Sean Mac Diarmada Notes 28-04-11


Thursday 5-5-11 U-16 Latton (H) V Seans @7pm

Saturday 7-5-11 Seans (H) V Scotstown @12 noon

Sunday 8-5-11 IFL Corduff (H) V Seans @2:30pm

Team Affairs:

Our intermediate team played Tyholland last Friday night in the Intermediate League at home. Both teams were nip and tuck for the first ten minutes and then Tyholland proceeded to take full advantage of possession. However our men put their shoulder to the wheel and ran out convincing winners. See match report elsewhere in this issue. On Sunday with confidence brewing we visited Drunhowan, in search of a very successful weekend on the field of play. With a gale force brreze blowing across the field it spoiled what otherwise were perfect conditions. We went in at half time at a one point gain. However Drunhowan showed their experience of playing senior grade football last year and carried the ball convincingly against the breeze. They eventually ran out winners on a scoreline of Drumhowan 0-8, Seans 0-6. This Sunday we visit early pace setters in the Corduff @ 2:30pm in Corduff. Never an easy place to go visiting looking for points.

Cultural Night:

Our monthly Irish Music session is taking place on Friday 13th May. Junior musicians will kick off proceedings at 9pm sharp, with the tempo and momentum increasing, as fingers get warmed up!

This is an invaluable opportunity to dust off those instruments & get back up to speed, in what is a fun & sociable night for all. Please come along and support these local musicians.


Our minors got the ball rolling last Tuesday night week, with a comprehensive win in Doohamlet.  A speedy recovery is wished to Matthew Mc Cabe who sustained who sustained a serious injury two weeks ago. Hope to see you back in the yellow and white jersey soon.


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.

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.

Table Quiz:

Local club members table quiz in aid or Autism Ireland and St Mary’s National School Threemilehouse

Two of the local clubmen (Ciaran Murphy and Barry Mc Guinness) are undertaking a mammoth cycle of 346 miles over four European Countries in aid or Autism Ireland and St Marys National School Threemilehouse , which caters for children with Autism in the surrounding parishes.

They are running a table quiz next Friday the 6th of May in order to raise funds for this great cause. The table quiz will commence at 9.0 clock and would appreciate as much support from the local community as possible. There will be spot prizes on the night along with refreshments.

Healthy Hearts/ Healthy Lives:

Our club will be offering a screening service carried out by an experienced professional medical team. Healthy hearts, healthy lives offer a cardiac screening service to check for the presence of cardiac abnormality in young people that could lead to sudden cardiac death.
