29th of August
Well it certainly has been a busy couple of weeks for the senior team both on and off the field. As mentioned in last week’s notes, following our dramatic penalty shootout win over Aghabog in the championship, an issue was raised after the game was completed in regards to the spot kicks. Since then the matter has been brought before the CCC of Monaghan County board. As we were going to print,, it was confirmed that following a meeting of the CCC they were proposing a replay between Aghabog and ourselves. The club committee along with the team and managment are currently considering this proposal. On the field a valuable league point was picked up in an exciting draw against Eire Og on Sunday afternoon, well done to the team and management who have not allowed what is happening in the back ground effect their on field performance. Next up in the league is a trip away to Toome this Saturday evening at 6pm.

Lord Mayor Campaigns
It has been a busy few weeks on the Lord Mayor Campaign front. Well done to candidate Stephen Duffy who hosted a great week of Fun Bowls in St Mary’s Hall with competitors travelling from near and far and indeed quite a number took up the game for the very first time. One would imagine the local bowls club is going to gain a number of new members. A number of other events to look forward to is a Texas Hold’em Poker classic and a Honda Bike run. Details of those will be released shortly. A reminder also that Ambrose the Calf is thriving and tickets for the draw to win him are still available from Selena Lynch.
