Glasdrumman club notes

January 03, 2018

As we bid good bye to 2017  let us remind ourselves about what a  year it has been  for us.  An All Ireland Champion in Scór na nÓg who sang the National Anthem for the All Ireland Ladies' Final in Croke Park Comhchairdeas  do  Niamh McDowell . It would be remiss of us  to forget that our ballad group of Niamh Mc Dowell, Ciara Rooney, Tara Grant ,Aoife Grant and Clodagh Rodgers   are the South Down Champions  for 2017 and 2018 in Scór na nÓg and that our instrumental group of Peter Doran , Aoife and Dana Leckey , Cara Sloan and Niamh  Mc Dowell  are South Down champions for 2018.  Our Senior Scór team of Donna Feeney, Declan and Sean  Grant and Tony Bannon won the Moya McCormack cup for" Spirit of Scór ".  Connaire Harrison established himself  as a figure on the National Stage with  his outstanding displays in the Red and Black of our County as well as our own team in retaining our Division 3 Status.   Our young players  distinguished themselves playing for  the Eire Óg amalgamations with our neighbours Ballymartin a well as  for their St. Columban's squad in the Corn Cú Chulainn. Our young ladies were a credit for both the County as well as Ballymartin throughout the season.  We are also glad that William James Smith from our Club has represented the County with great distinction in his position as Cultural Officer.

 We are fast approaching our 50th anniversary of the reformation of the Club in 1969  and are looking forward to the compilation of a comprehensive  history of our Club. Anyone  interested in assisting with this project  please contact any committee member.

We wish Eamonn Burns, Connaire, Shane Harrison and the rest our Down squad  all the best in the upcoming Dr. McKenna Cup campaign.

 

We wish all our members a very Happy and Prosperous New Year for 2018 and remember those who have passed away in 2017 particularly Maurice Hayes who played such an in integral and important part in assembling the All Ireland Winning Down Teams of 1960 and 61  as well as being a great public servant and Gaeilgeoir who represented all that was good in our Nationalist  Identity .  I measc na naomh go raibh sé
