Last week represented one of the saddest day in our Club’s 31 years history when we lost our friend and clubman Frankie ‘Pat’ Gallagher. It also involved the passing of someone who has been involved since the first days of the Club. The club will be much weaker without his company but far stronger because of his memories. Naomh Mhuire GAA club has lost one unique person but we should remember that he brought us all much more than any words can describe. Naomh Mhuire GAA Club will be stronger as a result of the difficult past few days for his family and friends, and Frankie Pat Gallagher would have wanted it exactly like that. Frankie Pat (1963-2011) Rest in peace our friend.

The Club are organising a Scrap Saturday this Saturday Nov 5th. This is where we ask all from the area to bring along any old scrap metal to the GAA Club and we will separate it before off-loading it to a recognised recycling company. The Club benefits from this and uses the money raised for forthcoming developments such as the building of additional dressing rooms, improved coaching etc. The public who take the scrap down can get rid of metal which is gathering and by doing so are helping the Club and its youth. Items accepted can range from saucepans, kettles, irons, cutlery, empty food/drink cans, radiators, solid fuel cookers, food mixers, fire places, mobile phones, old boilers and ranges, waste electrical equipment, copper, aluminium, lead, stainless steel, brass, cast iron, electrical motors, bicycles, go karts, lawnmowers, old scaffolding, water pumps, steel beams, stainless steel, Old cars, car and tractor batteries, lorries, diggers, dozers, axels, cables, starter motors, alternators, engines, etc
