Harps Notes 5th June 2016

posted 5 Jun 2017, 03:03 by Derrygonnelly Harps

The Harps Lotto jackpot, now £8700, was not won on Sunday night. The numbers were 15, 21, 24 & 29. £20 each went to Mary Keown, Glen East, Jenny and Glen Campbell, Derrygonnelly and plus Celia and Jimmy McGrath, Mulleek. We are in the Cosy this Sunday night, with Brendy, Aidy and Mary on duty.

The club's June Committee Meeting will take place on Thursday night at 9pm sharp.

Our Under 14s have made it to the championship semi final this Thursday evening in Kinawley at 7pm against Teemore. Teemore have had a very consistent season, and this will be a tough challenge, so good luck to our lads and their management. The Under 14s had a good win against St Josephs in their quarter final, with the whole panel contributing to the result. Our Under 12s were in action on Saturday morning in the Paul and Orla Bogue Memorial Blitz. Thank you very much to Tempo for their invite and hospitality at this event. Our Under 10s have completed their group games now, with some very good play in their last group game against Devenish  on Friday evening. It looks like they have qualified for the final of this competition on Saturday June 17th, when we host our annual Under 10 blitz for all of the teams in the competition. Our Minors had a good win against Kinawley last week, in a tactically challenging game, well contested by both sides. They are away to Belnaleck next Tuesday evening.

Our Senior team had a convincing win against Lisnaskea on Saturday evening, and they host Belcoo this Friday evening at 8pm. Our two juniors teams were unfortunate to have double walkovers on Sunday, but they should get some games this Saturday evening away to Devenish and home to Irvinestown.

Our club's preparations for hosting the All Ireland Feile competition on the weekend of June 23rd to 25th are ongoing. This is going to be one of the biggest operations we have ever taken on, especially on the Sunday with the possibility of eight matches, including two All Ireland finals at Canon Maguire Park. We'll need all hands on deck! A sizeable number of our families are also hosting young footballers from St Brigid's Roscommon that weekend. It is a fine occasion, for sure, and we hope it will prove enjoyable.

It was with sadness that our club's members heard of the passing recently of Sean Gallagher, Boho. Our sincere condolences to Sean's family, many of whom are very active Harps people.  

Finally, best wishes to our local Fleadh Fhearmanach committee with their endeavours this weekend, and to all competitors and visitors as well.
