Finance/Fundraising meeting will be held in Aislann Rann na Feirste Wednesday night at 8pm. The items to be discussed are
We need lots of help in so many areas of these fundraising activities and even if you havn't been involved before that if anything is more the reason to get stuck in now for a few short months.
There are two projects coming up within the Club and we look to support the development committee as well of course as our Seniors moving up to Division two and the need to support them. This along with the ongoing great work by the Minor board in creating excellent development of underage football. It means that as a Club we must keep moving forward even in difficult economic times.
The Club is not about the few who serve on the committee...They are powerless without help....it is the entire community of players, parents, families, friends,supporters neighbours etc. It is not only about football or indeed sport but involvement and improving the community . Therefore all help is greatly appreciated whatever that is.
The aim this year is to concentrate fundraising nights on these few winter months ..leaving the summer free to concentrate on the games.
All attention turns now to this Saturday and the Scrap Saturday round up of Scrap Metal from the Lower Rosses area. This is a great opportunity to clear out your sheds, back gardens, etc and take everything to the Banks 9am-4pm. We need help all this week in gathering in items that people have asked us to remove. If you have items or know of items of scrap which require moving...please call John on 0876963509. This is an important fundraiser.
A point was not enough to declare Naomh Muire as league Champions todays as Burt can technically still catch us. However, it may be the crucial last point required as Burt must now win all their remaining 5 games....so if Burt drop any points...Naomh Muire will be league Champions. Unfortunetly, the league will not conclude now until February at the earliest... due to a rule that December/January are closed months. Mixed day therefore with promotion as champions just a kick away....but now this having to wait and see until February.
The match itself was a really tense and nervous affair and neither team showed any of their seasons form. It was pretty much point for point throughout and on the day either side could have pushed on and won. It brings to an end and overall strong league campaign in 2011...and the very strong likelihood of promotion which was the original goal at the beginning of the year.

A Stephen Griffin (0-09) inspired St. Nauls came away with the points from the banks today after a strong display. The opening period was pretty even and it was nearly ten minutes before the first score was registered, that going to the visiting team. Playing quick ball through the middle St. Nauls notched up their second point shortly afterwards and then went a further point ahead through a stephen Griffin free moments later. A strong performace a midfield setup another number of scores while Naomh Muire had missed a number of chances following good attacking play. Naomh Muire's first score came from corner forward Ciaran McGinely shortly before half time at which stage St. Nauls had put eight points on the scoreboard.
With such a big gap the home team knew they had an uphill battle in the second half. They broke even in terms of possession but the visitors kept the scoreboard ticking over and despite a number of gaol chances the home team could not bridge that gap. Two penalties, one converted in the second half was not to be enough and St. Nauls ran out deserving winners in the end.
The league is still in Naomh Muire's hands and a trip to Naomh Colmcille next week has now taken on a new importance. We wish the management and the team all the best next week and hope that they can finish the job.
