Owenmore Gaels GAA Club notes

Owenmore Gaels are delighted to announce that we will be holding our official opening of our new stand this coming Saturday 4th August at 2pm. All are welcome to mark this great occasion. The club would like to take this opportunity to thank all who sponsored and contributed towards the stand throughout the past year. We would also like to thank Benson Construction Ballygawley for their top class work, VHA Architects and Whitesides Centra for all their time and support. And without doubt the stand would not be here without Marty Joe Kerins, who drove the project on and was influential in gaining necessary funds.


In conjunction with our opening of the stand, we will be holding our annual Area Tournament where 5 areas around the club boundaries will fight it out to claim this years bragging rights. The areas participating include Knockbeg, the Town, Gleann Road, Carrickbanagher, Ballinacarrow & Ballisodare. The tournament throws in around 3pm and will be 9 a-side. Anyone over 16 is welcome to participate. For more info, contact our facebook page.
