Mental Health & Well-being Talk - Alcohol, Drugs & Addiction Awareness Evening

Shane O'Neills Gaelic Football Club, in partnership with our neighbouring Carrickcruppen GFC & Craobh Rua Camlocha Hurling Club, is hosting a Drink, Drug and Addiction awareness evening in St Pauls High School Green Road Bessbrook on Thursday 27th February @ 7.00pm for members and non-members, both male and female from 15 years old and up. (The talk should take approx. 1.5 hours).

The ‘Friends of Cuan Mhuire’ Addiction Recovery Group are facilitating the event and there will be speakers on the issues of Alcohol, Drugs and Gambling Addictions.

Although this is a GAA led initiative, we are inviting ALL local sport clubs, community groups and interested individuals to attend what we feel is a very important and relevant topic for all.

(Those attending might consider making a voluntary contribution at the door, any monies raised will go to Cuan Mhuire (Sr Consilios) Addiction Support Centre Newry)

Armagh GAA Club Draw

The very successful Armagh GAA Club draw is running again in 2020. 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 £10k, 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 a brilliant opportunity to raise much needed funds for the club whilst also being in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.

The deadline for the return of the GAA Club Draw tickets is fast approaching. Anyone who has sold tickets but has yet to return them can do so on Monday night at the club from 7.30pm. For those people with tickets still to sell, they must be returned to the club no later than Monday 9th March.

Yoga at the Shane’s

Have you ever thought about trying yoga....well now you can every Tuesday evening in Shane O’Neill’s club @ 7.00pm.

Also coming up at the club is Kids Yoga, starting on Wednesday 25th February at 4.15pm for ages 3 - 6 and 5.30pm for ages 7 - 11. All boys and girls these age groups are very welcome to attend.

Time for Me

The Rural Health Partnership is holding a 4 week Time for Me programme in the club, continuing this coming Thursday, 30th January @ 7.00pm. The programme is aimed at learning skills to relax and unwind and costs just £10 for 4 weeks which is payable on the first night. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Club Volunteers 

The club is always seeking new volunteers to come along and lend a hand, whether it be coaching/managing/mentoring our underage teams, washing strips, marking the field, selling lotto, helping to fundraise, doing the bar, cutting the grass.

Last week’s winning lotto numbers were 2, 7, 11 & 21. There were no jackpot winners  and 11 x match three winners. The jackpot now stands at a very impressive £5,500.
