Best Wishes
Our best wishes to club stalwarts Shane Reynolds and Orla Bohan who get married this Saturday in St Michael’s in Bornacoola. A very popular couple around the parish, Shane and Orla have been at the heart of the club for many years and both have served as players, administrators and even Scór performers with distinction for Bornacoola over many years. In a lengthy playing career, Shane won both Junior Championship and league medals with Bornacoola and while success eluded him at Senior level, he was very proud to be part of the Bornacoola team that regained it’s senior championship status in 1998 after nearly 40 years in the doldrums. He is currently the club Secretary.
Orla’s big onfield success came as part of the 2004 Ladies Junior Championship winning team; she has been involved in many administrative roles in recent years and has performed regularly in Scór for Bornacoola over the years. I’m sure this will be a great weekend for Shane, Orla and their families, and we wish you both all the very best in your married lives together.

Club Draw
The first Club Draw of the year takes place on Saturday night next in the Copper Still with music on the night as always. All ticket sellers are asked to return their tickets by Friday night to Kevin Mallon, Jackie Conboy or Shane Reynolds.

The GOAL mile held at the club grounds on New Year’s Day was another terrific success and subsequent events in Haiti have only served to undermine the importance of GOAL and its work with the underprivileged such as those affected by the earthquake disaster. This year’s GOAL mile raised a total of Eur9,657 and organizer Noel Mahon has been in touch to express his thanks to everyone who was involved. Indeed the membership of the GAA club are very proud of the fundraising work that Noel, a former player of distinction and prominent member, continues to carry out in this respect. Maith thú a Nollaig is lean ort leis an obair.

Training commences on Friday night next in the club grounds at 8.30pm. All players are again reminded that they will not be permitted to play for the club in 2010 unless they have paid their membership fee of Eur30.
