Family Fun Day Tremendous Success

Cumann Pheadair Naofa broke tradition for this years 34th Annual Family Fun Day and Duck Derby which took place in Warrenpoint Municipal Park on Sunday 13 August.  The change of venue created lots of new faces and event organiser Feargal McCormack said the move of venue was a positive one which saw the community gather in one of the town landmarks for a day of fun for everyone.

 

There was lots of fun for all the family including face painting, bouncy castles, dancing exhibitions and a Ceili which saw our ladies team take to the stage & entertain the crowds. The musicians took to the band stand and played wonderful tunes to entertain all our visitors, some even took to the stage for a waltz! One of the most popular events saw club man John Daly steward the win a goldfish stand which saw the kids and adults throw for a fish with lots coming back for a second go! The young pointers has arts and crafts stalls while the tea ladies served the hundreds all day with tea and beautiful cake! 

 

The Annual Duck Derby also took place in the new duck pool which was filled by the local fire brigade. Gerry Gray made sure all the ducks got a fair start and first across the line was Katrina McPoland’s duck lifting her the £150 prize money! Not to mention the annual races which saw young and old get the trainers on to race for first across the line, a popular event as always!

 

Many thanks organiser Feargal McCormack for his sterling work and organisation of the annual event, to everyone who helped set up, who manned the event, provided entertainment and supported us in the park. We look forward to planning our 35th fun day!

Cumann Pheadair Naofa Overcome Bryansford in Championship Opener

Cumann Pheadair Naofa Senior Footballers defeated Bryansford in an eagerly-anticipated first round tie of the Morgan Fuels Senior Football Championshipon Thursday evening last. The game was hosted by Mayobridge in blustery conditions for football, which made for a low-scoring first half. Bryansford opened the scoring with a well-worked point before Niall McGovern smartly pointed to tie the game up at one point apiece. Bryansford seized the initiative with two pointed free-kicks, sandwiched either side of a sublime point from play, opening up a three point advantage for the Ford. Indeed, their dominance in this period could have resulted in more scores, with the crossbar twice coming to the Seasiders’ rescue. Jamie Grant struck a long-range point with the outside of his boot and this was quickly followed by another point when attacking defender, Ryan Boyle, raided into the Bryansford half to land a crucial score. The referee blew the half-time whistle shortly after with the game finely-balanced with Bryansford leading by the minimum, 0-04 to 0-03.

 

Bryansford opened the scoring in the second period to stretch their advantage to two points. Points from Ross McGarry and John Boyle respectively tied up the match before Bryansford edged in front once more, with a lovely point from play. However, from this moment, the Blues entered a purple patch, yielding five unanswered points in what was the telling period of the game. Ross McGarry kicked a nice point which was followed a curling, left-footed Aaron Magee point. The influential Jamie Grant landed his second of the game to open up a two-point advantage. Cumann Pheadair Naofa’s dominance continued when Donagh McAleenan coverted a free-kick, a score which was swiftly followed by a point from second-half substitute Ryan Mallon. Bryansford replied with a Danny Savage point but a determined Warrenpoint outfit continued attacking, landing three more points in succession; two frees from Ross McGarry either side of a second Ryan Mallon point. Bryansford clipped over what was to be the final score of the evening, with Cumann Pheadair Naofa prevailing on a scoreline of 0-13 to Bryanford’s 0-08.

 

John Boyle, Paddy Murdock and Ryan Magee were dominant in the Blues’ defence, while Jamie Grant was impressive in midfield. Ross McGarry landed a personal tally of 0-04 in the second half and the introduction of Ryan Mallon played a pivotal role in the Cumann Pheadair Naofa victory. The Warrenpoint side now advance to the second round of the Morgan Fuels Senior Football Championship where they await confirmation of their opponents in Monday’s draw. There were strong performances all over the field for Niall McAleenan’s men.

Warrenpoint Commit to ‘Respect the Water’ RNLI Programme

Cumann Pheadair Naofa had a great float in the Warrenpoint festival grand parade this year on the theme of water safety ‘respect the water’ to promote the partnership between the GAA and RNLI. 

 

The aim is to reduce the number of accidental deaths in and around the waters edge. Warrenpoint, as a coastal club has agreed to be an ambassador club for this campaign and we organised a very successful ‘Warrenpoint Summer Splash ‘ program for teenagers which finished today with the RNLI themed ‘Respect the Water’ float. 

 

There was a great turn out of young members in club gear on the lorry and the RNLI boat followed the float. Sincere thanks to everyone who made the program such a success this week, Laura Jackson from the RNLI, the NI fire and rescue water division team, the Kilkeel RNLI station for hosting a visit and to Carie Crawford youth leader from the education authority for facilitating the course so brilliantly. And a huge thanks to the 17 boys and girls who participated in the week’s activities and in today’s float. Well done everyone.
