Our Club has been chosen for the ‘Gaelic For Girls’ Initiative programme. This programme will take place in March for 8-12yrs, where all hands are required in helping to grow and sustain our ladies football. There will be a training evening for all coaches/parents and anyone else interested in this fantastic programme on TUESDAY 24th FEB 7.30-9.30pm in Galbally Community Centre.

Youth

Our Pearse Og’s this Friday night 20th will NOT be taking place, though it will continue to run for another two weeks Fri 27th Feb and Fri 6th of March. Our Pearse Og programme would not be as successful as it is without the help from all the coaches, parents/guardians and club members helping out, we cannot thank you enough for all your help to date.

This Sunday 22nd our Minor boys will start their league campaign against Omagh at 3:30pm in Healy Park, we wish them the best of luck. Could all minors make sure they are members of the club before their game on Sunday or they won’t be able to play. The minor boys also defended the title of the Ryan Tierney Cup in Clogher last Sunday, the competition began with wins over both Moy and the hosts Gael Naomh Padraig to top our group and get to the final. The opponents in the final were Carrickmore. A great second half saw Galbally hold their opponents scoreless to retain the title on a 1-7 to 2-2. Congratulations to you all.
