Good luck to the #SuperReds 🔴⚫️
It’s with great sadness St Bronagh’s GAA learn of the untimely passing of our Friend Aidan Kennedy. Aidan was not only a regular to the Social Club but also a great help to the Club over the years frequently offering his time. He was always happy to see the club doing well. His friendly persona will be greatly missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Deirdre and Aidan’s Family.
Aidan’s Funeral will take place on Friday 31st May at 12noon, St Mary’s church, Glenn.

We are pleased that from this week we will be providing a new facility for members to purchase/order club gear. Following the closure of E O’Hare & Sons all official club gear will be distributed by the club directly.
To this end we will have a Club Shop in operation one night per week, in the Social Club. The shop will open from 8.00-9.30pm each Thursday and will be located in the small meeting room commencing this Thursday 30th May.
Please note initial stock levels will be at a minimum as we will be running on the transferred stock from E O’Hare & Sons. However we will have order forms available for all club gear. We will be increasing the stock levels over the coming weeks and months to try and accommodate the main range of gear.
There will be an email address in operation for queries relating to club gear outside of the Club Shop hours: email@example.com
Please note orders cannot be placed through the email address, it is for queries/information only. A copy of the order form will be posted online also.
There are currently no card payment facilities available so it will be cash only at this stage. A minimum 50% deposit will be required to place any order, with balance due on collection.
We thank members for their patience in the time since O’Hare’s closed and to those who have volunteered their time to run the shop.
There will be a meeting with the Management Committee on Monday the 13th May ‘19 at 8:30pm regarding the Social Club and it’s current struggles.
The Social Club has been a great venue for a quiet pint, parties, celebrations & plays but in recent months there has been a noticeable decrease in patrons and also volunteers. With the lack of volunteers especially it’s making it incredibly difficult just to open the doors on an average night, not to mention when there’s an event on.
This will only change with your help, our members. Young & old, male & female – we NEED you. If you can attend this meeting, please do. The future of St Bronagh’s Social Club is in all of our hands.
If you are unable to attend and have any ideas or suggestions please message this page or speak to any Social Club or Committee member. Thank you.

As you all will be aware St Bronagh’s GAC have organised an Internet Safety talk tomorrow night for children in Primary 4 to Primary 7. All Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian – there will be a chat with parents on what to look out for and how to best ensure your Children are safely using the Internet.
Internet safety is becoming increasingly important in the day to day life in children of all ages, so we believe giving some guidance will be of great benefit at an early age.
Talk presented by the well known Wayne Denner. Please share.
Date: Wednesday 8th May 2019
Venue: St Bronagh’s Primary School, Rostrevor
This is a free event open to all children within the above age group.

Rostrevor (4-7) v Newry Shamrocks (4-5)
Yet again this seeding group threw up another classic encounter that promotes all that is good about the game. This time it was Newry Shamrocks that nearly put the young reds to the sword in the final round of group games. Rostrevor required this win to ensure that they finished in the top 2 which will see them playing in the South Down division 1 league shortly.
With perfect conditions Shamrocks came flying out the gate catching the reds in their tracks. The greens rattled in 4 goals past a shell shocked Rostrevor team who had a total of 5 first team regulars missing. Things where not looking good but like all reds teams they battled back through a goal by Nathan Caulfield and points by Johnny Devlin and Caulfield again saw the reds trail the visitors by 4-3 to 1-3 at half time.
The management had to make changes at half time to try a pull this game out of the fire.
The start of the second half saw the fired up reds start to claw back into the Shamrocks lead. With the defence tightened up and the team starting to work as a unit again goals where pulled back by Philip South, Keelan Clerkin and Nathan Caulfield.
The reds took the lead in the heart stopping final 5 mins which they were not to lose. There were great performances in the second half by David Hegarty, Ben O’ Hanlon and Ryan Magee, Harry Cooper and Nathan Caulfield.
It takes 2 teams to make a great match and the Shamrocks display defies their league position. We wish them well for the rest of the season in their respective league.
Next up for the super reds is the start of our Division 1 league campaign v Ballyholland @ 11am on Sunday 5th May in Pettit Park.
Ballyholland had a good win over Rostrevor only over a week ago so I am sure the young reds will do their best to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
