Thought the younger members of the club might be interested to know that today January 21st is the Feast Day of our club's Patron Saint. Here is her story.
St. Agnes G.A.C.
                                                                                      












Feastday: January 21st
Patron of the Children of Mary
Born:
28th January c.291.              Died: c. 304
St. Agnes was a member of the Roman nobility, raised in a Christian family, who was only thirteen years old when she suffered martyrdom for her Faith. Her love for the Lord was very great and she hated sin even more than death! Since she was very beautiful, many young men wished to marry Agnes, but she would always say, "Jesus Christ is my only love."
Procop, the Governor's son, became very angry when she refused him. He had tried to win her for his wife with rich gifts and promises, but the beautiful young girl kept saying, "I am already promised to the Lord. In great anger, Procop accused her of being a Christian and brought her to his father, the Governor.
The Governor promised Agnes wonderful gifts if she would only deny God, but Agnes refused. He tried to change her mind by putting her in chains, but her lovely face shone with joy. Next he sent her to a place of sin, but an Angel protected her. At last, he condemned to death. Even the pagans cried to see such a young and beautiful girl going to death. Yet, Agnes was as happy as a bride on her wedding day. She did not pay attention to those who begged her to save herself. "I would offend my God," she said, "if I were to try to please you. He chose me first." Then she prayed and bowed her head for the death-stroke of the sword.

An interesting custom is observed on her feast day. Two lambs are brought from the Trappist abbey of Tre Fontane in Rome to the Pope to be blessed. On Holy Thursday they are shorn, and from the wool is woven the pallium which the Pope gives to a newly consecrated metropolitan archbishop as a sign of his jurisdiction and his union with the Pope.
            
Happy Feast Day to all our members.

I would like to thank all our friends at Naomh Una GLG for a wonderful and truly fitting evening in remembering our friend Michael McLean on Thursday night. Especially Frank Caldwell and Roy McLarnon for all the hard work they put in behind the scenes.  The game was a great exhibition of football considering the tricky conditions. Special mention should go to all who participated and those who braved the cold to come along to remember Michael. I would also like to thank Larry and Marie McLean and family, what truly wonderful people they are. Such lovely people, it is no wonder Michael was such a complete individual with a family like the McLean's. I would also like to thank Conor McLean for the 2 great points he scored for us in the second half, I hope he replicates the same form for Naomh Una in 2012.

Name: St Stephen's Day
27/12/2011
The annual St Stephen's Day challenge was played in windy but mild enough conditions at Pairc Naomh Una. In a very low scoring first half two points by Eamon Mc Cann and Brendan Grieve, with a solitary reply by Conor Compston, gave the elder statesmen a narrow 1point advantage at half time.
A fine point, early in the second half, by returning county hurling panellist Kevin Grieve, levelled the scores. However another point by Eamon Mc Cann and the one and only Joe (ball for me, one for the rest) Compston gave the vets a 4pts to 2pts lead. Minor, Colin Mallon then shot low to the corner of the net to give the 'young ones' the lead for the first time. Further scores from big Fred (0-1), a goal from Declan Mc Larnon and a point from minor, Cormac Flannery, with a single point reply from Martin Murphy with the goal at his mercy, sealed the game for the future stars. A last minute goal from Conor Compston put the icing on the Christmas cake to give a somewhat flattering look to the final score 3-4 to 0-5.
Overall this game (19-a-side) was played in a fine competitive, enthusiastic spirit ably controlled by the referee who let the game flow where possible.
Roll on St Stephen's Day 2012.
Footnote: This magnificent turnout was conspicuous by the absence of one "Scuba Steve". Too much turkey?......
Scorers: Under 30's (Black and Whites) C Compston 1-1, C Malon 1-0, D Mc Larnon 1-0, N Gillespie 0-1, K Grieve 0-1, C Flannery0-1.
Over30's (Sky Blues) E Mc Cann 0-2, B Grieve 0-1, J Compston 0-1, M Murphy 0-1.
