Breakfast With Santa
We will be holding a "Breakfast with Santa" event on Sunday 21st December in Aughabrack Community Hall from 9.30-11.30am. All children and their parents within our parish are invited to a sit down cooked breakfast in Festive surroundings with Santa in attendance all morning for the children to meet and talk to about their Christmas wish-list!
We will not be charging an admission fee but a donation box will be available with all proceeds going to a local charity.
We are asking parents who plan to attend the event to book a place by contacting the club’s Coaching Officer Ciaran O'Kane either by telephone on 07967175815 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 19th December.
Men's Senior and Reserve Teams
Circuits/ core sessions will continue for men's Senior and Reserve players in the Dunamanagh clubrooms on Thursday nights at 8pm. These sessions will take place on a weekly basis until outdoor pitch based sessions resume in February 2015.
The first round heats of the Scór Sinsear competition will take place in January 2015 (exact dates and venues to be confirmed). The disciplines involved are:
1. Set Dancing;
2. Céilí Dancing;
3. Solo Singing;
4. Ballad Group;
5. Instrumental Music;
6. Recitation/ Storytelling;
7. Drama Act (previously known as Novelty Act) and
Last year we had participants in the Solo Singing and Drama Act disciplines. All our participants made it right through to the County final. Brendan Conway was unlucky to miss out on a medal in Solo Singing whilst the Drama Act, comprised of Brian Blee, Al Quinn, Jude O'Neill, Nuala Bradley (nee Conway) and Lenice Quinn (nee Devine) who acted out Niall "Barney" Conway's original comedy sketch "Ted and Dougal Visit Wolfe Tone", finished as runners-up within the county.
This year's competition is a great chance for us to show off the undoubted talent we have in the parish, so let's try and go one better this time and bring a county title back to our parish. Therefore, we would appeal to anyone aged 17 or over with an interest in taking part in any of the disciplines outlined above to get in touch with Carole Doherty or Niall "Barney" Conway as soon as possible.
The club training tops recently ordered have now been delivered and are available for collection from Eimear O'Kane. All tops must be paid for in full on collection. In the event that full monies are not paid the garment will be retained by the club until the outstanding sum is received.
Furthermore a limited number of older Clann na nGael Aughabrack Dunamanagh jerseys and hoodies are available to purchase at a discounted price. Anyone wishing to purchase one of these items is asked to contact Louise Quinn.
"Brides Through the Ages" and "Jigs and Reels" D.V.D.s
A limited number of D.V.D.s from the "Brides Through the Ages" and "Jigs and Reels" nights recently hosted by the club are available to purchase from Eimear O'Kane priced at £10 each. With Christmas just around the corner these items would make perfect stocking fillers!
This week's lotto letters were G, M, O and S. There was no jackpot winner nor did anyone match three letters. Brendan O'Neill was the subsequent lucky dip winner.
Next week's jackpot is £2040.
Finally the club wishes to take this opportunity to wish all members, volunteers and supporters a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
(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.
