Our senior ladies had a fantastic second half comeback against Castlederg in St Patricks Park, Omagh on Saturday evening securing the Junior League Title for the first time in 13 years on a scoreline of Galbally 3-06 Castlederg 1-09. Congratulations & well done to all the girls and the management team of Tony McVeigh & Ronan McGeary.
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.

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! We have new stock coming in for Christmas (see pictures attached). If you are interested in purchasing these goods please call into the club shop during opening hours with a deposit and we can reserve these for you.
