Youth Affairs

Under 12’s – Zone H

Currin Under 12 played a great game against neighbours Eire Og on Saturday last at Scotshouse on a scoreline of 0 14 to 0 05. Well done to all. Our next game is against Rockcorry at Scotshouse on Saturday 15th April at 2pm All players please be at the pitch for 1:15 and collected about 3pm. Next Saturday we will be training from 10am to 11am at Scotshouse.

Under 16’s – Division 3

Our first game of the season took us to Rockcorry on Thursday evening 30th March and it was a great performance that saw us come away with the two points on a scoreline of 1 07 to 5 06. Our next game will be on Thursday 6th April (this evening) in Aghbog against St Tiarnach Sarsfields (Clones/Killeevan). Throw in a 6:45pm

Boys Development Panels

The trials for the under 14 development panel continue over Easter. Text message with more details will be sent to eligible players and parents nearer the time. And finally apologies to Conor Smith whom we missed when listing the players currently performing at County Development Squads a couple of weeks ago. Conor continues to impress at the Under 16 Development Squad.

The Under 8 and nursery training will be starting in the coming weeks. Please watch here for notification of start date and spread the word. All new members are very welcome.


We welcome Rockcorry to Scotshouse on Saturday evening next 8th April at 6.30 pm in the first game of the league. Then on Wednesday 12th we play Aghabog in Aghabog at 7.00pm. Please note the different throw in times.

Monaghan county matters.

Monaghan men finished their NFL Div 1 campaign going down to Dublin in a cracking game in Clones. Another stellar performance from Jack merited the ‘Man of the Match’ award. And not forgetting the Monaghan Ladies, with Ellen scoring nine points to set up a win over Armagh and earn another tilt at the Orchard county next week.

Committee matters

Monthly meeting with ‘Fundraising’ high on the agenda takes place on Thursday evening 6th April at 9.00p.m. in the clubrooms.

Recent bereavement,

Currin G.F.C. would like to sympathise with Tommy Connolly, on the recent death of his brother Pat Connolly, R.I.P. Pat, formerly from Tullalust, Scotshouse, had emigrated to and resided in Birmingham, England, many years ago. Pat had recently celebrated his eighty ninth birthday. We extend our condolences to his wife and especially to Tommy, who is a great G.A.A. supporter. Go ndeana Dia trochaire ar a ainm dilis.

Cake Sale

Currin juveniles will hold their Annual Cake Sale on Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday after mass. This is an ideal way to spoil yourself after the rigours of

Lent and at the same time support a very worthy cause by either baking and or buying.


Well done to Currin’s youthful Terry Mc Entee and veteran Brian Mc Cabe who were honoured for their fantastic sporting achievements by Monaghan County Council this week. Terry was recognised for his achievement in winning the Irish Youth Championship and European Youth bronze medal in 2016. Brian was recognised for his quite remarkable 59 consecutive years as Currin’s treasurer. Congratulations Brian and Terry.

Best wishes

Congratulations and best wishes to Hughie Fay and Helen Maynes who got married recently. Tyrone and Monaghan coming together can only mean good for Currin football in the future. We wish them well.
