Senior Men

Our senior men finished their league campaign last Wednesday with a disappointing home defeat against Tir na nÓg, 1 – 14 to 0 – 7.

It was a fairly evenly matched opening to the game with the sides three points apiece in the first fifteen minutes, Greg McCabe, Kristian Magill and Ryan McCabe getting the Shane’s scores. Tir na nÓg then went ahead for first time with their fourth point and they quickly followed this up with the only goal of the game to now lead by four with Greg McCabe replying for the home side with pointed free. Tir na nÓg dominated the rest of the first-half and outscored the Shane’s four points to one, with Greg McCabe again getting the Shane’s score.

The away side continued to play the better football during the second period and restricted the Shane’s to just a further points, courtesy of Micheál Brady and Cormac Feely, whilst adding a further six to their total to run out comfortable winners.

Despite this defeat the Shane’s maintained their place in Intermediate Division 1A courtesy of their better head to head performances against Wolfe Tones during the year.

Next up for the lads is the championship and following Friday night’s draw they have been placed in a group alongside Eire Óg, Grange and Clan na Gael, with the fixtures scheduled as follows:

Away to Eire Óg: Sunday 11 August @ 6.00pm

Home to Grange: Saturday 17 August @ 7.00pm

Away to Clan na Gael: Sunday 25 August @ TBC

Senior Ladies

Our senior ladies are scheduled to be at home against Lisummon in the championship on Saturday 17 August but there is a potential fixture clash at the moment with our senior men also scheduled to play at home on that date at the same time. If Armagh Senior ladies lose to Mayo in their upcoming fixture then the Shane’s senior ladies’ game against Lisummon remains as 17 August, however if Armagh win and go on to the semi-final on 25 August, then our senior ladies championship game moves forward to 14 August.

U16 Boys

Our U16 boy’s amalgamation of Patrick Rankins were involved in a high scoring encounter with Tullysaran on Thursday evening in Camlough. With less than fifteen minutes remaining in the game the Rankins trailed by nine points but they finished the game the stronger side but just couldn’t make up the gap, eventually losing out by four points, 5 – 14 to 4 – 13.

U14 Boys

The Patrick Rankins U14 boys kept their push for the league title well on course following a comprehensive win over Culloville on Tuesday evening. Played in Poyntzpass, the young Rankins hit the front in the opening minutes and they went on to totally dominate the game, playing some brilliant football to claim the all-important win. Next up is a game away to Dromintee on Tuesday evening.

U12 Girls

Our U12 girls were fine form last Tuesday evening against Carrickcruppen. The Shane’s were on the front foot right from the off and they played some brilliant football throughout the game to run out deserving and comprehensive winners.

Good Luck

Everyone at the club would like to wish our senior footballer Kristian Magill and his girlfriend Chelsea Graham as they head off to their teaching jobs in China and the next chapter of their lives.

Well Done

Well done to our former player Michael Smith who was placed as the 26th Fittest Man in the World following his participation in the World Cross Fit games at the weekend. A brilliant performance from a great young man……maith thú Michael.

Tidy Club Grounds

Whilst it is great to see everyone spending the long evenings enjoying our club facilities, we would ask that people use the numerous bins dotted around the club to dispose of their rubbish. We want to keep our grounds clean, safe and tidy for all and would greatly appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this. 


Last week’s winning lotto numbers were 1, 16, 26 & 31. There were no jackpot winners and 1 x lucky dip winner. The lotto jackpot now stands at an impressive £4,150.


Everyone at the club would like to offer their sympathies to the family of Alice Farrell who passed away recently. Alice was the 96 year old aunt of our senior men’s manager Aidan Farrell. The club also extends its sympathies to family of local business man Brian Conlon who, along with his company First Derivatives, have been good friends and supporters of the club over the past few years.

May they both rest in peace.
