Harps Notes 23rd Oct 2017

posted 23 Oct 2017, 02:38 by Derrygonnelly Harps

The Harps Lotto jackpot, now £2600, was not won on Sunday night. The numbers were 17, 23, 28 and 29. £20 each went to Vera Corrigan, Boho, Gerry Burns, Boho, and Noel Shaw, Belleek. We are in the Cosy Bar this Sunday night, with Aidy Leonard, Brendy, and Mary Cox on duty.

Good luck to our senior squad and management against Armagh Harps in the Ulster Club quarter final this Saturday evening at 7.00 in Brewster Park. A big support from Harps and Fermanagh supporters would be much appreciated.

Hard luck to our Under 16s who lost out to Kinawley in the League Final on Saturday. Kinawley played very well on the day all over the pitch, with great intensity. The Harps had loads of good, honest effort, but just didn't pull it together as in previous games. We now prepare for our outing in the Spirit of Paul McGirr Ulster Club championship against the Donegal winners, most likely on November 11th.

Canon Maguire Park hosted two league finals on Saturday, thank you to all of the club volunteers who assisted in these events, with special mention to Jonny Cameron who refereed the Under 12 final between Devenish and St Pats very well indeed. Thanks also to those involved in organising the reception in the clubrooms on Sunday evening for the Under 14 and Under 16 girls squads. This was a very nice way to finish off 2017 for this group. They have put in a great effort all year, and had silverware, plus the All Ireland trophy, to show for it.

Finally it was with sadness that Harps members heard of the passing of Pat Geoff Burns in Australia recently, a playing member of the Boho St Fabers 1965 JFC team, and also of Lucy Kelly, nee Cox in Oxfordshire. To the Burns and Kelly families and relatives, sincere condolences.
