The Biggest Loser 2017

Adapted from the Guardian Newspaper:
8 teams will battle it out against each other in a bid to become Monageer/Boolavogue’s biggest loser for 2017. The teams are all based on the townslands in Monageer and Boolavogue, made up of both men and women of ages, shapes and sizes. The biggest loser is the clubs biggest fundraiser each year, and also raises the profile of the club, and allows new people an opportunity to become involved. The competition kicks off in Monageer, in the GAA Complex with weigh-ins starting at 8pm. From then onwards, the floodlights in the pitch will be on every evening from 5pm to 10pm for people to exercise in safety. There will also be circuit training every friday night at 8pm for all participants. The first event will take place on the 5th of February, the bog run. The next event will be the cycle on the 19th. There are two options, a 16km option and a 40 km option. The final event is then on the 5th of march with the 8km run/walk, starting at the church in Boolavogue and finishing in the GAA complex in Monageer. There will also be a 2km walk option. Finally then, the final weigh in will take place on March 10th, with the winners being announced in the Harrow pub on the 11th of march.

Junior Football Quarter Final

Well done to the junior football team who beat Blackwater on Saturday to qualify for the semi final where we will face Cushinstown. The game started slowly for us and despite getting back into the game too many wides were the problem as we went in at half time 0-05 to 0-03 behind. We managed to close the gap in the second half but couldn’t quite manage to draw level despite having most of the play. We were 0-07 to 0-06 behind going into injury time when a long kick from Ray O Brien travelled over the goalkeepers head and into the net to put us two points ahead. Moments later another long ball found Chris Daly in space where he managed to get our second goal. We found the net for a third time a minute later but it was ruled out for a foul earlier in play. Final Score 2-06 to 0-07.
