Harps Notes 29th August 2017

posted 29 Aug 2017, 02:11 by Derrygonnelly Harps

The Harps Lotto jackpot, now £9900, was not won last night. The numbers drawn were 12, 15, 19 and 22. £20 each went to Martin Mellor, Belcoo, Jack Wadsworth, Derrygonnelly and Colm McCaffrey, Garrison. We are in Doogies this Sunday night. John, Louise and Mary are on duty together. Thank you to all of our Lotto promoters and to everyone who supports the club via the Lotto.

Well done to our seniors on their win in the first round of the championship on Sunday. They showed a very good mentality to take the result. The semi final draw sees them facing Roslea Shamrocks.

Thank you also to the club volunteers who were on duty around Canon Maguire Park as we hosted the championship double header on Saturday evening. As always, it takes a big collective effort to get things right, so thank you to everyone.

Our Under 16s and Under 12s should be back in action this week, with fixtures due out soon and to be posted on our online output. There would appear to be a chance that we will have a Reserve FC semi against the Gaels this weekend as well, and we will also seek to pubish details on as soon as they are at hand. Our Under 16s had a good win in a high scoring match against Enniskillen Gaels last Thursday.

Our Under 8s and Under 10s travelled to Kinawley on Saturday to take part in the Hughie Cathcart Memorial Blitzes and had a very enjoyable day indeed, getting piles of matches and emerging as runners up of the Under 8 tournament and winners in the Under 10 event. Thank you to everyone who gave up their time to look after the groups on the day. The Under 10s are pretty much finished up now, bar a few weeks of Sunday footy and all credit to them on a very skilful, committed year of football. Thank you very much to Kinawley GFC for the invite to take part. It was an excellent event in every respect.

Finally, it was with sadness that all Harps members heard of the passing of two people in our area last week. Sincere condolences to the McShea family on the death of Mrs Honora McShea, Monea and also to the Murphy family on the passing of Thomas Murphy from our neighbouring townland of Drumanane.
