Detectives are appealing for information following the report of a burglary at a house located in the Church Rock area of Camlough. 
 
Detective Constable McCartan said: “It was reported that between the hours of 10:00pm and 10:30pm hours Saturday 24th June 2017, a male described as being in his 30’s, of a slim build, with dark hair and wearing a denim jacket gained entry to a house in the Church Rock area of Camlough via a bedroom window. The male suspect was then disturbed by the home owners and made off with several bank cards and a sum of money. 
 
The home owners were not injured as a result of the break in but were left badly shaken.
 

We are appealing to anyone that may have any information, in particular we are appealing to anyone that may have witnessed a suspicious black hatchback car or the male suspect in the area at the time to contact detectives at Ardmore Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference 1404 of 24/06/17. Or, alternatively if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 Senior Men

Our senior men recorded a hard fought one point home win over Keady on Friday evening, 1 – 8 to 1 – 7.

Following a cagey opening to the game Mark McCabe put the Shanes ahead with a well taken point with Keady replying minutes later with a pointed free. Two David McCabe points, both from frees, edged the Shanes ahead before a Paul O’Rourke point, again from a placed ball, gave the Shane’s a three-point advantage midway through the first-half. A Mark McCabe score stretched their lead to four before a Ryan Quinn ball found McCabe in space in front of goal and he made no mistake from close range and the Shane’s now led by seven. Keady responded with their second point of the half but it was quickly cancelled out when David McCabe fired over from long range. A late first-half free saw Keady register their third point and go into the break six in arrears, 1 – 6 to 0 – 3.

The Shane’s made a great start to the second period with substitute Eamon McCabe slotting over following a powerful run from the halfway line. The home side were now seven to the good and in total control but some sloppy play in the middle of the field saw Keady drive forward and following a foul in the small square they were awarded a penalty. The resulting kick was sent low to Conor McKeown’s right and Keady were now only four behind. This score lifted the away side and they scored the next four points, two from frees, to level the game. The Shane’s had a number of good scoring opportunities to make the game safe but failed to make the most of them and it took a late point from the boot of David McCabe to edge the home side in front again, a lead which they held until the final whistle and claim a narrow win, 1 – 8 to 1 – 7.

Early Sunday afternoon and the senior men were back in action away to Eire Óg and after another tough contest the game ended all square at 2 – 9 apiece.

The sides swapped points in the opening exchanges with Matthew Girvan on target for the Shane’s before Eire Óg got the next two scores with David McCabe replying for the Shane’s with a well taken point. The home side moved four in front when they registered their first goal of the game but four points on the trot saw the Shanes draw level with the McCabe brothers, David and Mark, getting two points each. A pointed free put Eire Óg back in front again but from the resulting kick-out the Shane’s flowed forward and the move ended with Matthew Girvan slotting the ball low to the Eire Óg net to put his side in front for the first time. With the game in first-half injury time David McCabe found the Eire Óg net again, getting on the end of a fisted pass from Mark McCabe. The Shane’s led by five at this stage but Eire Óg narrowed the gap to four with a late pointed first-half free.

It was a disastrous start to the second-half for the Shane’s when in the opening minute a high ball into the square was fumbled to the net and Eire Óg were back to within one. A Paul O’Rourke point edged the Shanes further ahead but Eire Óg hit a purple patch to score the next four points of the game and go into the lead with less than five minutes left on the clock. The Shane’s poured forward in an effort to get back into the game and Mark McCabe’s third point of the contest had them back to within one and with the game entering additional time Matthew Girvan popped the ball over to level things up. Both sides had late chances to claim the spoils but ultimately the game all square, 2 – 9 to 2 – 9.

Senior Ladies

Our senior ladies made the short trip to Carrickcruppen on Saturday evening and put in a mighty effort to claim a two-point win, 6 – 12 to 4 – 16.

The Shane’s ladies were slow out of the blocks in the opening ten minutes and found themselves 2- 3 to 0 – 0 in arrears. However, they settled into the game and scored six of the next seven scores to level the game and the sides went in all-square at half-time at 2 – 6 apiece but in truth the Shane’s should have been ahead on the scoreboard as a perfectly good Aimee Mackin point was signalled wide.

