Owenmore Gaels GAA Club notes

Ladies Final

Full time in Connolly Park Ladies Division 3 League Final Owenmore Gaels 2-06 Curry 2-10. Heartbreak for the girls, in a great game of football the girls just fell short after a strong second half from Curry. Well done to the girls who put in a massive effort all year. And thanks to all who came out and supported them. Keep an eye on our facebook page for match report.

Sligo Masters

Hard luck to the Sligo Master who lost out to Mayo in the All-Ireland Final last Saturday on a scoreline of 1-10 to 0-9. Especially to our own club members Gerry Dooner and Gary Mullen who done the club proud.  Well done on getting to the final, there is always next year!

Best of luck to club members Gary Mullen and Gerry Dooner who are representing Sligo in the All-Ireland final of the Gaelic Masters Series. They face Mayo in Corran Park in Ballymote at 2.45pm. Best of luck lads.

Scór na nÓg

As the competitions wind down on the field in the county, attention is now turning to GAA matters off the pitch. This is a special Winter season for Sligo GAA and it's Scór Committee as we host the All Ireland Finals at both Scór Sinsir and Scór na nÓg levels.

Clubs are asked to make an extra special effort to get involved as we aim to have some home grown talent take to the stage of IT Sligo come Spring 2018. For the first time ever Scór na bPaistaí is being run for Primary School children in October in a bid to foster a relationship with the association and Scór.

Anyone interested in music, song, dance or drama should contact Keith Henry 086-3357182 or Catherine Gallagher 087-6494568, any Scór Committee member or their club for more information.
