Rocky Road

Thanks to all who took part in our second annual Rocky Road challenge. Also, a massive thanks to the helpers, medics organisers, sponsors, marshals, those who provided food or entertainment on the day. Thanks to anyone who helped out in any way. Club pitcures are on our facebook page.

MacRory Cup

Good luck to Michael Murphy, Ryan Gaskin, Aaron Boyle, Ryan Daly, Ronan Quinn, Zygimantas Burnickas, Dean Hanrahan, Sean Óg Hoey, Sean McGennity and Ryan Hughes who will have the honour of running out onto the Atheltic Grounds’ pitch for Thursday’s MacRory Cup final against St Patrick’s, Maghera. Good luck also to coach Martin O’Rourke and the entire squad. A special mention for joint manager Barry Shannon too, who represented Dromintee so well for years. The Dromintee club has a massive association with this competition but to have 10 players on a squad in the final is breaking new group. The game, to start at 1.15pm, will be live on BBC, but we ask members to get to Armagh to support the boys.