Two early second-half goals, one each from Sorcha McDonnell and Aimee Mackin, and a fine point from Aoibheann Jones to a single pointed free from Carrickcruppen gave the Shane’s a six-point lead. By the midway point of the half the Shanes led by seven points before four points on the trot gave them a seemingly unassailable eleven-point advantage but Cruppen fought back to get within two. The Shane’s girls defended like their lives depended on it in the final few minutes and their sheer hard-work and determination saw them over the line, 6 – 12 to 4 – 16.

Training for the senior and minor ladies continues this Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm before the senior ladies’ travel to Armagh Harps next Monday night at 7:30 pm.

Minor Boys

The minor boys were scheduled to play Grange on Monday night but the game has been postponed until Monday 7th August.

U16 Girls

Our U16 girls recorded a great win over Killeavy on Thursday evening in the league and they were back in championship action on Saturday afternoon away to Armagh Harps. Despite putting in a decent performance, the Shane’s lost out to the home side. The girls have an away game against Clann Eireann on Thursday evening and all girls are asked to meet at the club at 5:30 pm.

U14 Girls

It was disappointment for our U14 girls last Monday, losing out by two points to Armagh Harps in the championship. The Shane’s girls trailed by double figures going into the last ten minutes of the game but they mounted a tremendous comeback but unfortunately time ran out and they fell to a narrow defeat.

U12s

Saturday saw our U12 amalgamation of Patrick Rankins travel to Ballyholland to take part in their annual blitz and after a brilliant day’s football they won the Cup competition. The young footballers played some brilliant football right through the tournament and they saved one of their performances for the final itself where defeated their Warrenpoint opponents by a few scores. On top of winning the cup Caolan O’Hare was deservedly named as the Player of the Tournament. The club would like to thank Ballyholland for their invite and their hospitality on the day.

U12 Girls

Well done to our U12 girls who were at home to a very good Tír na nÓg side on Sunday morning. It was a great display of football from both sets of players and the Shane’s girls battled really hard from start to finish to go on and seal the win. Training continues on Tuesday evening from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm with a game away to the amalgamated side of Silverbridge and Cullyhanna on Thursday evening with a throw-in time of 7:00 pm.

U10s

Training for our U10s this week will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evening this week from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the field. Over the past week the U10s were in action away to Lisbrack on Wednesday evening before hosting Drumgath on Sunday morning. All the boys and girls put in a great effort in both games and really enjoyed themselves. Next up for the U10s is their annual home blitz next Saturday.

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.

Well Done

Not content with having conquered a variety of challenges such as the London Marathon, Dublin Marathon, Great North Half Marathon in Newcastle and Iron Man in Barcelona throughout this past year, Larry Mc Cabe and his side kick Pat McGinn are back in the line out for this years internationally renowned Great North Run.
 
The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world. Taking place in the North East of England in September, the route sees runners starting at Newcastle upon Tyne and finishing in South Shields. 
 
 The "boyz" will once again be hoping to raise much needed monies for the Southern Area Hospice.
 
This weekend local business BoyleSports, represented by Danielle Grimes, along with Chairperson of Newry, Mourne & Down Council Roisin Mulgrew and Grainne Mulgrew from the Southern Area Hospice joined with the two well known "athletes" to launch their fund raising campaign.
 
Larry Mc Cabe explained 
"Myself and Pat decided to mark the entrance into our 60th year’s by doing something different and also at the same time raising money for the Hospice in memory of all those who have availed of the services provided by the Hospice facility in Newry. These services have touched many amongst both our families and friends and we are blessed for the facility and all associated with it. 
 
We would like to thank our friend John Boyle & all at BoyleSports and Newry, Mourne & Down Council Chairperson Roisin for all their support which has helped kick start our fundraising and will give us the motivation to ensure we have a successful fund raising and complete our run".
 
Danielle Grimes, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented “We are once again delighted to be supporting two remarkable men, Larry and Pat, in yet another amazing undertaking. They truly are putting most of us to same, marking their 60th years by taking on the Great North Run. Of course it is all for a wonderful cause, the Southern Area Hospice, who do incredible work, which we are only too pleased to be part of supporting.”
 
Chairperson of NMDC Council Cllr Roisn Mulgrew wishing the two “lads” well said
“Best wishes to Pat & Larry in their Great North Challenge. The lads are great examples of that community and caring spirit that exists throughout our Council area”.
 
