The club's September monthly meeting takes place this Thursday night at 9pm in the clubrooms.

What a great weekend for the Ladies' section of the club, as our Under 14 girls and Senior   ladies lifted a trophy each amid scenes of great celebrations. The youngsters were first up on Saturday morning against Devenish and produced a very mobile and incisive effort against a gallant opponent to take the league title. Next day, our Senior ladies achieved the club's historic first championship in a very exciting and enjoyable final against Tempo, a super whole team and panel effort. Congratulations to our players and full credit to the two management groups. Firstly Frances, Martin and Brian, who have put in a huge effort for underage girls' football, and also to Niall Elliott who has stuck at it for years and most definitely deserves every credit for the team's success. It also has to be said that the support at both matches was brilliant. Thank you also to our Ladies' team sponsors Elliott's Swings and Things with the underage teams, and The Cosy Bar with our seniors.

Well done also to our senior men's team who defeated Devenish in the championship semi final last Friday night. We have the privilege of a county final to prepare for, and good luck to all involved. The Harps wishes a good recovery to Devenish forward Chris O'Brien, who sustained an injury towards the end of the game.

The club's cycling wing has taken delivery of a consignment of Harps cycling shorts and gilets, which might give some of our members and supporters that extra bit of inspiration in the Hills above Derrygonnelly or Fear events. Contact Donal Corrigan or Donal Fee to get hold of some top kit.

Our Under 8s hosted Trillick on Saturday morning for a Go Games session, much enjoyed by our three groups across the pitches. Thanks very much to all who helped out on the day, and good luck to them in the Moy GFC blitz this Saturday. One last training session this Wednesday evening at 6.15!
