U-21 Championship: Our U-21 match with Mullinalaghta was called off at the weekend. Due to the unusual timing of the match at 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon we were unable to field a team as many of our players were working. Unfortunately a reasonable request for a date or time change would not be facilitated and we therefore had to concede the match which means this concludes our participation in the competition. This is a particularly disappointing turn of events given that this fixture had been changed multiple times over the last month for reasons which had nothing to do with our club. We would like to thank the management team of Séamus Noonan, Ken Leonard and Gearóid Nertney and the panel of players for the hard work they put in over the past couple of months.

Lotto: The draw was held in The Village Inn, Drumlish on Monday last, November 6th. The Jackpot was €8,400. Results are currently available on the club website and will be in next week’s notes. Tickets are available from the usual outlets and from any member of the executive.

Hard Luck: Commiserations to clubmen Padraic Davis, Pete McWade and Ian Higgins who were unlucky to lose out with Mohill against Castlebar in the Connacht Club Championship at the weekend. We would like to congratulate the 3 men on an extremely succesful 3 year tenure with Mohill which saw them land 2 championships, 3 leagues in a row and U21 championships.

Men’s Shed: Fr Manning Gaels are delighted to see progress on the setting up of a men’s shed initiative for the community of Drumlish/Ballinamuck. More details will be available in the coming weeks.

Engagement: Congratulations to senior player Liam Lynch who got engaged to Breda Corrigan recently. We wish the couple health and happiness together for the future.

Sympathy: We would like to extend our sympathies to Liz Breslin on the passing of her brother Michael Hagan recently. Solas na bhFlaitheas air.
