St Canice’s GAC, Dungiven – Club Notes w/c Mon 24th October 2016
St Canice’s GAC are pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Murphy as Senior Football Manager for the 2017 Season. His backroom team will be announced in due course.
We wish Paul every success in the coming year and hope all club members, supporters and the community as a whole get behind Paul and his senior management team and give them their full support.

As is the tradition in our club at the end of each season, all Underage Manager positions have now become vacant. To try and ensure the best possible planning and preparation for next year’s football we would like those people interested in managing and coaching teams in 2017 to please give their names to the current Youth Officer, Banty McGuigan, by 6pm on Saturday 19th November.
This year’s AGM will take place on Sunday 27th November at 3pm.
This week’s winning Lotto numbers, drawn on Monday night, are 06 – 12 – 27 – 29.
There was no Jackpot winner and no £20 winners. Next week the Jackpot rises to £5,200.
As always, thanks to everyone who regularly supports us with the Club Lotto. This is our main fundraising effort and is essentially our lifeblood income to help us fund all of our teams running costs, and to also support many of our strategic development projects. Whilst the Lotto remains a strong contributor for us we know that it can and should do better – parts of our town are no longer served by regular collectors, and we’d like to change this. If you think you can help, either as a collector or a coordinator of our Lotto, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please give your name to any of the Executive Committee.

2016 End-of-Year Club Dinner Dance
The Club will run an end-of-year dinner dance on Saturday 3rd December in The Roe Park Resort, Limavady. This is intended to be a community-event that is open to all friends of St Canice’s GAC: members, their families & friends, and our fellow-gaels from across our neighbouring hurling, camogie and ladies’ football clubs. This will be a non-profit event aimed at bringing all of our club friends together in the way we did for last year’s Gala Dinner which was a huge success. Tickets (to include 4-course meal, music by the super Bad Penny, and a free bus to/from venue) are priced at £25 each, and we have a £5/week payment scheme running for anyone who wishes to use it. To reserve your ticket please give a deposit and your name to any committee member or leave in the bar.
