Collegeland GAC Notes – 23 July 2012

Collegeland play their opening game in the Junior Football Championship on Saturday 28th of July against St Michael’s Killean. This fixture has been moved to  Lissummon and throw in is at 7.00pm.  We would ask our members and former players to come out and support the team. See you there.

The second half of the Intermediate League is now getting underway.  We are in the  Shield section and we need a few good performances to retain  our Intermediate or Division 2 status.

After a long break the remaining fixtures in the Reserve League will be out soon.

Clones Footballer
Sunday was a special day for a young Collegeland footballer,  Shane Donnelly,  a pupil at St Peters Primary school Collegeland.  Shane played in the mini football match at Clones during the half-time break at the ULSTER FINAL, and by all accounts had a good game. Shane was presented with a medal and an Ulster GAA jersey.  Shane is a son of proud parents Collegeland O’Rahillys Chairman Frank and Marie Donnelly.  Shanes brothers Connor and Ryan were very proud of his achievement.


Team Physio Recovering.

Best wishes to Peter Donnelly, ambulance driver/paramedic and our team Physio who has been  sampling hospital life recently.  Glad to hear he is making good progress, as we need him in the dug-out.



The u-12 Camogie team travelled to Derrymacash to play St Endas on Monday night for a League match. This was the first Collegeland camogie underage league  match for many years and the young Camogs put up a great performance.  Stephen Clancy was referee.  Training for the camogie teams takes place every Wednesdays at 5-45pm with qualified coaches in attendance.  New members always  welcome to join the club.



Collegeland O’Rahilly GAC  would like to express their sympathy to the Herron/O’Brien family circle on the death of  Paddy O’Brien.  May he rest in peace.
