Club Social: Our social night takes place this Friday evening in The Thatched Cottage in Ballycommon.  Proceedings will get underway with dinner at 7.30pm, followed by live music and DJ throughout the night.  It promises to be an enjoyable occasion for all in attendance.

AGM:  This year’s AGM will be held on Friday 23rd November in the GAA Centre.  Nominations for all officer positions and selector roles will be accepted from members between now and Tuesday 20th.  Nominations or motions should be submitted in writing to the secretary Kevin Maher before the deadline.

Under 21: We are awaiting the draw for the semi-final stage of the mid U21 A hurling championship.  Clonakenny/Moneygall will be joined in the semi-finals by Thurles Sarsfields, Loughmore Castleiney and Moyne Templetuohy Og.

Lotto: Our jackpot stood at €10,550 for Tuesday night’s draw.  At last week’s lotto night in Julia’s the club presented our annual donation to the parish social services committee.  Our next draw will be held in Ollie’s on Tuesday 13th.

20 Years Ago: In 1992 Moneygall won the north and county U21A hurling titles for the first time.  With all but one of the starting team that won the U21B titles in 1991 underage again, we qualified for the north final following victories over Toomevara and Nenagh Eire Og.  The north final against Roscrea ended in a draw, 1-7 each, before Moneygall won the replay a week later by 2-16 to 1-10.  We had a 2-13 to 4-1 win over Killenaule in the county semi final, and then the team gave one of its finest displays of the year in the final to beat Cashel King Cormacs by 1-12 to 1-7 to capture the county title.
The team that started the county final was: Philip Quinlan; Neil Maher, Jim Hoolan, Declan Ryan; Donagh Hoolan, Brian O’Dwyer, Tom Delaney (captain); Eamon Troy, Neil Quinlan; John Doughan, Noel Ryan, John Shelly; Fintan Harney, Tom Kenneally, John Maher. Subs: Seamus Boland, Paddy Whyte, Andrew Keeshan, Michael Sullivan, Francis Gleeson, Denis Sullivan, Michael Dwyer, Padraig Kennedy, Liam Carroll, Eoin Toohey.
