Christmas Remembrance Tree
Owing to the year it has been and with restrictions in place, we have decided to put up a Christmas Tree near the walking track. 2020 has been a difficult year for a lot of us, not being able to visit Family and Friends as often as we would have liked – due to the restrictions. We only hope this Covid 19 pandemic will pass soon. But we know how tough Christmas can be by the absence of family and friends, who either have sadly passed away or who we can’t visit at present. We would like to invite you all to place your ‘Remembrance Star’ on the tree. In memory of loved ones past or present. Stars will be available to collect from Tallys Shop very soon.
Our numbers drawn were:
1, 11, 15, 17, 23
We had NO JACKPOT winners tonight.
Our five lucky dip winners tonight were:
Celine Robinson, Shane McCaughey, Barney John Kelly, Josie Quinn, Rosemary & Roisin Kelly
Next week’s JACKPOT is £2100

Congratulations to Sean Hurson who was the referee for the Connacht Football Final between Galway and Mayo.
Piarsaigh an Ghallbhaile would like to take this opportunity to send our very best wishes to Mickey Harte as he steps away from his role as Manager of the Tír Eoghain Senior team. We all enjoyed the remarkable journey and will always remember the joy, pride and glory of that wonderful September day in 2003 when it was finally “time to take Sam back to Tyrone.” How proud we were of every one of you especially our own Paddy Tally. Even more success came on the All-Ireland stage in 2005 with our own Mickey Murphy proudly becoming the first player from the club to win a Celtic Cross. Another victory quickly followed in 2008 and we will also never forget being part of those two wonderful nights when the floodlights lit up the Dublin sky and the Red Hands lit up the Páirc an Chrocaigh scoreboards. Having our own Mickey Murphy again representing the club made it even that bit more special then and today we are very proud that Liam Rafferty, Daniel Kerr and Conor Quinn are very much part of the Tír Eoghain set-up. Unfortunately we have not yet returned to those dizzy heights. As Mickey leaves though he can be justifiably proud of all he has achieved with the various Tír Eoghain teams he has managed over so many years. The club wish him well on whatever path life takes him and trust that he will be blessed with every success and good health in the years to come. Go Raibh Maith Agat agus Ádh Mór a Chara .
