Club Membership

Annual Cub membership is now due
All players must be fully paid up members to take part in any training sessions or play club games.

Please contact Sean Owens Club Registrar.

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

After a great turnout last week, training for our younger players continues this week as follows:

Indoor at Sports Pavilion – 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: Thursday night under lights from 7-8pm at Pairc na nOg. £1 per child to cover cost of lights.

U14 continue to train indoor on Thurs night from 6:30-7:30pm.  As the Feile begins next weekend we need all U14 players to dedicate themselves to training – if you can’t attend but remain available for selection then please let management team know. Best of luck to Chuck from the U14 Management Team as he fulfils an ambition he’s harboured since first seeing the film Billy Elliott as he competes in Strictly Come Dancing next weekend – please show him your support on the night (we think he’ll need it!).

U16  training runs indoor in Club Hall on Sundays at 11am.  Remember that 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. St Canice’s always welcome new players, or players who have perhaps drifted away from football over the last few years, to come and get involved.  Contact Youth Officers with queries or to register.  We’d also welcome adults who’d be happy and prepared to get involved with helping, coaching or running a team – don’t let the fact that you mightn’t have much experience put you off – there are plenty of resources to help, and there’s a great support network around the Club, from the Executive, the Youth Officers and the rest of the underage management team. Again, contact the Youth Officers for more information. Important – all coaches and parents working with underage players this year must have done the Child Protection Certificate in the last 3 years – if you need to do/renew this course please speak to Francis or Tony who can book you on the next course in Roe Valley Leisure Centre on Fri 22nd Feb (7-10pm).  Anyone interested in the Foundation Coaching Course should also forward their names to the Youth Officers – course running Sat 23rd Feb (9:30am-4pm) in Limavady.

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 shortly.
