Sports Specific First Aid 

Over the last 2 weekends a total of 14 coaches and parents attended a First Aid Course delivered by Down Training & Development. All those who qualified reported it was the most informative course they'd been on and even the coaches already trained learnt new skills. Many thanks to James McClements for his work with our members and helping keeping our players safe.

We will run more of these courses as it's a vital skill for our coaches and parents. If you're interested please pm the page to book. Cost of the course is free to fully paid up registered members. 

 


Senior men play Castlewellan on Friday night (27th August) at home. Throw in @7.30pm. Please come out and show your support to our men.

Last Friday night representatives from Drumaness GAC travelled to St John's GAA to present the proceeds from last Saturday's Tractor Run in aid of The Joseph Steen Fund.

A total amount of £2787.74 has been raised from their fundraiser, well done to everyone involved. The Steen Family are very grateful for the support given by so many to aid Joseph's recovery as are us all at St John's and Aughlisnafin GAC

The Executive Committee and Members of St John’s GAA wish to express their deepest condolences to Club Members and Juvenile Sponsors Jane and Paul O'Connor on the sad passing of Jane's beloved father Ronan.

To our Juvenile playing members Aisling,  Rosie, Danny, James and Aidan our prayers are with you all, Papa Ronan was so proud of you all, on and off the pitch, and would have been so delighted with Rosie's goal for him last Thursday night.

To Ronan's wife Sheila and all the McVeigh Family Circle we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Mary, Queen of the Gael,  pray for him.

May he rest in Eternal Peace

Commiserations to our senior players Andrew & Conor Gilmore after Down were defeated at the weekend against Roscommon. As a club we are super proud of you and your team. 

 


Congratulations to Stephen O’Hare on winning the Down tickets to last weekends game in Breffni Park and many thanks again to the County Board for donating the tickets on behalf of the Joseph Steen Fund. The tickets raised £400 which is brilliant. 

 


Last Saturday saw St Johns GAA & Aughlisnafin GAC come together for the St Patrick’s Primary PSG & Christ the King Primary PSG in association with St Colman’s GAC Drumaness Tractor Run with all proceeds going to the Joseph Steen fund. 


Joseph’s family were overwhelmed at the turn out given the bad weather forecasted. A massive £2617.74 was raised on the day. On behalf of St John’s GAA & Aughlisnafin GAC, we wish to thank everyone for their help & support for making the event a huge success. Everyone was a pleasure to work along side and we are grateful for the support shown to the family and to us as fellow Gael’s.

Congratulations to our U13 ladies who played Saul at home on Thursday night in that stifling heat. Management could not have asked for a better team performance. The girls worked tirelessly from the start. Its a pleasure to watch this bunch of girls develop and grow in their skills.



Special thanks to Jane O’Connor from Chatterbox Nursery for sponsoring the girls jerseys.

Final Score St John’s 7.12 - 3.06 Saul

 

 

St. John’s wish to thank Darren Magorrian Landscapes and Groundworks for sponsoring a new set of jerseys for our U9.5 teams.

Update on Joseph Steen Fundraiser:

Following on from the phenomenal offers we received last week to construct the wet-room for Joseph ASAP, the plans have been drew up and the builder is ready to go next week.

There are a few items we need to make this happen with no delays. The plan is to get in and get the work completed as quickly as possible to cause the least disruption to the family. To get everything in place we need

1) 1.5 tonne digger (no bigger)

2) 1 tonne dumper

3) 10 tonne skip

4) 10 metres concrete (6 metres needed initially)

Please pm the page or contact 07793066146 if you can help.

Following on from the phenomenal response we had to our initial fundraiser for Joseph Steen, Joseph’s family, St John's GAA and Aughlisnafin GAC are so grateful to every single person who helped raise an amazing £1600 in 3 days.


Over the weekend we were contacted by our fellow Gaels in St Colman's GAC Drumaness along with St Patrick's PS and Christ the King Primary School, Drumaness, Co Down, who are hosting a tractor run on 7th August and all proceeds to this fundraiser.




We have since been approached by a local builder, Nicky Doyle from NW Doyle Construction and Mark Rooney from MPR Electrical and a number of tradesmen who have offered their time and expertise to do the work ASAP to help Joseph recover.


We often talk about #GAAFAMILY but this has blew us all away with the empathy and kindness shown.


We are launching a just giving page to help buy the materials and items needed to make life a bit easier for Joseph and his family. Every little amount helps and the family are shell-shocked at the offers to help.


The builder intends to carry out this work very soon and all offers of help are very welcome. Please pm St John's GAA Facebook page if you can offer time or materials.

 *Joseph Steen Fundraiser*

St John's GAA and Aughlisnafin GAC are running a joint fundraising initiative to help a juvenile player who got injured recently.

At this point in time Joseph cannot walk or stand and this understandably has made life very difficult for this young Gael.

To aid his return to full mobility he will need intensive physio and his family are facing increased costs dealing with his rehabilitation. 

We are hoping to raise funds to install a downstairs wet-room in his house to help assist with his recovery. 

Any excess funds the family don't need will be donated to charity.

To kick-start this we ran a ‘First Goal‘ competition for last Sunday’s Euros final. We raised £1900 in total, with £300 prize fund going to Colleen Cope for having the correct minute and £1600 for Joseph. Well done Colleen! 



St Colman's GAC Drumaness have very kindly teamed up with St Patricks Primary school Parent Support Group and Christ the King Primary School Parent Support Group to host a Tractor Run on Saturday 7th August with all proceeds being donated to towards Joseph’s Fund. 




Congratulations to our Ladies Minor player Cara McKee who was playing with the Down Minor County team & our Senior Men’s player Andrew Gilmore who was playing with the Down U20 County team last week!



Congratulations to Sarah McMullan on her win in the Down Draw.