Thanking all for their support Grainne Mulgrew from the Southern Area Hospice said,
"We are indebted to Pat, Larry, Grainne and all at Boylesports & Chairperson Roisin for their support. Southern Area Hospice Services (SAHS) provides invaluable support and care to people living within the Southern Health Board Area, who are suffering from Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and AIDS. Our aim is to provide the best quality of life for our patients and their families" 
 
She continued, "Southern Area Hospice Services relies on 73p in every pound coming from fundraising to enable us to care and support patients and their families. The Fundraising Dept has to raise £2.5 million in 2017 to maintain the level of care currently available. This equates to £208,333 per month, £48,077 per week or £6,849 per day.All our services are provided free of charge and we rely heavily on voluntary donations to continue providing our special care. Together we can help others".
 
The Great North Run takes place on the 10th of September and any support for Larry and Pats fundraising and the Hospice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm a member of the Square Wheels cycling club based in the Moy and myself and some of the club members will be cycling around the coastline of Northern Ireland and Donegal to raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer.  
 
In Northern Ireland, approximately 180 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, and 120 women lose their lives each year. When a woman is diagnosed at the earliest stage, her chance of surviving ovarian cancer for five years of more doubles from just 46 per cent to more than 90 per cent, and knowing the symptoms of ovarian cancer can save lives.  
 
The symptoms of ovarian cancer are: 
 
Increased abdominal size/persistent bloating
Difficulty eating/feeling full/vague indigestion
Pelvic or abdominal pain, dragging sensation in lower abdomen or side
Needing to wee more urgently or more often
Other symptoms can include unexpected weight loss, change in bowel habits, and extreme fatigue. 
 
In NI we do not have  a dedicated support network for those effected by the disease. Most women and their family have to deal with the diagnoses in isolation. Most do not know anyone else with the disease and this can make coping with it even more difficult.
 
Since starting my Facebook page @beovariancanceraware  and starting to have conversation with people about the campaign I have heard stories of so many women who have lost their lives to the disease. What has come out of those conversations is the feeling of isolation for the sufferer and their families. Sometimes when we have a disease we just need someone to talk to who is going through the same experience and understand how it feels.  Families are not always able to offer that support and often need support themselves.  
 
Through the Facebook page I am hoping to be able to put people in contact with each other so that we can grow and develop a support network and to raise money for research into the disease.
 
Please know the symptoms. Hopefully you will never need to them for yourself but you could save the life of a daughter, sister, mother, best friend...by recognizing the symptoms and helping her get treatment early. EARLY DIAGNOSIS SAVES LIVES. 
 
Please visit my facebook page @beovariancanceraware and share it with all the women you know.  Don't keep this lifesaving information to yourself ...tell everyone. 
 
www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/mary-mccartan 
Help raise £5000 to help provide a support network for women and families affected by ovarian cancer and to support research into this devastating disease.

Senior Men
Our senior men returned to winning ways last Wednesday with a  nine-point victory over Derrynoose, 4 – 10 to 0 – 13.
 
An early pointed free from Derrynoose was quickly cancelled out by a Mark McCabe point before two points in as many minutes from Connaire Mackin and Ryan McCabe put the home side in front. Derrynoose replied with their second point of the game before a powerful shot from Ryan McCabe was brilliantly saved by the Derrynoose keeper but the ball rebounded to Mark McCabe who slotted over from close range. Two points in quick succession from Derrynoose, one from a free, had them back on level terms before a high ball from Ryan Quinn was fielded by David McCabe who then turned his marker before dispatching his shot low to the back of the Derrynoose net. The Shane’s led by three at this stage but Derrynoose responded in great fashion, getting the next three points to tie proceedings once more. Great defensive work from Paddy Doran resulted in a swift Shane’s attack with the eventually making its way to Paddy Maughan and the big full-forward made no mistake from close range, coolly shooting the ball to the net for his team’s second goal. Maughan had his eye in now and in the Shane’s next attack he rose highest in the small square to fist the ball home and raise the green flag for the second time in as many minutes. The Shane’s were playing some great football and led by six at this stage and this increased to seven soon after when Connaire Mackin, playing his last game before heading to America for the summer, launched a fantastic ball from right out on the side-line which sailed straight between the posts to leave his side 3 – 5 to 0 – 7 to the good at the break.
 
