D day for our adult squad arrives next Sunday in Ballybay when they must over come Cremartin in the Dr. Ward Cup final if they are to secure promotion back to intermediate ranks. Cremartin by virtue of reaching the junior championship final and their reserve squad last Sunday lifting the Hugh Brady Cup RFL Div 2 trophy will enter this game as favourites. Our boys will not worry to much about being underdogs Garry Larkin and his management team know the squad have prepared well and he and our big band of supporter will be hoping they can produce a performance that will do their effort justice now that they are with in sight of a target they set themselves at the beginning of the year. We certainly wish Gary and the boys well and hope to see club support out in force at 3 o clock on Sunday.

We extend our deepest sympathy to the Mc Cabe family circle on the death of Paddy Mc Cable Manchester England. Paddy a player in the early days of the club back in the ’60 although forced to emigrate and seek employment in England, Paddy maintained a keen interest in the fortunes of Sean Mc Dermotts, never failing to call or take in a club game on his regular visit home. To his immediate family and especially brother Frank Tattinaclave we extend our heartfelt sympathy. Go ndeana Dia Trocaire ar a anam.
