Minor League: St. Brigids played Rinn Gaels in the first round of the 13 a-side league on Saturday in Aughawillan.

Comhghairdeas: Congratulations to Gerard Mc Govern and Aileen Foster who got engaged on Valentine’s Day from all at Aughawillan GAA.
Comhbhrón: It was with sadness on Saturday that we learned of the death of Thomas Kelly, formally Drumarigna. Thomas was a player, club officer and lifelong supporter of Aughawillan GFC. He presided as club secretary from 1937 to 1943, played in the backs in numerous club finals and wore his colours with pride. One day short of his 99th birthday, Thomas, one of the “old” Aughawillan team closed off an era of football and community, that will always be remembered. Aughawillan GFC wish to extend their deepest sympathy to his family and loved ones. Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam.
Comhghairdeas: Congratulations to the Aughawillan Drama Troupe who staged a wonderful production this past week of “Mother Knows Best.” Don’t be disappointed if you were no able to see the play as it has been announced that due to demand the play will run for extra nights. Keep an eye on Aughawillan Drama Facebook page for dates to be announced.
