The Camogie coaching programme for those working with girls aged four to twelve years did not happen as the coach dropped out forty-five minutes before the session was due to start, apologies to those who had attended. However, there is always a silver lining and this week the programme gets a delayed start with Gerard Gribben taking charge, Gerard has run similar workshops at Dunavil and throughout Ulster and is always well received by participants.


No one was available to attend the Down GAA workshop ‘preparing for your AGM’ or the Ulster GAA Volunteer Conference

In the U13 Football An Riocht lost in Warrenpoint 6-18 to 3-4 and in Mayobridge 8-11 to 10-4.

The league wraps up on Thursday with a match v Rostrevor under the lights at Dunavil, best wishes for a full recovery to Reece Flanagan who was injured.


In the Basketball NI Premier League the Knights had no home game for the second week in a row, let’s hope this Saturday’s match with Armagh Bison goes ahead.

With increased numbers of children attending we need more people to come forward and help – parents, family members, adult players etc. – with both Camogie & Football, don’t miss these two opportunities.
