Alphalot Results for Monday the 11th of November were E H M S T with Colm Rafferty winning the Sellers Prize and a Match 4 Winner was Mick McCrystal. Next week’s jackpot now stands at £10000 so please have your letters in before 9pm on Monday the 18th. Imagine waking up next Tuesday after winning £10,000? That would be nice just before Christmas – it could be you! Don’t know where to buy a ticket? Don’t fret, call 07920517282 and we’ll inform a seller to call with you. We are currently on the lookout for a new Alphalot envelope sponsor, so if you would like your business advertised every week throughout the Parish, then please call 07920517282. Once again, we would like to thank everyone for their continued support of this very vital fundraiser.

Fundamentals is on tonight (Wednesday 13th) evening from 7 > 8 pm for P1, P2, P3 & P4, boys and girls in the Community Centre. All support & help from parents is much appreciated.

The U13 boys have now finished for the year. Thanks to all the parents who helped all year by driving them to games etc. Huge thanks also to the management team of Vinny Sherry, Paul Fearon and Liam Kelly for their hard work with these boys all season.


Winter training is ongoing for all 2020 eligible U16 and minor boys. Any player involved in the current U13 squad should not attend. Two trainings per week will be held going forward on Monday and Thursday evenings. Monday evening trainings will be held outside on the training field from 7pm-8.15pm. On Thursday evenings, circuit training will take place in the hall beginning on 7th November from 8pm-9pm. Please bring your own water bottle to both weekly sessions.

Our Senior Men travelled to Donaghmore on Sunday (10th) afternoon to face Kildress in the latest round of the Division 2/3 Playoffs. Our men showed all the desire and urgency in a close contest that hung in the balance right up to the 60th minute, when Liam Hughes kicked the winning point. Final score: Killeeshil 0-13 Kildress 1-9. Our promotion drive moves onto the next stage now when we play Newtownstewart or Cookstown in the final game. Well done to the team and management on this gutsy win. Scores on the day were Pascal Donaghy 0-7, Micheal O’Neill 0-2, Liam Hughes 0-1, Peter Scullion 0-1, Tómas Hoy 0-1 & Ciaran O’Neill 0-1. The lads are training again on Friday night at 7.30 pm as they prepare for the final playoff game. 

Thanks to the large number of people who came to the meeting about our new Youth Structures on Tuesday (12th) in the Community Centre. Kevin Hughes and Kevin Holland delivered an excellent presentation on how we can improve our youth structures going forward and if you missed the meeting and want to find out more about this exciting project, please contact one of them two men ASAP. We would like even more men/women to get involved because many hands make light work for all involved.   

Anybody who ordered a Cairde Cill Íseal jacket, but has not yet collected it, please be advised they can be collected next Monday 18th November at 9pm from the back room in the Community Centre.

We will hold our AGM on Sunday the 8th December at 7.30 pm in the Community Centre. Anyone interested in our club, please attend the AGM to discuss all things Killeeshil GAA and to plan ahead and look forward to the coming season.

Killeeshil GFC send our condolences to the Early family, Eskra on the recent death of Lawrence.
