Club Call - every Thursday
DONAGHMORE: Any club member who is interested in undertaking training for refereeing, please contact any member of the committee. Courses are currently taking place for girls/boys aged 14-17, but alternative arrangements can be made for any interested member outside this age bracket.
The local youth club has recently restarted, with a few volunteers helping to supervise the children on Tuesday and Friday evenings. The success of the relaunch means the youth club is currently short-staffed, especially on Friday evenings. We are therefore asking for anyone interested in helping out to contact Grace Girvan in BEAM for further information or, alternatively, speak with Éamonn Hamill or any member of the committee.
The club extends its sympathies to the Kavanagh family on the recent passing of Packie. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
