Harps Notes 8th October 2018

posted 8 Oct 2018, 02:31 by Derrygonnelly Harps

The Harps Lotto jackpot, now £8400, was not won on Sunday night. The numbers were 5, 11, 14 and 21. £20 each went to Karl Kehoe, Enniskillen, Damian McCauley, Monea, and Siobhan Gilleece, Boho. We are in The Cosy Bar this Sunday night, with Brendy, Aidy and Mary Cox on duty.

Thank you to everyone who came out again to help with stewarding, refreshments and a myriad of other tasks as we hosted another double header last Saturday. That should be us finished for the year now, but it has taken a great effort from everyone to make things run as well as they have.

It was another busy weekend for our underage section of players as our Under 10s travelled to Moy on Saturday to take part in a very highly thought of blitz event, in which our lads came up against opponents from across Ulster. Next day saw the first Under 10 and Under 12 internal competition for the Michael Farrell Memorial Cup. Our players played out a series of well contested but sporting matches, before Rory Smyth was the first recipient of the cup on behalf of his team. Well done and thank you to all of the players and mentors across these events. Our Minor and Under 13 girls are still active, plus our Under 17 boys, who are hopeful of getting to play Enniskillen Gaels this week in the championship.

Well done to our Seniors who managed to defeat Kinawley in the Division One semi final on Sunday and are now scheduled to play St Josephs in the final. Like the Under 17 matter, details of this fixture will be circulated through club outlets when we have them.

Saturday saw our Gaelic for Mothers and Others squad heading down to Portmarnock, Dublin on Saturday for a superbly organised LGFA national blitz, hosted by Naomh Mearnog. We were warmly welcomed by our own Patsy Haren, President of Naomh Mearnog aand had a brilliant day overall. This entire venture has proved to be a great success, and thanks to everyone who has steered it. Last session for the G4MO Ladies is this Thursday night.  

Finally, it was with great sadness that Harps members heard of the recent passing of Mary Meehan, Monea, whose funeral took place last week. Sincerest sympathies are extended to the Meehan family.
