Events and notices from Brackaville GFC.
In the weekly lotto fundraising draw no one matched all four numbers and winning the Jackpot. But four members matched 3 numbers and they were Erin Graham, Mary Morgan, Jarlath Mc Cann and Kevin Mc Crory. The numbers drawn were 1, 3, 5 and 10. Next weeks lotto will be £650. Anyone wishing to avail of the Annual or six monthly Lotto scheme can contact Johnny Gillen or any Committee member to get the Lotto plan set up.
Membership for the incoming year is rapidly drawing to a close, with Sunday 27th March the deadline. No membership can be accepted after this deadline as the list of members is sent digitally to Croke Park and cannot be amended once this has been done. It is essential that all players have their membership paid before this date, failing to do so will prevent them from playing football for the incoming year, all non-playing members too are encouraged to renew their membership. Also by becoming a member, you are showing your commitment to Brackaville Owen Roes and are permitted to participate fully in the workings of our club. If you know anyone who is interested in becoming a member of a GAA club, bring them along with you to register, as new members are always welcome. Membership can be paid to club registrars’ Johnny Gillen and Paul Barrett in the social club every Sunday evening between 9pm and £10. Membership for the year is priced at £20 per person, £30 per couple and £10 for Senior Citizens.
Training for the Senior Panel will continue on Tuesday and Thursday night and all players will be informed of time and venue. Training for the U-6 and U-8 team will be on at Primate Dixon Primary School on Monday from 6pm to 7pm. And training for the U-10 team will be at St Josephs College from 6pm – 7pm, while training for the U12 team will be at St Josephs College from 7pm to 8pm. Training for the U14 team will be on Tuesday night at 6.30 at the field. Congratulations to Owen Roe Og Rían McHugh on being awarded a college All-Star for his consistent performances with St Joseph’s College. However, commiserations to Ronan Fox, Dwayne McKenna and Rían on their exit of the All-Ireland series with St Joseph’s at the weekend; although they bowed out at the semi-final, the lads still have a lot to be proud of, having been crowned Ulster Champions. Best of Luck to Sean Corr and St Patrick’s Academy in the Mc Crory Cup Final in Armagh on Wednesday. Anyone who wishes to receive the Breac an Bhile notes via e-mail or have anything that they want to include in the notes can do so by emailing me firstname.lastname@example.org . The Owen Roe Og Disco was a huge success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all of our young Gaels that attended and I’m sure it wont be the last night out for the Owen Roe Og’s.
Brackaville are playing host to the Tyrone County ASAP (Alcohol and Substance Abuse Programme) officers on Wednesday 23rd March at 8pm to address players and members of the community in relation to Alcohol and Substance Abuse, how they are affecting the daily lives of us all and to educate us on the pitfalls and dangers of it. This is a very important evening and should be attended by everyone concerned.
U14’s had a free weekend; next game at home this Saturday to Killeeshil; times will be distributed at training on Tuesday night at 6.30pm at the pitch training.
Breac an Bhile GFC Club and committee would like to extend its deepest sympathies to Gervin family Brackaville and the Mc Kenna family Dungannon after the untimely death Dolores, and to the Donnelly family Coalisland on the death of Mary Donnelly. Our prayers are with them at this time
