Lá na gClub
Magnificent sunshine and the nicest day of the year so far set the scene for Lá na gClub and our 125 year celebrations at the pitch in Dromod on Sunday last. It was a great occasion with over 200 parishioners enjoying the open air mass, flag raising ceremony, Sports, the Scór acts and underage blitzes. Well done to everyone who was involved in organising the day and in particular to Fr Gerry O’Brien, all those who worked on Bank Holiday Monday and again last Saturday to get the grounds ready for our celebrations, those who made sandwiches and other refreshments, Oliver Kelleher in Castlebar for providing medals for the underage games, Jacqui Muldowney for organising the sports and to everyone who helped in any way in organising what was a wonderful day for the community. Bhíomar go léir an bhródúil de Domhnaigh as an lá agus an club go ginearálta. Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
Last weekend’s scheduled games in Division 3 and 4 were cancelled due to our pitch being unplayable. This Saturday, the Senior team are in Shield action against Sean O Heslins in Ballinamore on Saturday evening at 6.30pm while on Sunday, the Division 4 team meet Melvin Gaels in Dromod at 2pm.
Tickets for our Park Development fundraiser are currently available from all members of the club and of course the finance generated will ensure the upkeep of our facilities in Dromod for the benefit of all in the parish. Priced at €20 each, there are a range of excellent prizes on offer including: 1st €3000, 2nd €1500 voucher sponsored by Sean and Deidre Farrell “Flair”, 3rd Two All Ireland Football tickets, 4th Two All Ireland Hurling tickets, 5th Dinner for 4 in Flynn’s Shannon Key West hotel, 6th Dinner for four in the Copper still, Dromod plus five more prizes of €100 each. We would ask every club member to put in a special effort to make this venture a success.
Our best wishes to John Mc Guinness who will be part of the Leitrim panel to take on Mayo in the Connacht Junior Championship semi-final on Friday evening next in Páirc Seán, so get along and support John and the lads if you can.
