Owenmore Gaels GAA Club notes

Happy New Year to all Gaels near and far!

A huge thank you to all who participated in and donated to our annual St.Stephens day charity match. An impressive €864.15 was raised for Motor Neuron research.
In a keenly contested match the 'yellows' won out on a 2-12 1-12 scoreline.
Massive thanks to Martin and Donna for organising post match refreshments and to Gerry O'Connell for refereeing.

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 its 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.
