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.

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.

On Sunday last, our reserves seemed to be well on the way to a league victory but a lapse in the middle of the second half saw the game swing in Ardboe’s favour and they ran out winners. Our senior men had a really dogged fight to eventually come out on top, 0-09 to 0-08. This victory was made possible by the combined effort of the starting 15 and subs, as well as some outstanding individual performances. Next up is the home senior and reserve games with Coalisland on Sunday 16th June.

Killyclogher 10K – Saturday 8th June 2019

The ninth annual O’Neills Killyclogher 10K and 5K takes place on Saturday 8th June 2019 at 11:00am from the club’s Ballinamullan GAA grounds. Both courses present a great opportunity for setting Personal Best times for participants due to its flat and fast nature in a picturesque country setting on the edge of Omagh town.

The event is chip-timed and over the years has attracted some of the best running talent across the region. Last year’s 10K was won by Keith Shiels, Foyle Valley AC, in a time of 32:21 and the first female home was Grace Carson from Mid Ulster AC. Previous winners have included Omagh Harrier’s Stevie Duncan and Paul Barbour and Anne Marie McGlynn, Lifford AC.

This community driven event is for all ages and abilities. In conjunction with the Enda Dolan Foundation, a Couch to 5K started on Tuesday 30th April 2019 at Youth Sport Omagh with over 260 runners registering for the event.

The first 400 registered for the 10K and 5K events will receive a T-Shirt. Participants can pre-register on the Athletics NI website or on the morning of the event. Post race refreshments for all runners and walkers will be provided in the adjoining Dún Uladh centre afterwards.

The nominated charities for this year’s event are The Gina Carrigan Forget Me Not Fund and The Enda Dolan Foundation. For further details see the Killyclogher 10K or Killyclogher GAA Facebook pages.

On Sunday last our senior and reserve teams achieved a double over Edendork. The reserves got the evening off to a good start with a very big turnout of players and then went on to score a big win. Our seniors showed up well in the first half to push ahead with a score of 1-06 to 0-03 at the interval. After ten minutes in the second half it was 1-08 to 0-05. We lost the initiative and let them back into the game. The flair may have gone but the fighting spirit was still there even when they made it 1-08 to 1-07. There was a steely determination to win the league points. That’s just what we did. Next up in a starred game, we travel to Ardboe on Sunday 2nd June.

The senior ladies began their league last Sunday but were defeated by Ardboe. They are at home to Clonoe this Sunday at 7:00pm.
