With the last of the competition of the year coming to a close we hosted a final of great significance to the club on Saturday last when Tubbercurry played Coolera in the Martin Brennan Memorial Tournament Final. On a cool but foggy evening  an entertaining game ended in a 1-10 to 0-11 win for Tubbercurry. It was a fitting tribute to Martin a week after his anniversary. Our photo shows Anne Brennan, Martin's Wife, presenting the Cup to TUbber Captain with Co Board Chairman Cyril Feehily.

Also at the weekend our Tourlestrane Mascot which adorns the cross roads at Rhue was returned unharmed to the club at the match on Saturday night last following our call out for its return having gone missing on Saturday week last. Thanks to all who helped to recover our mascot which is of great sentimental value. With that in mind Its also time to get the flags and bunting down and in cold storage for next year when we hope we will need them again. Once again thanks to everyone for all the flags and Green and Gold through out the parish over the last year. 

Our national lottery syndicate final quarterly draw took place in our main Sponsors Flynn's in Aclare on Saturday last. The winners were as follows €1000 Erin & Kevin Gilligan, €500 each to Niall & Kathryn Tracey and Liam & Gerri Lundy. 4 Winners of €200 were Oliver Richardson, Jerry & Geraldine Lundy, |Brendan & Kathleen Murtagh, Ray & Kathleen Tobin. 2 Winners of €200 John Gallagher, Aclare and Padraig Keogh, Tubbercurry. and 10 winners of €100 were jimmy Coleman/Paul Walsh, John James Gilmartin Tourlestrane, Pat Normanly, Jimmy & Josie Gildea, Pat Quinn, Padraig Marren Tubberoddy, Dominic & Teresa Lynch, David & Judith Bailey, Patricia Kelly and Patricia Lawrence. Thanks to all our supporters for their continued support.

Once again we are making a call out for your club pictures during the year or especially older photos and videos as we are trying to put a library of videos and photos or club memorabilia. The plan is to scan in the hard copies and return the original to its owner.
