Castleblayney Notes

February 21st, 2012

Ulster League – The seniors good run in the Ulster League continued on Saturday last when they overcame Glenullin 0-7 to 0-6. On a cold blustery day it was the excellent place kicking of Keith Hill that was the difference between the teams as he accounted for 4 of our 7 seven scores from placed balls, 2 of them from 45s. This weekend we have a home fixture against Killybegs (Donegal) on Saturday @ 3.00PM in Oram.

Cairde Fág An Bealach – The Faughs fundraising drive, Cairde Fág on Bealach, is now well underway and the response thus far has been very positive. The aim of the scheme is to facilitate Faughs supporters and the local community in making a financial contribution to the St Marys Park development. There are two levels of contribution. People can commit €240 per year either as one yearly payment or a monthly payment of €20 per month. This will give the subscribers a special jacket and membership of the newly revamped lotto with major weekly prizes. Alternatively people can commit to paying €120 per year either by one yearly payment or a monthly payment of €10 per month, this will exclude membership of the new lotto. Our sellers will be contacting members in the near future; alternatively anyone interested in becoming a member can contact Club Treasurer Bob O Donnell on 087-6025027, Declan at Loughman Sports or any committee member.
