All roads lead to St Pats Park in Omagh (behind Old Firestation on Gortin Road) for our Senior Ladies Junior League Final on Saturday 22nd October at 4pm against Castlederg.  All support will be greatly appreciated.

Fundraising Draw
We only have 4 weeks left of our Fundraising draw.  This fundraising draw is important to raise vital funds to bring our club debt free into 2017.  We would appreciate if everyone could do their bit and help to achieve our target- after all it’s Our Club – Your Club – One Club!  To everyone who has been out selling tickets this hasn’t gone unnoticed – every ticket sold is an investment into our fantastic club.  We appreciate that everyone has busy lives and so does every person who is already out selling tickets.  Every ticket counts.  Many hands make light work.  If you are able to contribute to our clubs future please send a pm or contact any committee member who will put you in contact with a team leader.  Reminder for all team leaders – returns are to be made every Tuesday night in the committee room at 9pm sharp.

Scór na nÓg 2016
The first round of this year’s Scór na nÓg competition will be held on 4th, 5th and 6th of November, for club members under 17.  The competitions include: Ceilí Dancing, Recitation, Solo singing, Instrumental music group, Ballad Group, Set Dancing, Leiriú (a short production on Irish history).  If you would like to get involved in any of the competitions, please contact Mairead Hurson, send a pm or contact any committee member.

Senior & Reserve Men
Our Senior Men (only) are back in action on Thursday 20th October at 8pm in Pairc na nGael in their second last league game of 2016.  There will be no reserve game.

Club Lotto
No Jackpot Winner.  This week’s numbers (Tuesday 18th October) were: – 15, 5, 4 & 12.  Our 5 lucky dip winners winning £20 each: – Aidan Quinn (Cross), Ryah Brannigan, Ursula Brankin, Sean Rafferty & Kate Kelly.  Next week’s jackpot returns to £1,500.  Next Draw takes place on Tuesday 25th October @ 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.
