Update 24/9/17

There are many among us who still cherish the memories of Orchard Park, Elphin on 31st October 1993 when St. Michael's beat Creggs by a goal to gain promotion to Intermediate championship football. Many have since passed through the ranks at player and manager level representing the club with great pride and dignity at Intermediate level. Our intermediate team played with the same pride and dignity against Kilbride last Saturday but victory was not to be for St. Michael's who now face championship football at junior level in 2018. Thanks to each and everyone of the panel and to Stephen Sheeran and his management team for their dedication and commitment throughout the year.
St Michael's ladies had a brilliant experience on tour in Croke Park at the ladies all Ireland finals which enjoyed a record attendance of over 46,000. Tickets are on sale for the 50/50 draw contact, Jenny, Helen, Clare, Joan or Aileen.
Our under 14 girls play St Mary's at home on Sunday the 1st October at 5pm in the  championship quarter final. Our minor girls play St. Ciaran's on 8th October in round 3 of their championship. Well done to Amy Gallagher, Niamh Reynolds and Amy Tiernan who represented Roscommon when they played Galway last Friday evening in the under 13 development.
Our Under 8's and Under 10's played our neighbours Boyle in friendly games last weekend at the Abbey Park. Thanks to all players, trainers and parents involved and to Boyle club for their welcome.

Club lotto results from the Tara Marina draw on 17th September was no jackpot winner. Tom Cooney and Brendan O'Connor share €100 for both matching three numbers. The next draw will be in Clancy's, Knockvicar on 1st October for a jackpot of €1,900. Jenny Bruen's team in charge.

There will be a club meeting this Tuesday night at 9.00pm. All club members are welcome to attend.

Leah Moran and Faye Shivnan had an enjoyable day out when they were part of the Boyle Camoige team who played Clontarf in a challenge before the All-Ireland camogie final. The Clontarf connection was Paul Mc Dermott originally from Oakport.

Well done to Turlough Bruen who recently had the honour of refereeing the county senior ladies final in Knockcroghery.
