Congratulations to Amy Boyle Carr on winning the Highest Achieving sports person of the year for Sligo IT. Well done Amy from all at Naomh Conaill Gaa Club.

Naomh Conaill hosted a very successful Health & Wellbeing event in the clubhouse on Wednesday 27th March 2019. The event was aimed at minor players from U14 upwards. It was great to have a crowd of about 70+ people made up of players, coaches and mentors listen, engage and participate in the presentations. We had three very experienced contributors make presentations on the night. Donna McGettigan from Donna McGettigan Nutrition, Denise O’Boyle from Orianna Health & Wellness in Killybegs and the County Health & Wellbeing Chairperson, Kevin Mills gave three very informative and engaging presentations around the areas of nutrition, mental health and alcohol, drugs and gambling. It is hoped that this will be the first of many health & wellbeing events that the club will host in the future. A big thanks to all the players, coaches and mentors who took the time out of their training schedule to attend. Thanks also to the club executive who helped to facilitate this important event.

A big thank you to all who supported our ‘Come Dine with me’ fundraiser. Most of our hosts held their dinner parties on St Patrick’s evening and then finished the night in Kennedys where a great night was had by all.  We held a very successful raffle for Paul Dawson’s MS Fundraising. Paul himself was on hand to pull out the winning tickets.  Many thanks to all who sponsored prizes on the night namely, Terence in the Blue Haven, Rosaleen and Conal in Lisdanar B&B, Sean and Geraldine in Donegal Waste, Glenties Furnishings and of course Paul Dawson himself who kindly donated a gallon of grouse. Kieran Kennedy also sponsored a super prize of an overnight hotel break for two which was specifically set aside for one of the hosts. Bernie O’Malley and Pauline Gallagher were the lucky winners. Sean McLoone, your local coal-man, kindly sponsored wine for each of the hosts to which we are very grateful. Last but not least a huge thank you goes out all of our hosts. All of our hosts admitted it was hard work but totally enjoyed the evening so well done to you all. We still have some dinner parties organised in the coming weeks as this weekend didn’t suit everyone so hopefully all goes well for them and don’t forget to forward your pictures to the Club Facebook page.
