The sympathies of the club are extended to the Farrell family in Cloncolory on the sad passing of Rosie Farrell on Thursday last. The Farrell’s have been involved in the Bornacoola GAA club for many years. Predeceased by her husband Paddy, we extend our sympathies to her children Pat, Christy, Tom, Sean, Peter, Michael, Mary and Bernadette, her sister Margaret as well as all her extended family and friends. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a n-anam dhílis.
Youth Membership of €5 per child (maximum of €10 per household) and full adult membership (€10 for non-playing and €30 for playing membership) is now available from Jackie Conboy, Pat Farrell, Patricia Bohan or Shane Reynolds. All those intending to play for the club in 2009, at both adult and underage level, should note that they must have their membership paid before they can play this year. The club are also planning a registration day for all underage players in the coming weeks.
The Club Draw was cancelled on Saturday night last as a mark of respect to the late Rosie Farrell. However, it has been reorganised for this Saturday night in the Copper Still. Music on the night and all ticket sellers are asked to return their tickets to Kevin Mallon, Shane Reynolds, Gerry Boyle or Jackie Conboy before Saturday night.

CLG Liatroma are organising foundation level coaching courses for all team mentors on Friday and Saturday next in Ballinamore and Drumkeerin. All of those involved in a coaching capacity with our club teams are expected to attend if they have not already completed the foundation level course. Further information is available from club Secretary Shane Reynolds 087 9751993. Even if you are not involved with one of the club teams this year but intend to get involved in the future, it is recommended that you attend the course as it will be compulsory for anyone working with teams in the future to have this qualification.
