Harps Notes 2nd August 2015

The Lotto was held on Monday night, so details will be in next week’s notes and our online output. The draw on July 27th saw numbers 3, 23, 26 & 27. £20 each went to Ian Brock, Garrison, Mark Cassidy, Belleek and Margaret Meehan, Belleek. The draw this week will be in Old Pals. 

The club’s August meeting will be held on Thursday night at 9pm in the clubrooms. Anyone with Daisy tickets to return can bring them to the meeting. 

The build up to the Daisy Drop continues, with interest growing in our £1500 pedigree ultimate breed super heifer. Tickets are available from all players and committee members at £10 or three tickets for £20. The fundraiser will conclude on August 15th, when Daisy is released onto Canon Maguire Park to deposit on the lucky square, so to speak. The co-ordinating team will be in contact with all sellers during this week to get their returns, so please have these ready. The final date for all tickets to be returned is Friday night August 7th at 9pm in the clubrooms, to allow our organising team to put together their matrix and assign owners to the squares.

Sunday Morning Footy returns this week at 11.15 as usual. Our Under 12s had two games last week, against Kinawley and Derrylin, emerging with positive results from both ties. They have a bye this week. Our Under 16s had a good away win against St Gerards, with the one downer being an unfortunate shoulder injury to our defender Conor Maguire. We wish Conor well for his recovery. Our Under 16s are at home to Kinawley on Wednesday evening, all players to be in the changing rooms for 6.50. 

The Harps were well represented at Croke Park on Sunday, with our five senior panellists Tiarnan, Eamon, Michael Ryan and Conall against Dublin, plus three players during the half time exhibition match, namely Rory Joe Duffy, Ronan McGovern and Patrick Duffy. The youngsters did great and the seniors put in a fine shift as well. There is something very admirable about the way Fermanagh senior team and those around it go about their business.

After emerging from the initial stage, they reached the Ulster semi, following a very exciting quarter final win over Loughinisland. They lost out after extra time to Moortown, of Tyrone in the semi. The Under 14 season is a very good one for young players, with plenty of games and opportunities. Thank you to Dominic and Martin for their good will and commitment of time plus no little effort to the squad over many sessions since things started in January.

The Lotto draw was held on Monday night June 22nd. Results are displayed in our lotto outlets and online output. This Sunday nights draw will be in Doogie's Bar, with Aidy and John overseeing events.
A hectic week for our club's underage section last week, with Thursday to Saturday in particular really non-stop. Commiserations to both our Under 14s and Minors who lost out in the MFL1 and U14 championship finals against Enniskillen Gaels. Whilst the Under 14s weren't able to put together as good a performance as they had done the week before, they can look back on a long season, with a lot of good performances and development. Good luck to them in the Ulster Feile in Derry this weekend. Our Minors were involved in a titanic struggle with the Gaels, and the match was decided by the one ten minute spell in which either side managed to break free and get a run at their opponents. It was a very good game in terms of intensity and competitiveness. Our Under 10s came up against an exceptional Kinawley group in the final of the tournament on Saturday. The skills and sharpness of the Brian Borus was as good as has been seen for years in the final game. Still, our players should be proud to have topped their group and they are on the right road. Three finals, three defeats but no need to be downhearted. Players are developing, and getting plenty of football.  
The conclusion of the Under 10 tournament in particular was a massive operation, with a lot of people to be thanked for their work in preparing the pitches, refereeing the games, looking after catering, coordinating Go Games, clearing up afterwards and much more. Special mention though, to Garry Smyth, who coordinated the fixtures and results across two groups since early May when the competition began.  

This year's Cul Camps for children from P2 - U12 will be held from August 3rd - 7th at Canon Maguire Park. Application forms will be available from the club, Primary Schools and at the County GAA Offices at Brewster Park. Applicants can also apply online at www.kelloggsculcamps.gaa.ie. There will be a Development Camp for U12, 13 and U14 players from July 15th - 17th at Lissan. Cost is £30 which will include a Fermanagh style training top and covers transport and coaching as well. Application forms will be available very soon from the usual sources for this camp.

Our next major club fundraiser is now taking shape, as interest grows in our Daisy Dollop. Our £1500 pedigree heifer living the good life currently, preparing for our big day on August 15th. Tickets are £10 or 3 for £20 and we are hoping that our promoters and supporters will give this a good go.  

Finally, please keep an eye on the club's online output for details of any adult fixtures this weekend. We will display them as soon as they are announced.

The Harps Lotto, now £7700, was not won on Sunday night. The numbers were 5, 6, 14 & 18. £20 each went to Paddy Gilheaney, Belnaleck, Darren McGrath, Enniskillen and The Gallagher Family, Boho. The draw this Sunday night will be in Doogie's, with Gerard and Donal overseeing matters.
To say that this is a busy week for the club at underage level would probably be an understatement! Our Under 14s play Enniskillen Gaels in the championship final on Thursday evening at 7.45 in Brewster Park, they had a dramatic extra time victory over Kinawley in the semi final last weekend. This was a highly entertaining match, with the players from both teams putting in a great effort. Special mention to our Full Back Ronan McHugh, who had already completed the Enniskillen 10k that afternoon. Ronan's legs must have been sore on Sunday morning!

On Friday evening, we are back to Brewster Park again for the MFL1 final against Enniskillen Gaels at 8pm.

 On Saturday morning, we keep the thing going with the final day of our U10 tournament. Our Under 10s face Kinawley in the final of this one, having squeezed though in a cracking playoff against Enniskillen Gaels on Friday night last, 13 - 12 the final scoreline. The final is scheduled for 1.15, but there is a full morning of blitz football on both our pitches for all the remaining A & B teams in the tournament. Action starts at 10.15 and all visiting teams are asked to be punctual. Good luck to our three teams and their mentors in their finals this week. We hope that the teams put in a big effort and play as well as they can. 

Sunday morning footy will take place at the usual time of 11.15, and our minors are out again on Tuesday evening June 23rd in the championship against Ederney in Irvinestown.

This year's Cul Camps for children from P2 - U12 will be held from August 3rd - 7th at Canon Maguire Park.

Commiserations to our senior ladies, who lost out to St Pats in the championship on a scoreline of 6.14 to 2.15. This was a good game, and our level of performance was very good indeed. We hope we can continue to progress in the months ahead.

Our next Health and Wellbeing initiative is taking shape at present as well.  A health and fitness programme, based around the Derrygonnelly 10k/7k in September, in which we help each other to prepare, looking at food intake, gentle training and enjoyment.

The club committee meeting for June takes place this Thursday night at 9pm sharp.
The club Lotto draw was held on Monday night. Results are online and the draw on Sunday night will be in The Linnett Inn.   

The club’s Under 14s had a busy week last week. On Tuesday, they left nothing in the tank in a very creditable effort against Enniskillen Gaels in the league final. They had plenty of possession and were competitive, but found scores just that wee bit harder to come by. They had a very good performance on Saturday against Lisnaskea in the championship quarter final. They now play a dangerous Kinawley outfit in the semi, with the fixture details to be confirmed. Our Minors are currently preparing for their county final against Enniskillen Gaels, scheduled for Friday night June 19th.

Our juniors have two fixtures scheduled for this weekend, at home to Teemore on Friday, then away to Roslea on Sunday. Our senior ladies' championship match against St Pats is scheduled for this Wednesday evening at a venue to be confirmed.

Finally, it was with sadness that our club’s membership heard of the passing of Denis Kelly, Springfield, father of our esteemed committee member Hugh Kelly. Condolences to the Kelly family on their loss.
