Through the initiative, SuperValu customers will receive ‘#BehindTheBall’ tokens, which they can then use to allocate to a local GAA club of their choice at the in-store collection points.

Our Saturday morning coaching continues this Saturday from 10am-11am in Connolly Park. For ages 4-10 years. A fun introduction to football. To participate kids must be registered. See the club Facebook page for further details. Please share and spread the word!

Team News

The men’s Division 3 team made it three wins in a row in the league after beating St. Marys on a scoreline of 1-16 to 1-8 last Saturday evening in Kent Park. Next up for the senior men is a home tie against Ballymote in Connolly Park this Sunday at 1pm. The winner earns a place in the Abbott Cup Final.

The men’s Division 4 team were well beaten on Friday last against a well drilled Drumcliffe/Rosses-point.

Heartbreak last weekend for the U12 girls in the “A” plate final against St Farnans. Definitely the best performance of the season even though they couldn't get the win it deserved. The final score of 13-5 doesn't tell the whole story of what an extremely competitive match it was. Hold your heads high girls, the championship awaits!

Well done to the U12& U11 boys who played out two entertaining games against St. Johns in Connolly Park on Tuesday last.

The Lotto draw took place in Connolly's Bar on Monday 28th May. The numbers drawn were 11, 13, 22 &25.

There was no winner of the €9,200 Jackpot. Congrats to our ‘Match 3' Winners Peter Kerins & Shane Lavin who each win €50.

As there was no Jackpot Winner this week, the Jackpot rolls over to €9,300. The next draw will take place on Monday 11th June in Cullen's Bar.

Thanks to everyone who bought tickets throughout the year and continues to support the club.

Finally…Owenmore Gaels GAA Club would like to wish all our members currently doing their Junior and Leaving Certificate exams the best of luck. Once completed we look forward to seeing you all back out playing
