Important: A new GAA ruling came into effect on 1st Jan 2013 making it mandatory for all Underage Players to wear Mouth-Guards / Gumshields during all training sessions and matches – the club will operate a strict policy with regards to this rule so please ensure your children comply – the Club now stocks gum shields in the club shop (open 11am-2pm on Saturdays).  Gum Shields will also be available to buy at the Registration night.

Youth Notes

Indoor training for our younger players continues this week at the Sports Pavilion as follows: U6: Mon 6-7pm, U8: Mon 7-8pm, U10: Thurs 7-8pm. £1 per child to cover cost of hall. Late registrations will be accepted before each session and gum shields will also be on sale.

We’d ask that parents drop and collect their children from training promptly. U12’s train on Thursday night under lights from 7-8pm at Pairc na nOg. U14 train at Pairc na nOg on Thursday night from 6:30-7:30pm.

The scheduled Féile games on Sunday were not able to be completed because the pitch at Glen was frozen. As the Feile is now underway we need all U14 players to dedicate themselves to training – if you can’t attend training or matches but remain available for general selection then please let the management team know.

U16 training runs indoor in Club Hall on Sundays at 11am.

Our minors played well at home on Sunday afternoon to record a good win against Limavady in the quarter-final of the Carlin Duffy cup, winning 4-08 to 0-07, Fergal Irwin impressive in scoring 2-02.

The wearing of gum shields is now mandatory for all underage training sessions and matches – club shop stocks gum shields for all sizes – open 11am-1pm every Saturday. All players must be registered before they can take part in training or matches.

Féile Peil na nÓg 2013

As part of the City of Culture celebrations for 2013 the Féile Peil na nÓg festival of Gaelic Football will be hosted by County Derry in June of 2013 – as a host club Dungiven will be again required to host children and coaches from the visiting teams.  Planning for this huge weekend begins now – we’ll be in touch shortly with all player families to begin organising hosts – families will be expected to host a minimum of two children per house.  We’d ask all members to support the Club in our efforts with regards to Féile – as well as hosting there’ll be lots of other jobs to be done during the event so the more willing to lend a hand the better.

Club Gear

 The Club Shop, which stocks an extensive range of Club merchandise, is now open every Saturday from 11am-1pm.

St Canice’s Gac Presents

“The Sweetie Bottle”
In St Canice’s Hall Main Street Dungiven.
From the company who originally brought you ‘A Night With George’, Brassneck Theatre Company presents ‘The Sweety Bottle.’

Belfast in the 1970s.  The height of the troubles. In a room at the back of popular confectionery shop, ‘The Sweety Bottle’, operates an even more popular drinking den. This shebeen is a place where punters come to escape the troubles around them and also to exorcise their own personal demons.

Through the many huge characters and calamitous incidents, we embark on a voyage to an era where the city and its people never ceased to find humour in even the darkest of times. A hilariously nostalgic trip down memory lane, ‘The Sweety Bottle’ is sure to have you crying with laughter as we remember everything that was good about Belfast during the rare auld times.

Tickets on sale Friday 1st March 2013 in the Club. Please Note, Tickets cannot be pre booked !! They will be sold on a first come first served basis!!

Easter Sunday Night 31st March in the Main Hall! “Out of the Blue” Doors open at 8pm
