Registration Night:

After a very successful year last year we are getting ready to start the new GAA season and we look forward to building on our achievements and success to date. We will be hosting our annual registration and awards night on Friday night, 3rd February, in the Corduff/Raferagh Community Centre, commencing at 7:15pm with registration. This event will give you the opportunity to meet members of the Juvenile Committee and the coaches who will be coaching your children throughout the year.

A Presentation of medals to our successful U14 team from last year will take place after registration.

Refreshments will be served on the night so come along and enjoy the evening.

This year we will once again be combining the registration and yearly training fee which will be the total cost incurred for the year. The costs are as follows: Single child: €30; Two Children: €50; Three or more: €70

The Juvenile and Ladies committees have agreed that for 2017 any girl who will be playing competitive Under-12 football for both boys & girls will only have to pay the registration fee, so for the juvenile club that will be €10.

The Senior committee have also introduced a family membership and any family who decide to take up this membership you will only have to pay the training fee. The costs are as follows: Single child: €20; Two Children: €30; Three or more: €40.

We look forward to seeing you all there on the night.

Club Gear:

Following a number of enquiries about club gear, information will be available at our registration night for parents who wish to purchase gear. It is not a requirement for players to wear the club colours; however it is the committee’s view that our players are extremely proud to wear them. O’Neills are the company the club have decided to work with this year, a selection of club gear can be purchased from the O’Neills Website searching for Corduff and selecting what you would like to purchase from the items listed.


GAA League:

Our GAA League team made the journey to Tydavnet last Wednesday night for Round 9 of the GAA League. The team of Peter Brennan, Micheál Hanratty, Ben Woods and George McKitterick came away with the win as they finished on a score-line of 5-3.
