Liathroid Laimhe:

Adult County Doubles Championships. All club members involved in county final and semi-final action must keep in shape for another while as several games are outstanding due to injuries within and outside the club so keep in action and be ready when called upon.

Adult Club Championships. Both club Doubles finals are outstanding due to injury, but we ask all involved to make an extra effort to play the game when all are fit to play as it is getting late in the season and we hope to get all played but the season closes.

Juveniles. Even though all leagues and coaching are over for the this season all juveniles keep a ball in your kit bag and try to keep playing a little bit over the closed season because you will definitely see the benefits when next year starts.

Feile Na Gael. We have entered a 6-man team into Feile na Gael and will begin training with these boys shortly to keep them in shape as the competition approaches.

Community Games. Good luck to our U15 team who now start playing in the Ulster round of games shortly.

Prize Draw. We will be approaching club members if they would be interested in buying a ticket for the handball council, there are some brilliant prizes for the individuals and also for the club, all will be explained before purchasing.
