other entrants will be acknowledged on an advertising hoarding at Boggaun and on our social media platforms.  For logistical reasons, the logo will appear on the senior jerseys only and not on any replicas and will apply for the 2019 season, our very special Jubilee Year.  If you are interested in buying a ticket or require further information please do not hesitate to contact either Ciaran Sheridan, Collette Fox, Phil Flynn, Padhraic Corrigan or Gerry Hickey Junior.

100K in May for Manor GAA – All the ladies are doing mighty as they approach the halfway point.  Don’t forget you can pledge a few euro towards their efforts by taking a line or two on the sponsorship cards in the shops around town or by donating to any of their facebook pages.  Ag siúl le chéile.

U9 Blitz – Our young footballers had a great morning of fun and games in the Bee Park on Saturday last as they hosted our near neighbours Drumkeerin and Glenfarne Kiltyclogher.

Adult Fixtures and Results – Our 3rd team found the going tough against St Mary’s in Carrick on Shannon on Saturday evening last with the home side running out convincing winners.  Our Seniors make the trip to Drumshanbo this Saturday evening to take on Allen Gaels.  Throw in 7pm.  On Sunday our Intermediates play Bornacoola away at 12 noon.  Good luck to both teams and managements.
