The Harps Lotto jackpot, now £5600, was not won on Friday night. The numbers drawn were 7, 13, 21 and 28. £20 each went to John Burns and Julie Evans, both c/o Kevin Cassidy, and Darragh Burke, Derrygonnelly. This Sunday night’s draw will be in Doogies, with John and Louise plus Mary on duty.

The club's October committee meeting will be held this Thursday night at 9pm.

Many congratulations to our senior squad and all involved in preparing them on their league final win against St Joseph’s Ederney last Saturday. It has been a good tough season, with a very wide contribution from the squad members. The focus now moves to the next challenge for the group, in Corrigan Park on October 20th, and good luck to them as they get ready for that. Commiserations and full credit to St Joseph’s on their season and thank you to them for their willingness to rearrange the fixture, and full credit also to Kinawley who did a fine job in staging the fixture.

Congratulations also to our six players who received recognition at the Fermanagh GAA All Stars event last Friday evening. They would be the first to say that they receive them on behalf of their team-mates, but it was a great event for them to be part of, and well done to them all plus Teemore GFC who run the awards.

The minor girls lost out to Kinawley in their championship semi-final  last Wednesday bringing their season to an end. Many thanks to Donal , Louise and Abigail for their work with the group. It’s been a very good season of work and development for them. The senior Ladies lost their final league game away to Newtownbutler on Sunday. The Ladies are still second in the league and  have a chance of making the league final but are depending on results elsewhere to secure a playoff place. They have put in a huge effort this year, and are learning about playing at the higher level.

Well done to the Gaelic For Mothers and Others Group which travelled to Portmarnock on Saturday to participate  in the National Blitz . Thanks to Eadaoin , Eoghan and everyone who helped out with the G4MO squad over the season .


Canon Maguire Park still saw plenty of action over the weekend, with two Go Games Blitzes taking place. On Saturday morning, we had our Under 8s out in matches against Kinawley, Belnaleck and Trillick. The boys and girls had a brilliant end to their season, and the level of improvement was there for all to see. Thanks to our visiting teams for coming. Then on Sunday, we had our internal Under 12 Blitz to conclude the season for the Master Michael Farrell Memorial trophy. Again, a great series of matches. Thanks to the coaches and refs who came out and helped to run these events. They are absolutely central, right alongside senior teams or whatever, in what our club is about.
