Well done to Aoibhe Byrne, Paige Beattie, Sarah McGuinness and Katie Feehan who are all part of the Armagh U13 County Academy and took part in their first training session on Sunday morning. 

Last Man Standing

The second round of our The Last Man Standing competition took place at the weekend and again it saw a lot of fallers. The next round of fixtures, for those left in, will take place this coming Tuesday, Wednesday and a Thursday night so team selections will be needed asap.

Armagh GAA Club Draw

The very successful Armagh GAA Club draw is running again in 2020. The draw takes place over 4 months - March, April, May and June - with 16 prizes on offer each month. The first prize each month is £10k, right down to a 16th prize of £200.

Tickets are priced at £100 each with £80 from every ticket going directly to the club after we reach our minimum target of sales. They can be bought by paying the £100 up front or 4 monthly instalments of £25 per month.

Tickets can be purchased from any of our committee members and the more tickets we sell, the more money the club raises. We are encouraging all our club members, families and friends to purchase a ticket either individually or maybe as a group of 4 friends or family members clubbing together at £25 each.

It is a brilliant opportunity to raise much needed funds for the club whilst also being in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.
