Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 21st January 2018

 

Joe McManus RIP
The club was greatly saddened this week at the passing of one of our greatest stalwarts, Joe McManus. Since arriving in Enniscrone in the 1960s as Garda Sergeant, Joe was a truly dedicated clubman and contributed enormously to the GAA in our parish and at county level also as a member of the Sligo County Board for many years. The esteem in which Joe was held was illustrated in the size of our club guard of honour on Wednesday evening, and again on Thursday morning. Club colours draped the coffin as Joe was brought to his final resting place in St Patrick’s Cemetery. The club extends its deepest sympathy to the McManus family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
FBD League
Unfortunately the FBD League meeting of Sligo and Mayo had to be moved from Quigabar to Ballina last Sunday morning after torrential overnight rain made our pitch unplayable. While disappointing, it was the correct decision in light of the dangerous underfoot conditions. Nonetheless thanks to all who had helped us prepare for the game since we were notified last Friday afternoon of the fixture.
Dinner Dance
Tickets for our dinner dance in the Diamond Coast Hotel on February 10th will go on sale shortly. It promises to be an excellent evening with Hurler of the Year Joe Canning and Tyrone football legend Peter Canavan set to attend as special guests.

AGM
Our AGM takes place on Friday, February 2nd at 8pm in the clubhouse.
