It has been a quiet few weeks within the club, mainly due to the summer holiday season. However, that is about to change. We are giving away two £5,000 cash prizes in the club, one guaranteed and our weekly lotto has now a jackpot of £5,000, tickets can be bought in most shops in the town or from the clubrooms.
In 2 weeks time on the 5th August a guaranteed £5,000 first prize will be handed out on our final draw. Music on the night by Stephen Rafferty. After a very successful draw a great night is expected in the clubrooms. Everyone welcome. 

Commiserations to the Down Senior footballers, a great effort by all the lads and none more so that our own Micky Cunningham, to him, Sean, Colm and Rory well done and good luck in the qualifiers.

Senior/Minor Ladies

The senior and minor ladies will be training on Tuesday night at 7:00 pm.
Minor Boys
It was disappointment for our minor boys’ amalgamation of Patrick Rankins last Monday night, losing out by a single point to Maghery in a high scoring contest in Lisummon, 5 - 12 to 3 - 17. However, the result could have been a whole lot different if the lads had their shooting boots on as they failed to convert no less than 6 one-on-ones with the Maghery keeper and also hit the post on two occasions. The lads are back in action on Monday night with a home game against Clan na Gael which throws in at 7:30 pm and all players are asked to meet at the club no later than 6:45 pm.
U14 Boys
The U14 boys’ amalgamation of Patrick Rankins have a game away to Pearse Ógs on Tuesday night at 7:15 pm and all players are asked to meet at the club no later than 6:00 pm. Training will continue on Thursday evening from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
U14 Girls
The U14 girls have an away game on Monday night against Killeavy which throws-in at 7:30pm.
U12 Girls
The U12 girls are training on Tuesday and Thursday evening at the field from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
Due to the fact that the Cúl Camp is running all week they will be no U10 training this week. 
Underage Training
Please note that training for all our U6s, U8s, and U12s will take place every Friday night from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm at the field. All boys and girls at these age groups are very welcome to come along.

Police in Newry have arrested a 30 year old man on suspicion of drugs offences. 

The arrest follows the detection and seizure of class A, B & C drugs with a street value in the region of £5,000 by officers from the PSNI’s “D” District Support team in the Springfarm Heights area of Newry earlier in the week.
The man has been released on bail pending forensic reports.
Chief Inspector Joe McMinn said: “Good police work means that a significant quantity of drugs have been removed from sale. We understand that drug misuse is an issue of concern to the community and we are committed to keeping people safe by tackling drug supply.”
