Pearse Óg’s 1916 Centenary 7’s Tournament
The Pearse Ógs 1916 Centenary 7’s tournament took place Saturday 16th July commemorating the Easter Rising of 1916 and in particular the lives of Padraig and William Pearse whom our club was named after all them years ago. The tournament was generously sponsored by Conor Duffy from Duffy Construction, Rock Road. This tournament was only opened for footballing clubs associated with the Pearse name.
After some good football in the earlier matches the final took place between Pearse Óg and Dóiretrasna Pearses from Derry City. After an initially tight game the Pearse Óg showed some good strength in depth running out winners with the experience of Marty Gribben, Chris Rafferty, and Marc Cullen mixed in with the youth of Conor Nugent, Vincy Brady, Eoghan Heaney, Sean Sutton, Ruairí McCay, Conor McNicholl and Ryan Kearney. A huge thank you and credit to our field committee who ensured the pitches where all in excellent condition with the weather to suit.
The tournament was then followed by a talk on the life of Padraig Pearse by Roddy Hegarty from the Cardinal O’Fiaich Library in the social club. This was an intriguing talk which gave a great insight into the life of Padraig Pearse. Everyone in the crowd where certainly in agreement that the talk was fascinating and well presented by Roddy.
In the evening we finished a very successful day with music from some of the very best traditional musicians around, which once again added to the excellent atmosphere in the social club. Maith thú!
Pearse Óg Sportive Cycle 2016
Preparations for this year`s major fundraiser are well under way with our teams & leaders out on spins 2-3 times a week. With coaches from all age groups taking part, we would encourage all parents, friends & members to support the Club to make the Cycle a success. We also have players from our Senior & Ladies teams taking part.
There are two routes to choose from, the smaller route of 50k ideal for any novice, takes in the beautiful country side villages of Charlemont, Blackwatertown, Caledon, Tynan, Middletown before finishing at Pearse Óg park, Ballycrummy. Then for all the pro`s out there they will continue on the100k route to Killylea, Caledon, Glaslough, Middletown, & back to Pearse Óg park were refreshments will be served.
Cycling clubs are welcome to come along on the day & take part, registration fee is £15 per person and every one will receive a goody bag at the finish. Both routes 50k/100k will be fully marshalled. Water stations will be available along each route. Monies raised at the cycle will go to help the running of the club & we will also be making a donation to Marie Curie Cancer Charity. Please give generously to these two worthy causes

On Saturday last our Under 10s travelled to Truagh for their annual John Treanor Memorial Blitz. Due to holidays and the different age restrictions we travelled with a relatively young and inexperienced squad. But as always our young Gaels rose to the occasion qualifying for the cup from their group following some great games against Donegal, Fermanagh, Monaghan and Cavan opponents. This set up a quarter final against Ardrath from Donegal and with probably our best performance of day the lads ran out convincing winners. In our Semi-final against Fr Rocks from Cookstown tiredness and inexperience began to tell in the second half and despite some terrific performances we lost out in a close match. Even so a great day was had by all, the skills and determination displayed by the young members of our squad were a joy to watch. A special thanks to our under 8 players and management for their help and co-operation, the under 8s who travelled and played on Saturday were a credit to the club and their families.
Training continues Wednesday night 6pm to 7pm at Pearse Óg park, please remember water and gum shield. Contact Raymond 07826950107 / Paul 07933517754
