Owenmore Gaels GAA Club notes

Well done to the Senior Ladies Team who got off to winning ways on Sunday with a 2pt win over Shamrock Gaels on a wet and windy morning in Connolly Park.

The club held a forum last week looking for ideas on improving the club over the next few years with the hope of creating a 5 year development plan. Some great ideas were raised by the participants regarding coaching, future facilities, fundraising etc. It is hoped to have the development plan finalised in the near future.
