Seller: Kathleen McNally

2nd - Joe Haughian - Meadowlands, Warrenpoint (£50)

Seller: Patsy/Sarah Tinnelly

Summer Camp Registration!

St Bronagh's GAA Summer Camp Registration Evening

Wednesday 30th July at Pettit Park Hall 6-7pm

Price: £30 Child 1, £25 Child 2, £20 Child 3

ALL who wish for their child(ren) to be registered for the Camp are invited to the registration/info evening. 

Payment to be made on the night - although we will be accepting payment on the first morning of camp.

Don't forget about the Family Fun Day on the Saturday with a big BBQ and lots of activities for the kids!!


Rostrevor's senior footballers were made to rue a disappointing first half performance as Castlewellan tightened their hold on third place with a league win at St. Malachy's Park. The Reds were at their best in the closing stages, but were unable to compose a serious threat to the hosts, as they had built up a strong lead by that stage. Click here for more.

Ultimate Rostrevor XV

So with exactly 100 players being nominated for the Rostrevor Ultimate XV we have totted them up to produce the team below. The most picked player was Jarlath Austin, with Jarlath Farrell following closely behind. Austy was also the overwhelming choice for Captain! Notable mentions to Chris McCartan, Mark Rowland, Dermot Mackin and Caolan Mooney who just missed out on the team. Thanks to all who contributed - obviously some of the players from older generations didn't get as many votes as needed to make the top 15 but the nominations did range from 1940s right up to the present day!

Cúl Camp 2014

The Cúl Camp came to an end on Friday, a great week was had by all - there are a selection of photos from the camp below!