The Shane’s all but sealed their win in the opening minute of the second period when they won the ball at the throw-in and delivered it to Mark McCabe who in turn found is brother and he flicked the ball to the net for his second and his side’s fourth goal of the contest. The sides then swapped a point apiece with Sean McLoughlin on target for the home team before a Derrynoose free reduced the deficit to nine but a point from Paul O’Rourke and a free from David McCabe kept the scoreboard ticking over for the Shane’s and well in control. The Shane’s then took their foot off the pedal slightly and in that period Derrynoose fired over three unanswered points before David McCabe, who was having a great game, took his personal tally for the night to 2 – 2 with a well taken point. The sides swapped points in the closing stages with Paul O’Rourke getting the Shane’s score to leave the final-score 4 – 10 to 0 – 13 in favour of the Camlough men.
 
Senior Ladies
Our senior ladies travelled to Grange on Saturday evening to take on the home side in the Championship and it proved to be a tough assignment with the Shane’s eventually running out winners by seven points, 6 – 12 to 3 – 14.
The Shanes’ struggled to find their rhythm in the opening period and found it difficult to get scores on the board. With half-time fast approaching they trailed their opponents by a point but a late Aimee Mackin saw them go at the break two pints to the good 1 – 6 to 1- 4.
 
The second-half was real end to end football with both sides virtually going score for score but it was the Shane’s girls who made the most of the goal chances with Aoibheann Jones, Sorcha McDonnell and Aimee Mackin all raising the green flag to keep the Shane’s out in front. To their credit it was a very good Grange side that kept themselves right in the game until the final whistle with some great scores but it was the Shane’s who emerged victorious in the end with seven points to spare, 6 – 12 to 3 – 14.
 
The senior ladies will continue to train on Tuesday evening at 7.00pm in preparation for their next league game away to Carrickcruppen next Saturday evening at 7.00pm.
 
Minor Boys
A severely depleted minor boy’s team travelled to Cullyhanna last Monday for their latest league game following the exam break and despite putting in a decent performance they lost out by five points. The lads were scheduled to be in action on Monday night at home to Maghery but the game has been cancelled.
 
U16 Girls
The U16 girls have a home game against Killeavy this coming Thursday evening at 7.00pm.
 
U14 Boys
It was a disappointing result for U14 boys last Tuesday night, losing out to Tír na nÓg at home.
 
U12 Girls
Our U12 girls are at home to Tír na nÓg next Sunday at 12 noon whilst training continues every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 7.00pm – 8.00pm at the field.
 
U10s
Wednesday saw our U10 footballers travel to Saval with two teams to take part in a couple of challenge games. All the boys and girls got a full game of football and produced some great football with some great skill and effort on show.
Two teams also travelled to Clonduff on Saturday to participate in the annual Daniel Andre memorial tournament. One of the teams found themselves in a tough group alongside Clann na Banna, Glen Emmets, Ballyholland and Bredagh but some great performances saw the Shane’s progress to the quarter-final of the shield. They faced a very good Burren side in this game and it proved to be a very tight affair which eventually saw the young Shane’s fall to a single point defeat.
 
The second team were also in a tough group and after games against Saval, Burren, Clann Eireann and Clonduff they found themselves in the quarter-final of the competition. Mayobridge were waiting in the quarter-final and this was another tight and tough game but the young Shane’s dug deep and claimed a narrow one point win. Clann Eireann were the opponents in the semi-final and unfortunately, they proved too strong for the Shane’s youngsters and claimed the win.
 
The U10’s management team were delighted with the effort the Shane’s put in at the tournament and they are extremely happy with the progress being made by all the players. Training continues every Tuesday and Friday evening at the field from 6.00pm – 7.00pm with a game squeezed in between on Wednesday evening away to Lisbrack with a throw-in time of 7.00pm. More games will hopefully be confirmed later in the week.
 
Underage Training
Please note that training for all our U6s, U8s, U10s and U12s will take place every Friday night from 6.00pm - 7.00pm at the field. All boys and girls at these age groups are very welcome to come along. The training on Friday evening is on top of their normal weekly training session.
 
Meabh O’Neill’s Camogie
The camogie club would like to thank everyone who helped out at the very successful underage blitz which took place at the club on Saturday – it was great morning which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
 
Senior and minor camogie training continues every Monday and Wednesday evening from 6.6.20pm – 8.00pm with underage training also taking place on Wednesday evenings from 6.00pm – 7.30pm. 
 
Annual U10 Blitz
