Senior Men

Our senior men continued their pre-season preparations with an away game against Grange on Sunday afternoon. Once again it proved to be a useful workout for the lads and they played some decent football throughout with all the squad getting some all-important game time. Training continues as normal this week.

U14 Boys

Our U14 boy’s amalgamation of Patrick Rankins started their competitive season on Saturday with a home win over Granemore in the Féile Shield. After a tight opening to the game a couple of slightly fortuitous goals for the home side saw them open up a decent lead. The goals settled the Patrick Rankin’s side down and they continued to dominate the remainder of the opening half. The second-half proved to be a much tighter affair with Granemore having some good spells to keep them right in the game but in the end, it was the home side who maintained their advantage and ran out fully deserved winners. The result sees the lads progress to the quarter-final and a game against Keady. Saturday’s game proved to be a good run-out for the team with everyone seeing some action over the sixty minutes and considering the weather conditions, there was some great football on display, with all players working hard. Training for the lads continues as normal this week.

Armagh GAA Club Draw

The very successful Armagh GAA Club draw is running again in 2019. The draw takes place over 4 months - March, April, May and June - with 16 prizes on offer each month. The first prize each month is a Renault Clio, right down to a 16th prize of £200.
Tickets are priced at £100 each with £80 from every ticket going directly to the club after we reach our minimum target of sales. They can be bought by paying the £100 up front or 4 monthly instalments of £25 per month.
Tickets can be purchased from any of our committee members and the more tickets we sell, the more money the club raises. We are encouraging all our club members, families and friends to purchase a ticket either individually or maybe as a group of 4 friends or family members clubbing together at £25 each.
It is brilliant opportunity to raise much needed funds for the club whilst also being in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.

Anyone with any sold tickets is asked to bring them to the club on Monday night from 8.30pm onwards.

Kit Bags for Sale

The club still have a number of kit bags for sale at a price of £15.00 each (usually £25.00 each). They can be purchased in the club on Monday from 8.30pm on a first come, first served basis.


Last week’s winning lotto numbers were 1, 8, 26 & 28. There were no jackpot winners and 1 x match three winner. The lotto jackpot is slowly, but surely creeping up again and now stands at £3,250.

Whatever your reasons our doors are always open to new members and new ideas whether it be working with our underage teams, helping with fundraising, washing strips, cleaning, upkeep of the grounds, selling lotto, recruitment, club development, lining out the pitch, doing the gate and a host of other tasks. You can be part of Shane O’Neill’s in so many ways, and you can give as much or as little time as suits you – so why not come along a get involved.
