St Eunans man James Connors refs the game with Convoys Gerard McHugh Snr and Jnr as linesmen. All support for this game will be greatly appreciated. *G4M&O National Blitz*Our G4M&O team travelled to Naomh Mearnog, Portmarnock on Saturday past to take part in their second National Blitz. This year was the biggest ever with over 1500 players participating. The day began with a mass warm up conducted by Irelands Mr Motivator, then it was off to the more serious stuff, the games. They won all of their five matches with victories over Clonakilty (Cork), Kilbride (Roscommon), Curry (Sligo), Royal Gaels (Meath) and the hosts Naomh Mearnog. The Ladies recently played Kilbride in Croke Park in a half time exhibition game in which they were defeated so this victory was particularly sweet for them, (Yes, these games are supposed to be non-competitive!!). The day showcased all the things that the G4M&O has to offer: plenty of skill, commitment, camaraderie and loads of fun. On the way home they had an enjoyable bus journey with lots of great singers and comedians on board, they stopped in the Fiddlers Reef, Carrickmacross for food and refreshments and eventually back to the Beachcomber Bar where they were entertained by the one and only DJ Mo Kelly. To quote one of the Mammies, “don’t know when I laughed as much, complete headers”, this sums up everything about their day. The team would like to thank their bus driver Liam Mc Laughlin for his service and patience and a special thanks to Marti Barrett for all the hard work, commitment and dedication preparing them for the day. Squad: Agnes Ryan, Cheryl Ní Bháile, Sharon Graham, Noelle White, Megan Hunter, Tracy Peoples, Yvonne Mcglynn, Sinead Hagan, Aisling Dorrian, Neasa Mc Bride, Paula Cullen, Aoife Deeney, Sinead McFadden, Kelly Mc Kinley, Sharon Mc Vey-Peoples*U13s Win Shield Final*CLG BnaG 4-11 Cloughaneely 1-5 Our U13s finished their season on a high last night with a great win over Cloughaneely in the Shield Final. The boys produced their best all round team performance and playing with a strong breeze in the first half they ran up a 10 point lead in the first half. With strength on the bench for the second half they were never going to let the Falcarragh men back into the game. Great credit to the boys who trained hard all season and improved with every match. Special mentions to Eoin O’Donnell for his great defending last night, Shane Black who scored 1-6, and Reece Ufton and James O’Donnell who improved with every game this year. Well done also to their manager Nigel Black for all his hard work with the lads over the year.*Ulster GAA Student Bursary*We would recommend any of our student members to have a look at the Ulster GAA Student Bursary as a means to assist them in their studies.
