Down County Board Updates 

The AGM will take place on Monday 23 October 2017, at 8 pm in the Thierafurth Inn, Kilcoo. As you are all aware we are moving into a big year ahead, with our 25 years anniversary and the Feile taking place in Down. It is important that we have all our positions filled and we look forward to new members coming on board to our committee.
Remember you are the county board, and you elect your officers, but we will be asking for more help. Please do not put a nominee on without asking the person first. 

U18/Minors - BORN 2000/2001 ONLY
Trials are starting in November 2017; can all clubs please spread the word and encourage all players to participate. Further details will be published closer to the time.

Down U13 Academy - BORN 2004 ONLY
The U13 Ulster Blitz took place in Mid Ulster Sports Arena on Saturday 14th October and Down entered 6 teams which consisted of 110 girls playing a total of 7 hours of football against multiple teams from Antrim, Donegal, Derry and Monaghan. This has been the culmination of 6 weeks of preparation at the Down U12 and U13 Academies, and the girls should be very proud of their performances as they more than matched the ability displayed by the other counties, with some fine performances and victories along the way.
Thanks to all the girls for the great determination, attitude, work rate and skill on display throughout. Thanks to the support from those parents that travelled and to the Ulster Council for the fantastic organisation of the blitz which ran smoothly. Best of luck to all those girls participating in U14 club championship finals next weekend from all the mentors.
Trials for the U13 girls gets underway next Sunday afternoon, 22nd October 2017 at RGU Downpatrick, with details to follow. Please see Facebook for photos!

Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams has expressed his “shock and deep sadness at the news of a death in Ravensdale as a result of Storm Ophelia”.
Teachta Adams said:
“I want to extend by condolences to the families of those citizens who have lost their lives as a result of Storm Ophelia, and especially to the family of the person killed by a falling tree in Ravensdale this afternoon.
“Storm Ophelia has already caused significant damage as it makes its way across the island of Ireland.
“I would urge everyone to heed the advice of the emergency services and stay indoors.
“And I want to commend the courage of the first responders who are risking life and limb helping those in trouble.” 
Echoing these sentiments of her Party President Chairperson of Newry, Mourne & Down Council Cllr Roisin Mulgrew stated,

"We in this Council area are deeply saddened to learn of the death of a man in an incident in Ravensdale. There have been numerous reports of fallen trees, power cuts and storm damage throughout our Council area. I want to also commend the efforts of all those who have been at the front line of the task of dealing with the impact of Storm Ophelia and I ask members of the public not to endanger themselves or any of our Emergency personnel by taking any unnecessary risk".
