There will be a Senior Mens Players Meeting on this Saturday (the 28th of January) at 4pm in the Hillary Rooms, Banada. All Senior Panel members are asked to attend.
The club would like to congratulate and send best wishes to our esteemed Chairperson, Brendan Leonard, as he takes up the role as  County Minor Board Chairperson. Richard Kennedy has been named as the minor team manager for the year and the U-16 manager will be James Leonard! Good luck to both in their new roles.
Well done to Senior ladies player, Katie Walsh who represented St. Attracta's when playing on the Connacht Ladies Gaelic Football Post Primary All Stars Team in the Post Primary Interprovincial tournament on Saturday, in Kinegad, Westmeath.
The U-8 and U-10 mixed coaching sessions for boys and girls football continues on Wednesdays with the u8's from 6.30 to 7.30 and the u10's from 7.30, in Banada Abbey Hall. Any new boys and girls are invited to come along and join in the fun.

It was with regret we learned on Sunday of the passing of Mrs. Phil Tuohy, ex Principal Of Kilmactigue NS. Having come back to Kilmactigue in the mid 50's she was a leader in the promotion of Irish Culture in Gaelic  Games and Scor na nOg in the community, she brought manys a car load of eager Tourlestrane players to underage games all over the county. Phil was a tireless community worker, among other things through the Community Games, her promotion of Tourlestrane GAA club, her lifelong involvement in Aclare Development Council and justly Phil was rewarded with the Sligo Person of the Year in true recognition of her unwavering service to our community. To her heart broken Husband Dan and daughter Maria, son Justin and her extended family we express our deepest sympathy. Ar dheis Dé go raibh Sí.
