The Down Clubs draw tickets are still available to purchase. We are pleased to report that we have sold 38 tickets to date and are on course to reach our new sales target of 50 tickets. If we achieve this, the club will have raised £2,880 which will be a tremendous effort. Please help support you club and your county teams at the same time.

Well done to our club’s u16 player Morgan Croskery who is now training with the Down U16 Emerging Talent Football squad. Morgan was a member of last season u15 ETF squad and has also featured in the St Malachy’s High School MacLarnon Cup games.

Speaking of St Malachy’s High School, three of our underage members featured in the School’s “School of Rock” stage production which ran for four nights last week and was a tremendous success. Genevieve Lenaghan (Summer) and Reece Tweedie (Mason) were two of the principal characters while Genevieve’s elder sister Claire featured as one of several who played the part of a student/rock fan. Well done all involved.

Well done to our county footballers and hurlers who recorded away wins against Louth and Derry respectively. A great start to their Allianz Leagues campaigns. This weekend the footballers are at home to Cork while the hurlers are at home to Wicklow. Good luck in both codes.
