Some spaces still available on both. Contact Seán Antón Ó Conalláin on 07709714100 or [email protected] Everyone welcome.


Francis Donnelly Tournament: was a huge success; weather was perfect and football was first class. Congratulations to Eglish on winning the Cup; our own lads won the Shield while Galbally went home with the plate and Kildress lifted the Bowl.  A huge well done to the organising group. Organisational perfection; every detail covered with our guests left in awe. Thanks also to the army of volunteers from referees and umpires; to cooks and hospitality crew; to runners and clearer uppers.  A fantastic show of clubmanship. Thanks also to Jim and Richard for taking photos and to Conor Mc Gahan and Gary Darcy for their services as official referees Well done all. 


Training and Fixtures:

Senior and Reserves: Great effort by our Senior men in the Championship V Killyclogher.  Unfortunately we couldn’t get over the line having played some brilliant football and having been ahead for most of the match.  Back to league action next Sunday at 12pm away to Dungannon. Check TyroneGaa link for results and next fixtures for both Seniors and Reserves.


U6.5’s; U8/U10 Boys: Monday night coaching sessions continue every week at 6:30pm.

U12 Lads: Coaching continues Mon 6:15 - 7:30pm and  Wed 6:15 - 7:30pm. U16 lads: Wow, what a feeling.  Both our U16 lads teams have done fantastically well in their respective leagues and look likely to qualify for the knock out stages.  Well done to both players and mgt and good luck as the season heads to its finale.

P2-P7 Ladies: We will be hosting a blitz on Sat 21st which will act as a season finale. Coaching continues Mondays at 6:30pm.
