Nursery & Primary Football Training

Please note that there will be no training for our Nursery and Primary 1 footballers for the next two weeks due to St Mark’s being closed – training will resume as usual on Sunday 25th July.

U13 Boys' Football:

On Tuesday evening (29/06/21) our U13 boys made the trip to Banbridge to play local side, Clann na Banna. The game started as expected with both teams pushing hard to get on top. Fortunately, the boys in blue managed to get in front and were in the lead at half time.

Being motivated to make up for the only defeat of the season so far previously against Clann na Banna, the boys in blue played some fantastic football to leave Banbridge with the two points secured.

All 18 players who took to the field made a massive contribution to the performance and the victory!

Hurling News

U13s win away from home

Ballela 4-7 V Patrick Rankins 5-6

Having been well beaten several weeks ago by Ballela, Patrick Rankins knew they were going to get a tough return fixture on their victor’s home turf on Friday night.

Ballela were a strong team and it would be a big ask to get a result, but Rankins took to the field in a very determined manner.

Jamie Lock opened the scoring with a point, But Ballela were quick to reply with the opening goal. A Ciaran McMahon goal, a Danny McManus point and a brace from Lock left the visitors trailing by just two points.

The second half saw Rankins lift their game and aided by some brilliant pieces of interplay they started to turn the game in their favour. Further scores from McMahon, Eoin Gorman & McManus left them two-point winners at the final whistle.

Team: Lorcan Rowntree, Niall McManus, Jason Duffy, Tiernan Fitzpatrick, Eoin Campbell, Conor Treanor, Danny Doyle, Eoin Gorman (1-0), Senan Rogan, Malachi Sherwin, Danny McManus (2-2), Jamie Lock (0-3), Ciaran McMahon (2-0)

Ladies Football News

Senior Ladies Continue To Impress

Warrenpoint 6:14 V St. Michael’s, Magheralin 2:5

Another brilliant performance from Warrenpoint’s senior ladies last night when they played St. Michael’s, Magheralin, in Mogannon. After their defeat last week, the ladies were determined to comeback winning again and with a great amount of support play and high work rate the ladies came off the field at half time with a comfortable lead of 3:14 - 0:3. With a great team talk from management and players the ladies knew what they had to do to stay on top and keep pushing, always knowing that the match was not over. St. Michael’s proved that by coming back into the game with two goals in the second half. Our ladies worked hard and came off the field at the end as the winners. Well done to all players, substitutes and management.

10 Year Anniversary 

This year marks the tenth anniversary of ladies’ Gaelic football in Cumann Pheadair Naofa, Warrenpoint. To help mark this milestone, the primary 7 pupils at St.Dallan’s school in Warrenpoint were tasked with designing a poster, on this theme. A large number of high-quality entries were sent into the judging panel, who after much deliberation, decided upon a winning entry & two runners up. The winning entry was produced by Kate McCaffery, with Grace Lunny & Molly O’Neill taking the runner’s up spots. Kate received a framed copy of her poster to take home, with another framed copy going up in the Cumman Pheadair Naofa club rooms. All three prize winners also received gift vouchers for the club’s shop.

Club chairman Larry Byrne & senior ladies’ vice-captains, Lucia Morgan & Caoimhe Shannon, presented the prizes.

 Camogie News

Our camogie section travelled to Clonduff on Saturday 3rd July, for their 1st tournament since 2019. Since we returned to training our numbers have increased and so we were able to field 2 U11, 2 U9 and 1 U7 team.   Once again our girls displayed great skill and determination against tough opposition with our U9 team reaching the final of their group.

Thank you to all who came out and supported the girls and to Clonduff GAA for hosting the event. 

The Camogie and Hurling camp runs from Monday-Friday in St Mark's. We hope everyone enjoys the week. 

There will be no camogie training on Friday 9th or Friday 16th July. We look forward to seeing all our camógs back after the break.
