The annual Killyclogher 10K and 5K took place last Saturday. The number of participants exceeded all previous years and established a new record. We also had record number of people helping. A big thank you to all who supported us and sponsored us and to all who participated. Even the weather was in our favour. A special word of thanks to those who put in so much effort in the months, weeks, days and hours before the mass start.

We have a number of major events this weekend. The talk in the GAA world is about front-door championships and back-door qualifiers but for the boys and girls of our Parish the only thing that matters at this time of the year is the Donnelly Cup. This Friday, 14thJune, is the date for our Primary Schools competitions.

On Saturday, it is the turn of ladies’ football to take centre stage. We are hosting two Ulster semi-finals, Derry v Antrim in the junior championship and Donegal v Cavan in the senior. The Derry v Antrim game is scheduled for 2:00pm followed by the senior. We would appreciate a big turnout of stewards and workers to ensure the smooth running of this attractive double header.

On Sunday, we have Coalisland as visitors for reserve and senior football league games at 2:15 and 3:45pm. Our U21s were narrowly defeated by Dungannon in the quarter-final on Monday evening in a very exciting and hard-fought game. We will welcome many of the U21 players to reserve and senior team action on Sunday.

The senior ladies are at home to Killeeshil in the league on Friday night.

The minor boys defeated Strabane on Friday night past and are away to Omagh on Friday evening.

The U14 boys lost to a very strong Donaghmore team in the championship last Tuesday.

The U14 girls were defeated by Loughmacrory on Sunday evening in the league and by Dromore last Thursday in the championship bringing their season to an end.

Our annual Golf Classic takes place in Omagh Golf Club on Friday 5th July. Tee times can be booked from Enda McCrory, Sean O’Kane, Ciaran McBride, James Molloy or Dermy Carlin.

Sincere sympathy to the family circle of the late James Quinn, and especially his son Neil who was a prominent player for us, and the wide Quinn family connection has always been very supportive.
