Dates for your diary Visit to Áras an Uachtaráin


Since our last edition, our U-14 team qualified for both championship and league finals. Unfortunately despite pushing their opponents all the way in both matches they could not overcome their West Tyrone opponents Urney. I wish to congratulate the players and management for their outstanding achievements this year. Meanwhile the Golden Jubilee celebrations have featured prominently over the last two months. The club’s joint competition with Laghey school was an outstanding success. We then had the historic visit to the club by Liam O’Neill, An tUachtarán CLG. The President hopes to renew his acquaintances with us when he attends the Gala dinner next April. Recently we had our first ever Golf Classic. It was a huge social and financial success. Looking ahead, I hope our planned summer camp in August will be memorable and rewarding occasion for our youth players. We are also eagerly awaiting the cycle spin ceili events arranged for September. Yours sincerely, Terry McShane

GAA President’s Visit

Printing kindly sponsored by

On the 10th June the GAA President Liam O’Neill visited the clubrooms. A large crowd turned out to welcome him and a guard of honour was formed by youth players, as he made his way to his first task of planting a tree. He then was asked to bury a time capsule with the following items enclosed:2013 Club Committee photograph, the team sheets for Killyman v Castlederg reserves and senior league match played 9th June, winners of the Laghey PS “What Killyman means to me” competition, recent grocery receipts, local, NI and world news highlights and a parish and mass leaflet from the 9th June. This capsule will not be opened until 2064. The president then posed for photographs and was presented with gifts of local crafts and produce; Jimmy O’Neill - blackthorn walking stick, Dermot McGahan - potatoes and Hughes Mushrooms - mushrooms . This was an historic event and our thanks to all who turned out and give the president a very warm welcome. We will see him again at our Gala Dinner on the 24h April 2014.

Youth Football Under 14 Championship Final Grade 4 - Killyman V Urney 27th June at Garvaghy Killyman got off to a blistering start having the ball in the Urney net twice within the first five minutes with goals from Daragh Morgan and Daryl Comac. However Killyman were not able to continue this pace, as Urney gradually took control scoring two quick goals and further points resulting in a four point lead at half time. Killyman had a number of clear goal chances during the first half but failed to take them. Half Time Score Killyman 2.0 Urney 2.4 Killyman needed a good start to the second half but unfortunately Urney scored the first two scores before a single reply by Cathal McGahan. Urney continued to dominate and extended their lead to eight points with about 10 minutes left. Killyman took control in the last 10 minutes but two further scores by Daragh Morgan was all that they could muster against a very stubborn Urney defence. Urney scored a further point and ran out winners on a score of Killyman 2.3 Urney 2.10
