Gaelic Start Programme
The "Gaelic Start" coaching programme for all schoolchildren between Primary 1 and Primary 4 continues on Saturday 8th March at 10am in the Dunamanagh clubrooms.
We would encourage children and their parents to attend each week as the sessions are conducted by qualified and experienced coaches and designed to give children a good grounding in essential skills for playing field sports.
There was disappointment for our representatives at the Scór Sinsear Tyrone County Final held on Sunday 2nd March at Killeeshil St. Mary's club hall.
In the Novelty Act section Al Quinn, Jude O'Neill, Brian Blee, Lenice Quinn (nee Devine) and Nuala Bradley (nee Conway), performing a script written by Niall Conway entitled "Ted and Dougal Meet Wolfe Tone", finished as runners-up to Omagh St. Enda's.
Meanwhile Brendan Conway performed admirably in the Solo-Singing discipline as he sung "The Night Visiting" most commonly associated with Luke Kelly of "The Dubliners".
Despite the disappointment for those involved in failing to win there was nevertheless an immense sense of pride as they were a credit to their friends, families and indeed the club as a whole. It is also worth bearing in mind that Tyrone boasts more National Scór Sinsear winners than any other county so they faced incredibly strong opposition.
In the bigger picture, having allowed our involvement with the Scór competition to slide for a few years, the fact that we were able to enter three disciplines in Scór na nÓg and two in Scór Sinsear, with county finalists in three of those five categories, was a fantastic achievement upon our return to the competition.
We wish to thank all involved for their time, effort and professionalism and we hope their success will inspire more people within our parish to become involved and participate next year.
The Youth Club for children in Primary 4-7 will continue in the Dunamanagh clubrooms on Monday 10th March at 7pm. The new development is of course subject to an ongoing trial period in order to gauge numbers and interest so it is important that there is a sizeable and sustained turnout each week.

Beginners' Yoga with Sinead McGilligan continues in the Dunamanagh clubrooms on Thursday 6th March. The class will run from 7.30-8.30pm and is open to both men and women.
Attendees are asked to bring a mat or blanket. The classes will cost £4 each and everyone is welcome.
Coaches' Feedback Session
The coaches' feedback session, which the club had been scheduled to host on Saturday 1st March in the Dunamanagh clubrooms was postponed for one week. It will now take place on Saturday 8th March at 7.30pm. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The event will allow volunteers who kindly assist with the coaching of teams at all levels within our club to attend and provide feedback on current coaching arrangements and how they can be improved. All coaches are therefore asked to make the effort to attend. Please note food will also be provided to those in attendance.

All persons associated with the club extend their deepest sympathy to the family and friends of John Browne, Ballinamallaght on their recent sad bereavement.
(Feb 25th 2014)
(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.
