The £10000 Harps lotto jackpot was won on Sunday night! The numbers drawn were 6, 8, 9 and 27.  Well done to Jarlath O'Brien from Garrison who had all four numbers!  We start our jackpot again this week at £2100 and this Sunday nights draw is in the Linnett Inn with Peter and Gerry at the controls with Mary.
Pride of place this week has to go to our U16 Girls who produced a stunning second half to claim the B Championship trophy, defeating Belnaleck on a 6-02 to 3-10 scoreline. Well done to the Harpettes and to their managers who can reflect on a year of great progress with this squad, and definitely look ahead with a lot of optimism.
Our U16 boys did a bit of trekking to get to Teemore on Saturday evening to face Kinawley in their Championship semi-final. In an excellent game of football despite the conditions, the game ended in a draw. Replay takes place this Thursday in Derrylin at 6.30pm.  Good luck to the lads.
Our Senior team defeated Roslea at the second time of asking on Friday night to book their place in the Championship final. Well done to the lads and management. Thank you to Fr Jimmy for moving the mission ceremony starting time on Friday night to accommodate us.
Our Junior As are still waiting for their Reserve A championship final to be fixed. No details as yet but keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.  As we look ahead to the championship finals, we encourage you to dust off the flags again and get the club colours flying high around the parish.  An order of club flags should be with us by the end of the week, details to follow, keep an eye online. 

Our U12s are playing Kinawley tonight (Wednesday) in Kinawley under lights at 6.45pm, bus leaves from the main street at 5.45pm.  They are then at home to Teemore at 4pm on Saturday.
Sunday morning Footy is now over for the year. Thank you to a very dedicated band of coaches. We might have one more outing for Under 8s but the season is over for the rest. Thanks again to the coaches, young and older for coming out every week and putting together enjoyable sessions to develop our future footballers.
We are starting to put together our Christmas order of O'Neills club gear. Don't miss out!! Fitting nights take place tonight (Wednesday) 7-9pm and Friday night 7-9pm in the Clubrooms.
Congratulations to all our Couch to 5k participants who completed their 5k on Saturday. You should be proud of the work you have put in over the last ten weeks, and well done on achieving your goal. We hope you continue to walk or run. Special thanks to coaches Caroline Greene and Mary Rutledge along with their squad of volunteers for their encouragement and guidance throughout the programme.
Finally, the club wishes Fermanagh Ladies all the very best of luck in the Junior All-Ireland final. We especially wish our own Eimear Smyth all the very best as she graces the turf of Croke Park. There are seats available on the club bus going to Croke Park, contact Louise Dundas. The game will be televised live on TG4.
