Ballyhegan Davitts GAC Club Notes

(Week Commencing 29/08/11)

Club Lotto:

The second instalment of 2011 Ballyhegan Davitt’s Lotto is now upon us. The committee would like to urge our club members to continue to support our club lotto. It is the lifeblood of our club—providing the much needed finance to fund our teams both male & female at all ages & of course the club-house which is used for other community events. The club is always looking for new Lotto contributors, whilst maintaining our current core membership. If there is anyone available to help sell lotto, please respond this email, or indeed to any committee member. Thank you!


Armagh Senior Football Team Management:

Coiste Chontae Ard Mhacha wishes to announce a change in county football management for the 2012 season.  Donal Murtagh has informed us that he wishes to step down and we have accepted this news with deep regret.  We wish to convey our sincere thanks and appreciation to him for his efforts towards the cause of CLG Ard Mhacha.  His expertise and football knowledge will be greatly missed.


In his place, manager Paddy O’Rourke, along with the County Executive has appointed Paul Grimley to join the management team for 2012. We look forward to the 2012 season and hope our players and management’s efforts combine to make it a successful one for Armagh football.


Hurling Final Tickets:

Jarlath McQuaid has been drawn out of the hat for two Hurling Final Tickets! (Should be a cracker!)


Lost Property:

A pair of football boots & a pair of gloves were left behind from U10 training a few week’s back. Please contact Paul Doherty to reclaim them.


Clothing Bank:

A clothing bank now resides in the club car park. This is a new initiative to raise cash for our club, so we’d like to urge our members & local community to deposit any unwanted clothes and textiles. The items will then be exported across Europe and Africa. By doing so the club will get a donation for every bag of clothes recycled. Thank-you in advance for your help and support.



o All types of Clothing (Adult, Children & Baby)
