Our Club would like to thank everyone who continues to play this vital fundraiser each week but we need more entries.

This is our only means of income while we still pay our usual fees involved in running a Club.

It’s simple to play Lucky 4, you can enter via our Klubfunder account where you can enter your number for up to 10 weeks, alternatively we can organise a door steep sell to call your way, if you’d like to enter our draw this way then please call 07715708822.

Senior Championship ended on Friday night past in Garvaghey when our men came up short against Drumragh on a scoreline of 2:12 to 0:14.
The Minor boys qualified for the final of the championship following a spirited 5-21 to 5-07 victory over Beragh in Loughmacrory on Tuesday evening. The lads got off to a shaky start with Beragh scoring 2 early goals to take a 7 point lead 2-02 to 0-01. The boys kept their composure and assisted by immense efforts from Eoin McGlinchey and Liam Traynor they clawed their way back into the game to lead at the half by a point on a scoreline of 2-09 to 3-05.
Paul O’Neill was asserting his dominance in the 2nd half from midfield with some spectacular catches. This provided the platform for Daniel Rafferty and Eoin Millar to finish off some fantastic scores.
Cahil Rafferty and Eoin Neill continued to drive at Beragh at every opportunity helping to extend the lead to 14 points at the finish.
It took a real team effort from all involved on the night to secure a final place at the expense of a very determined Beragh team.
U16 lads are in Championship action this Friday evening, away to Moortown at 6pm.
First outing of the year for our U12 girls on Saturday past away to Aghaloo. After a slow start for the girls in their first game, our young Hoopettes really kicked into gear, taking control of the game and playing some excellent football. The defence being the strongpoint on the day never stopped working with the forwards really coming alive to get some lovely scores! Well done girls on your first game, onwards and upwards for this talented bunch of players.
A big well done the U14 girls tonight when they all played their part in a great team performance with a 5 point win over St Macartans. The backs were strong in the tackle with Carla McKenna working hard and the whole half back line working tirelessly, Sascha Hughes and Cara McCoubrey running midfield, making big strong runs and our forwards were getting on the end off some great scores with Clare Carty proving a handful in full forward and Aine Gormely getting some super points as well, but the all the players put in a great nights work a big well done to the team.

The Tyrone Intermediate and Senior Championships take place this weekend with Edendork playing Gortin on Saturday evening and Trillick playing Dungannon on Sunday evening. Being very neutral here at Killeeshil GFC we wish all the Clubs well with former residents from all the Clubs involved now calling Killeeshil their home, but if we were to sway to one side of the fence, we’ll keep our fingers crossed for both Edendork and Dungannon where we have benefited from their former and current Clubmen looking after youth teams for us. Don’t tell Trillick or Gortin.
Killeeshil GFC sends its sincere condolences to The Hughes Family, Clonavaddy and The McKearney Family, Slane, on the death of Sadie Woods, Granville. Mary, Queen of the Gael, Pray for her.
