St Johns who beat Tir Na nOg (Portadown) in the JG Donnan Social Football Tournament

Congratulations to St Johns who beat Tir Na nOg (Portadown) in the JG Donnan Social Football Tournament. Two An Riocht teams contested the Shield Final; the winners were Anthony Rogers, Michael Quinn, John Donnelly, Paul Quinn, Raymond Sloan, Colin Quinn, Thomas Sloan, Conor Fitzpatrick, Stephen Flanagan; the runners-up were Eamon O’Rourke, Paddy Carvill, Patrick Mooney, Paul Murney, Wayne Morris, Gary Cunningham, Jim Sloan, Christopher Burden, Johnny McBurney. Thanks to Liam, Brian and Raymond for refereeing and Pat for the catering.

An Riocht sixth annual Social Sevens

An Riocht sixth annual Social Sevens will be held this year on Saturday 1st  August from 1pm to 5pm. Social Sevens is for adults who do not play competitively and has replaced Masters in prolonging involvement in the national games with the one obvious difference that there is no lower age limit.


More than likely these players will be over 35 years but basically anyone who wants to play for a bit of fun or to keep fit can participate; the feedback from players is that they like the opportunity to meet up with former teammates and opponents.


Social Sevens is also a great opportunity to keep in touch with Gaelic Games at a friendly, social level and is an effective way for past players to become reacquainted with their Clubs and as a result perhaps get involved in coaching underage teams.


Entry fee £50 per team (£5 per player). Running alongside the JG Donnan Social Football Tournament will be the Carmel Doran Social Camogie Tournament which is run on the same principle as the Football.
