Training for our U6 / U8 / U10 / U12’s is over for the year.  We hope that everyone keeps practicing what they have learned over the last few months.  A massive thank you to all our coaches who have volunteered and taken time out of their busy schedules to train all the children.
Our Youth Presentation night is on Thursday 1st December at 7pm in Galbally Community Centre.  Refreshments will be provided and we have a guest presenter in attendance.

Club Lotto
No Jackpot Winner.  This week’s numbers (Tuesday 4th October) were: – 15, 13, 8 & 16.
Our 5 lucky dip winners winning £20 each: – Pauline Corr (Dungannon), John Armstrong, Sean Murphy, Gerry McVeigh (Dernaseer), John Kelly (Beechline).  3 out of our 5 lucky dip winners tonight bought their ticket in Galbally Post Office.  Next week’s jackpot returns to £1,400.  Next draw takes place on Tuesday 11th October at 9pm.  If you need a lotto seller to call to your home, contact any committee member or alternatively tickets can be purchased in Tally’s Mace or Donnelly’s Post Office.  Lotto is an essential source of income for the club & your continued support is greatly appreciated.

Club Shop
Since our committee are out selling tickets for our Club Fundraiser we will be changing the opening times of the club shop until the end of the draw.  The club shop will now be open on Sunday mornings from 11am – 12noon sharp.  We know it’s only the start of October but we have decided to open our Christmas club to allow people to reserve & pay off on items over the next few months.  This also ensures that you will get the size that you need.  Once the stock is gone we will be unable to get extra sizes in before Christmas.

Congratulations
Congratulations and well done to our current committee man and club referee Sean Hurson who had a tough job on his hands on Saturday as linesman at the Dublin All-Ireland football final replay.  Next up for Sean is when he takes centre stage refereeing the County Final in Omagh on Sunday with Killyclogher v Coalisland.  Following on from our Tyrone GAA Summer camp, James Donnelly & Emma McBride will be representing Piarsaigh an Ghallbhaile participating in the half-time games in the Tyrone County Finals on Sunday in Healy Park, Omagh.  A great day to represent our club – enjoy.
