Clontibret Notes 23.03.2023
Reserve B Football
Clontibret 1-11 Killanny 0-9 The B’s got their season off to a flying start with a good win in Killanny on St Patrick’s Day. A solid performance with some fine individual displays especially in the second half from a team which was a mix of youth and experience ensured a comfortable enough win in the end. Next up for this team is a visit from Aughnamullen on Sunday April 2nd, followed by Corduff the following Sunday.
Reserve C Football
The C team has the first official outing on Saturday when Blackhill come to O’Neill Park for a 5pm throw in. After that its away to Donaghmoyne on Saturday 8th April.
The senior football league gets under way this year on Saturday 15th April with an away game in Magheracloone with a time to be fixed.
Ulster GAA Charity Sky Dive
The long awaited Ulster GAA skydive was also a victim of the snowstorm over the weekend and has been rescheduled for Friday April 14th. This gives you more time to donate on behalf of Dessie to both the Air Ambulance NI & Prostate Can-cer Research at QUB at https://ulster.gaa.ie/skydive
A big thank you to everyone who have set up new standing orders or paid their 240 online directly into the bank. This is greatly appreciated, as our ability to show our income stream, and club member numbers will hopefully help us get the much-needed Sports Capital grant funding required to carry out floodlighting to our new pitch.
We are appealing to everyone who uses our facilities and supports the club, to set-up their €20 monthly standing order, or pay €240 directly into our bank, or to any promoter. All payments made, or standing orders set up before end of March will be entered into a big cash prize Easter Draw.
The club wishes to acknowledge and record appreciation for recent contributions from Clontibret Development Association and Clontibret Golf Society both of which reflect the confidence of the wider local community in ongoing develop-ments at O’Neill Park.
Good luck to Vinnie, Marty, Conor, Conor, Killian & Francis as they take on Mayo in the final league game on Sunday in Castlebar.
Best wishes also to Aaron Carey as the u20s opened their championship campaign against Armagh in Blayney last night.
