The Seniors’ had their final game of the year against Derrylaughan on Sunday but were unfortunately beaten 0-14 to 0-12. Well done to the U8 team who took part in an exhibition game at half time. This concludes the senior football season. Thanks to everyone who was involved in playing, managing and helping out on game days.
Congratulations to the U16 boys who won the Kildress tournament on Saturday past, beating Kildress in the final by 5 points. This was the final game of the year. A big thanks to the players and management for their commitment throughout the year.
Galbally’s Got Talent
Preparations are well underway for our Galbally’s Got Talent show on 29th November, with rehearsals beginning soon. Again, we welcome anyone who would like to help out with the event and to contact a committee member if this is the case.
CLIMB is a programme for children aged 5-12 years old who are experiencing the impact of a parent, other significant adult, brother or sister’s cancer diagnosis. This is a scheme which is being very much promoted by Clare Clarke, a Gael who has worked for the LGFA in Croke Park for 11 years who has been unfortunately diagnosed with cancer, and subsequently found very little of this type of support across Ireland. As an issue which surely affects many of our loved ones, a programme such as CLIMB would provide much needed support to sufferers and their families.
We can do our part!! There will be a short walk (approx 1 mile) leaving from Galbally Community Centre at 2.30pm on Sun 26th October. It is totally child friendly so gather up your family and friends, put on your club colours and support the worthwhile cause. Donations can be made on the day.
The club are hoping to organise heart screening for our players from underage to senior. We don’t have to look far to see how important these short examinations are, and how vital they can be to saving lives, and so we urge all our players and parents of players to think about screening. Anyone interested is to contact any member of the committee, with more details to be released pending numbers.
This Week’s Numbers: 7, 3, 12, 8. Lucky Dip Winners: Brian Mullan, Jody Donnelly, Rosie Lynch, Eugene Carberry (£25 each). Jackpot now stands at £4150.
