Friends of St Oliver Plunkett’s P.S.

The Friends of SOPPS would like to thank the generous support from all the membership of Ballyhegan Davitts GAC, for helping to raise a total of £3291.13, this year for our school. Events supported included the Disco in The Famous Grouse, Church cake sales, the Belfast Marathon sponsorship, plus a donation from the Ballyhegan Youth Club. The partnership between the school and the club has long been a success, & we all hope this continues!




If there is anyone interested in representing the club refereeing GO games (U12s), please get in touch. Training is provided! This opportunity is open to everyone, young (good for your CV) and old, male & female!


Also best of luck to our club referee Kieran McKeever, who takes charge of the Senior Ladies Ulster Championship, Donegal v Tyrone fixture this Sunday in Clones.



Get Well Soon!

On behalf of the club, we wish our esteemed member & current County Board delegate Roy Tiffney, a speedy recovery from a recent operation! We hope to have him back supporting our teams very soon!



Mizen Head to Malin Head!

Club members (and players of sorts!) past & present - Shane & Dermot O'Hanlon, Adrian Woolsey, Paul & John McGrane (The Street) and Johnnie Quinn  are undertaking a cycle from Mizen Head to Malin Head this summer in aid of good causes.  Over 4 Days in August 12 novice cyclists will complete the 400 mile journey the length of Ireland in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care, Tiny Life and The Michela Foundation.  A big effort has been made by all the inexperienced cyclists to prepare themselves for this huge challenge and your support would be very much appreciated. 

Should anyone wish to donate to these great causes please log on to  or text the code MTMC 88 and the amount you wish to donate to 70070. 


The group raised over £700 from the table quiz last Friday night in the Goodyear Sports and Social Club Craigavon!
