Club Notes: February 8th

We had no draw for Lottsodoo this week as we cancelled our Bingo as a mark of respect to Anthony Connolly, our Bingo co-ordinator.

There will be two draws next Monday night. Death and Anthony seem so far apart because he was so full of life, so full of the joys of life. The big smile, the warm greeting and the friendly words. That was Anthony. A real gentleman. Although many an opposing forward unlucky enough to get in Anthony’s way as he charged out of the square with the ball tucked safely under his arm and the front bucket down, might not use the word gentle.

Seriously, Anthony lived life to the full and was happy in the company of people. He loved the stories, the banter and the craic. Anthony was a whole-hearted footballer and enjoyed success at both county and club level. He also managed our club teams, senior, reserve and youth, and continued to be a good committee man.

In his fundraising for club, parish and charities he was enthusiastic with his efforts and generous with his time and money. He also gave good support to our hurlers, handballers, ladies footballers and was a great man for Scór. He welcomed visiting teams to Ballinamullan.

Born and reared in Dromore, he was always proud of his roots and was just as proud of Killyclogher. In the first few years after his marriage he played for Newtownstewart and Omagh before coming to live in Killyclogher and getting totally involved in the club. It is as a Dromore and Killyclogher man that he will be remembered. We often joked about the blue blood in his veins.

He will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him and especially by his long-time friend, companion and wife Bridie. Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam.

Meeting tomorrow night, Thursday, at 8:30pm.

2016 was a very good year for us in terms of competitions won with success in Scór, Handball and of course Senior Football with the winning of the O’Neill Cup. It was also a very good year for us in terms of widespread participation in and promotion of a range of activities so it is only right that we should come together in a grand social night. Make it a date, Friday 10th March, for a Dinner Dance to look back at our success in 2016 and to look forward to an active and enjoyable year in 2017. Dress code is optional but feel free to go Black Tie and Formal Dress if you like. It’s entirely up to you.

Lights are being installed in the skills wall and we are also upgrading some equipment in the gym. Last Man/Woman Standing based on forecasting winners in the seven rounds of the National Football League Division 1 is now being promoted. The first NFL game is on Saturday 4th February so please get your entry in. Contact Sean O’Kane or any Senior Footballer.

All the best to Conall McCann, Tiernan McCann and Mark Bradley and Tyrone in the McKenna Cup Final on Saturday evening.

Well done to Fergal Meenagh and Nathan Donnelly who have been selected on the Tyrone U21 Panel.

Cappagh underage players Oran Toal and Michael Rafferty both played on the Dean Maguirc College U14 team that won the Ulster Colleges Gerry Brown Cup last week. The team was jointly managed by our Terry McCann. Well done to all.

We wish Joe Lowry a speedy recovery from his recent operation.

Congratulations to Mark Bradley on winning a Gaelic Life All Star.
