St John’s Magazine

Memorabilia and articles about the life and times of St John’s over the last 30 years will be welcomed by the organising committee or if you would like to write an article about the GAA in general please contact us at 086 0793791. We have received quite an amount of photographs so far for which we are grateful, but I’m sure there is lots more out there which club followers would love to see in the magazine.


Congratulations and well done to St John’s star Charlie Harrison and the Sligo senior team on their hard-fought, but well-deserved victory over Laois in the Allianz League. This victory, coming after last week’s reverse to Antrim, leaves the team in joint second place with a good chance of promotion after a much-improved second half display.Hopefully this good form will continue next Sunday when they take on Longford in Pearse Park, Longford. It was great to see Charlie back in the starting line-up and hopefully he will get an injury-free run for the rest of the year.

St Patrick’s Day Parade

St Johns will have a float in the St Patrick’s Day parade and we urge supporters to turn out in force to encourage our members taking part.
