Billy Terry Cup U14 Football Tournament

Rathgormack will play Kilsheelan in the final of this tournament next Sunday 8th December at 3:00 PM in Rathgormack. This tournament was resurrected in 2012 to commemorate the memory of Billy Terry, who was a great support of the club down through the years, & who provided a playing field for the club through the 60’s & 70’s until the club purchased their own field in 1984.

Christmas Bazaar

The first fundraiser organised by the newly formed Rathgormack/Clonea All Weather Multi Games Area Committee goes ahead next Sunday from 2-5 PM in Rathgormack Community Centre when they host a Christmas Bazaar. The event will include an auction, a raffle with prizes for adults and children, a jumble sale, a cake sale, face painting, children's art corner, Christmas crafts and of course the man himself Santa Claus will be arriving into the Hiking Centre's grotto to visit all of the boys and girls. Rathgormack GAA Club fully support this venture & we would call on all our members to come along & help get this group off to a good start.

Kennedy’s Bar

Most of our members & people in the parish of Rathgormack & Clonea will know by now that last week Ned & Sinead Kennedy’s Bar in Rathgormack closed it’s door for the final time. The pub has been run by Ned & Sinead for the last 10 or 12 years & previously by Ned’s parents Maurice (RIP) & Helen. Before that Ned’s grandfather operated a pub from the premises & it has been estimated by those in the know that there has been a public house operated from the property in some shape or form over the last 150 years. Ned & Sinead, along with Maurice & Helen previously, have been great supporters of Rathgormack GAA Club for many years & along with Maudie Kennedy, who runs the other pub in the village, they have been the clubs jersey sponsors, & sponsors of many other things beside, for the last 15 years or so. The pub played host to many great days of celebration for Rathgormack GAA Club down through the years, & most people can still recall Monday 9th October 1995, as it stands out as a particularly intense day of celebrations following the club’s first senior football county final win in 77 years on the previous day. Everyone associated with Rathgormack GAA Club would like to thank the Kennedy’s for all they have done for us over the years, & while everyone is sad to see it go, we wish Ned & Sinead every success & happiness in their future ventures.
