CLG AN TEARMAINN : CLUB NOTES FOR WEEK ENDING 20 SEPTEMBER 2015
Congratulations to our Senior Ladies who won their fourth consecutive county championship title on Sunday. With a goal in scored in the first 6 seconds our girls stayed comfortably ahead and dominated the entire game. Their determination, experience and skill showed from the throw in and right up until the final whistle. This display showed why they are All Ireland Champions. Congratulations to the girls and management on such an outstanding performance and best of luck in your Ulster campaign. We are delighted that the first round of the Ulster competition will be at the Burn Road on Sunday 4th October, so put the date in your diaries!
The Juniors have no training on Wednesday as there’s a game at the pitch. Harry will be in contact regarding training.
U13 notes: both teams were out on Saturday morning last. The B team played at home to Gaoth Dobhair. Despite putting in a brave effort the older Gweedore girls were just that bit to much bigger and stronger than our younger squad and they left with the win. Among those who played well were Orla Gallagher, Chelsea Gorman and Michaela Gallagher. The A team were away to Glenswilly where they dominated the game to earn another win. Among those who played well were Aoife Kelly, Ciara Mc Elwaine and Sarah Kho. Details re upcoming games tbc.
Anyone wishing to put in an order for the new Termon t-shirt please text your name and size to Lisa on 0851650782, order to be in by Friday 17th. Cost is €17 and must be paid up front.
The great contingent of Termon supporters who travelled to Mac Cumhaill Park on Saturday evening left with heads held high, proud of the fine performance our entire team of Senior footballers put in over the 60 minutes. They battled to the end, and only 3 points separated us from one of the favourites to lift the Dr Maguire Cup next month. It was great to see Caolán McDaid back on the field, and we are now awaiting notification of our next league fixture.
The GAA was established in 1884 to promote Irish games, language and culture. Every year Scór celebrates the cultural side of the GAA, with individual singing, ballad group, recitation, novelty act, instrumental music and a quiz section. Many of you will remember our very successful novelty acts “The Time Warp” and “X Factor An Tearmainn” and the great fun we had preparing those productions! Scór na nÓg Semi-Final for our part of the county will be on Saturday 7th November at 7pm in Gort a’Choirce and we would like to see the Club represented in some of the above categories. So, if you are under 17, can sing, play an instrument or recite a poem or story, would you consider representing your club on November 7th? Give it some thought, and there will be more info next week!

Coaches of all teams using the Burn Road are reminded that the portable goals are only to be used if they are held in with the spikes which are provided. No coaching or games should take place using these goals without the spikes. Thanks to Jim Mc Sharry who recently modified and repaired the 3 sets of portable goal posts to make them safer. Thank you Jim.
