GOAL Mile Run/Walk
We will once again be doing our bit for charity this year and helping people in the developing world as we host the GOAL Mile Run/Walk on Saturday 24th January. The run/walk will start at 3pm from Aughabrack Community Hall and, after covering a distance of approximately one mile, will terminate back at the same location. Refreshments will be available for all participants
The cost is £5 per person or £10 for families with all monies raised going to the GOAL charity. We would therefore ask as many club members and indeed members of the general public as possible to take part and support this worthy cause.
Anyone interested in participating in a cycling based fundraiser likely to take place during the summer of 2015 is asked to contact Barry McGill as soon as possible to register their interest. At this juncture we are keen to ascertain interest levels in order to gauge the feasibility of such an event.
We can confirm that the price structure for club membership for 2015 is as follows:
Adult playing Members £30;
Adult non-playing Members £20;
Juveniles (16-18 year olds) £5.
We would encourage existing club members to renew their subscriptions as soon as possible. Furthermore we ask the significant number of people who have allowed their membership to lapse in recent years to renew it and rejoin for the year ahead. Finally we would also welcome any new members who wish to join the club.
All players are reminded that monies must be paid before the commencement of the 2015 league season. Any player who fails to pay the membership fees will not be considered for selection and similarly the club will decline to cover any medical expenses incurred in the event of an injury being sustained.
Note that Membership will be collected on Saturday 24th january at the GOAL walk with Registrar available to collect at the Hall.
We wish to draw the public's attention to the fact that the club now owns two defibrillators which can be used in cases of cardiac arrest emergencies. They are located immediately inside the clubroom doors at Daniel O'Connell Park, Aughabrack and St. Patrick's Park, Dunamanagh. The defibrillators should not be tampered with or used for non-emergency situations.
G.A.A. National Club Draw 2015
As previously advised the Trustees of the G.A.A. based in Croke Park, Dublin are running a national draw with all proceeds going directly to clubs whilst the prizes are provided by the Association at national level. Tickets are currently on sale priced at £10 each and we would encourage the public to support the draw as monies raised from ticket sales will go directly into the club's coffers and support our efforts to continue delivering facilities for all the community. The draw will take place on Friday 27th February 2015 and there are fifteen prizes to be won. For further information please log on to www.gaa.ie/nationalclubdraw2015.
Ticket sellers are asked to note that returns should be made to the club secretary Ambrose Houston no later than Saturday 24th January and all sellers are encouraged to make a big push before that date as this is a potentially useful fundraiser for the club
Letters for last week were I,J,M,T .There was no jackpot winner but Michael McKenna matched three letters.

The club would like to extend it’s sympathy to the Morris family of Plumbridge and the Doherty family of Dunamanagh on their recent bereavement.
(Sept 27th 2011)
you for the days,
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me,
I'm thinking of the days,
I won't forget a single day believe me."
The above lyrics, taken from a song originally sung by the Kinks, seem
entirely apt to summarise the feelings of everyone concerned with the
club after the recent announcement of Brian Dooher's retirement from
County football. His county career began with an Ulster Minor medal in
1993 before he went on to make his mark in the Senior ranks winning 3
All-Irelands (two as captain), 5 Ulster Championships, 2 National
Leagues, 3 All Stars, 2 Railway Cups, 1 International Rules Series and 1
Sigerson Cup. His decision brings to an end the County career of arguably
the most effective and influential player the County has ever produced.
We thank him for all the joy and pride he has bestowed upon us and we
look forward to seeing him in the club jersey for years to come.
