Ladies set for New Year

The recent Roscommon Ladies AGM did not conclude all business and so an EGM is scheduled for 7.30 pm in Hannon’s Hotel on Monday, January 22nd.

  Rosemary Coyle, injury fund coordinator, will address the meeting and will answer any queries in relation to the fund on the night. Clubs are requested to send details of club committees to the Ladies Board Secretary immediately.

  Roscommon Ladies are in action against Mayo in the Connacht Winter League this Sunday (14th) at 2 at Michael Glavey’s.

Referees’ meeting this Friday

The Annual General Meeting for all existing referees takes place this Friday night (12th) at 8 pm in Hannon’s Hotel in Roscommon town.

  A full turn-out is expected as there are many important issues up for discussion. Clubs are also reminded that the new Referee Course is taking place at the end of January. Each Club must have at least one person to put forward for this course.   

 For further information, contact Haulie Beirne (Referee Administrator) on 086-8293845.

Neighbours to visit The Hyde

Despite the fact that it may only be an FBD League game there is sure to be plenty of interest in the clash of Roscommon and Mayo on Sunday next at Dr Hyde Park. Throw in at 2 pm.

  With the cancellation of the match between Mayo and Galway at MacHale Park last Sunday, that match has been re-fixed for this Friday evening at the same venue and it will mean that Mayo will be playing their third game in five days. Some of their main players will be back on the panel after the team holiday to Malaysia.

  Last year in Kiltoom, Mayo staged a late recovery to overcome Roscommon in the FBD League and clashes between the sides are always well contested. This one will certainly be no different.
