Drumcliffe/Rosses Point GAA Club Notes

There were six DRP players on the Summerhill College gaelic football panel which reached the Connacht Juvenile ‘A’ league final last Thursday after a 4-14 to 1-6 win over the ‘The Bish’ (St Joseph’s) Galway. The club players involved were: Ciarán O’Reilly, Ciarán Smith, Hugh Keaney, Cian Oates, Desmond Gillen & Ben Kelly.
Well done to all the Sligo GAA personnel who were involved with last Saturday’s ‘Gaelic Voices For Change’  Solidarity Sleepout on O’Connell Street in Sligo to raise awareness and funds for homlessness. The event was a big success raising more than €200,000 nationwide.
Our end-of-season adult awards presentation will take place in Davis’s Restaurant, Drumcliffe, on Friday Dec 29th at 9:30pm. Our Annual Juvenile Awards night is scheduled for January 20th. Venue and event details will be confirmed soon.
Two of our club members Gemma and Rían O’Callaghan produced fine performances for North Sligo Athletic Club last Sunday at the All-Ireland uneven age group cross country championships in County Waterford. Gemma finished 4th in the girls U11 race, while Rian finished in a very creditable 33rd place in the boys U13 event.
If you feel the need for exercise over the festive period, there are plenty of local events coming up over the next week/10 days. The annual Rosses Point Christmas Day swim takes place next Monday 12pm, while the GOAL mile takes place in Rosses Point village on St Stephen’s Day at 3pm. North Sligo Athletic Club are also organising the Benbulben 5K race on New Years Eve, starting at Oxfield at 12pm.
