Drumcliffe/Rosses Point GAA Club Notes

Big congratulations to Drumcliffe Handball Club who were named at the weekend as the Connacht Handball Club of the Year for 2017 by the sport’s provincial council. It was a fitting recognition for the work which has gone into providing handball for the community over the last 12 months. Congrats to the Slevins and everybody involved with the club. A reminder that Saturday morning handball coaching continues in Oxfield each week for new and existing players, from ages 6 upwards. See the Drumcliffe Handball Club Facebook page for times and info.

Special mention also to Margaret Regan whose outstanding contribution to her community down through the years was acknowledged at a special event in Davis’s restaurant recently.

Well done to our senior club footballer Séan Power who has been named as one of 32 provincial players to receive a Connacht GAA Bursary for 2018. These awards acknowledge and support a selection of the province’s most promising players from the third level sector. Seán is a student in UCD.

A meeting for all club coaches takes place this Monday night (Jan 15th) in Oxfield at 9pm. If you are interested in getting involved on the coaching front in 2018, please come along.

Our annual Juvenile Awards celebration will now take place on Friday, January 26th in Rathcormac Hall at 7:30pm (changed from Jan 20th). This event will acknowledge the dedication and achievements of our underage hurlers and footballers (and their coaches) from Under 12 to Minor over the past 12 months. This is a free event and all are welcome.

The club’s monthly meeting for January is scheduled for Monday 29th in Oxfield at 9pm.

The club is holding a First Aid Course in Oxfield on the weekend of February 9/10th. Places are limited so interested coaches should contact our coaching officer Declan Carroll on 0879480114 to book a place.
