We held our senior awards night in McDermott's, Castlebaldwin last Saturday where Noel Gallagher, Vice Chairperson of the County Board presented our Men's senior team with the 2023 Division 1 winners medals. Ciaran Kenny was presented with the Boyd memorial cup for Senior player of the year by Brian Boyd on behalf of the Boyd family. Bridie Connolly presented Aarron McKenna with the Intermediate Player of the year on behalf of the Connolly family while John Joe Connolly presented  Niall Henry with the Junior Player of the Year award on behalf of the Connolly family. The Devina Duncan memorial Cup for Ladies player was awarded to Louise Merrick with the award presented by Simone Moss to Sharon Merrick on behalf of Louise. Congratulations to all the winners.
We also formally inducted former Chairperson, Seamus Cawley into our Hall of Fame. Current Chairperson, Andy Kearns read the citation on the night and the full text can be seen in this weeks Sligo Champion and Weekender and will be posted on line shortly.
Well done to Gaels players who starred with various teams during the week. First up was Coola U17 Team winning the B all Ireland Soccer final with a strong representation of Gaels players, Jade Lyons won the Ladies HEC O'Connor Cup with DCU, Ruby Clark won the Moynihan Cup with ATU Sligo, while Sophia Rose Henry starred at full back in Sligo LGFA U16 team's win over Galway on Saturday - well done to all. 
Reminder to all parents, coaches and players that it is essential to register now on foireann before the start of the new season. All players aged U6 up to adult need to register to ensure they are insured - players/coaches can not take the field unless they are registered. Fees remain unchanged from last year. Girls playing U10 and above (born 2015 or earlier) need to register as LGFA and players and girls born 2016 and after need to register as GAA. All boys should register as GAA. If you have issues with registration on the app please contact Michelle McMorrow or Mary Quinn.
The winner of last weeks 50/50 draw was Andy Hannon who won €680.
The club wish to express sympathy with Sligo GAA Chairperson, Sean Carroll on the passing of his mother, Maureen at the weekend. Ar Dheis De go raibh a anam dílis.
