Sean Mac Diarmada Notes 10-03-11

Dates for Your Diary:

Sat 12th March – RFL Div 3 Scotstown (h) V Sean Mac Diarmada @4pm

Fri 11th March – Jubilee Mass.

Team Affairs:

This Saturday we throw in the domestic season with our B team travelling to Scotstown. This is a good opportunity for the younger members of our squad to clock up some game time, ably assisted by some of our more experienced members. It is vital that we get off to a good start, as a good competing and performing B team puts pressure on our graded players. All players to be in Scotstown on Saturday @ 3:30 pm sharp.


Anybody interested in taking up refereeing should contact the Chairman, Gerry Lynch as referee courses will be beginning soon. With nearly 800 juvenile matches alone to be refereed throughout the county this year, it is very important we have enough referees.

Jubilee Year Celebrations:

The jubilee year celebrations will commence on Friday 11th March with mass in St Mary’s Church, and light refreshments will be served in the complex immediately after, for everybody. This will be the first part of a series of celebrations throughout the year. An open invitation is extended to everybody to attend on the night, to recall some good memories and renew old friendships


All of our juvenile teams are up and running at this stage, players and parents should note times of training sessions as attendance is vitally important due to the leagues starting in the near future, indoor gear and outdoor gear should be taken to all sessions for the foreseeable future.


Our novelty act succeeded in gaining entry to the Ulster Final by claiming the semi-final title in Silverbridge last Saturday night week. The final will take place in Abbey CBS Newry on Saturday 12th March, with proceedings commencing at the early time of 6:30 pm, all support greatly appreciated.

Mr & Mrs: 

The Seans ladies are organising a Mr and Mrs competition on Sunday 24th April in the complex. Plans are at an advanced stage and tickets will be on sale soon. This is a very worthy cause as the ladies do a lot of unseen work around the club. 

Dancing Classes:

Dancing classes continue at the usual time. Ceile dancing on Mondays from 6:30-7:30 pm.  Set dancing on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30 pm also.


The mini JACKPOT stands at €700 on 45 calls next Monday night. Meanwhile the BIG JACKPOT is now €12,900 on 45 calls. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
