It’s been a busy busy week for the eagles club as they continue to go from strength to strength in all areas!!

Firstly a huge congratulations must go out to our youngest athlete Tiernan McShane as he came second in the sports personality of the year awards.

The club are so proud of you TIernan you represent everything we are all about. Congratulations buddy!

Also our coaches also go from strength to strength. Well done to Paul and Joanne Sweeney and Deborah McDermot as they completed the agility, balance and co-ordination course through sports NI last weekend.

This is another example of how eagles coaching strives to be the best and our coaches and volunteers are constantly enhancing their skills in order to bring top quality training sessions to our very special athletes. Well done everyone.

Training was also a very positive event this week up at the 3G pitch in Annagher. These grounds are ideal for our work and we are very grateful to the Fianna for the use.

The athletes trained really hard as did the volunteers and still everyone left with a smile on their face.

It’s the place to be on a Thursday night folks so if you want to get involved in all the excitement feel free to call up and see what we are all about.

Training continues this Thursday night in Annagher from 7pm till 9pm.

The eagles are still on the lookout for more athletes especially for their football team and any volunteers who would be interested in lending a helping hand.

It would certainly be worth your while!! Also date for the diaries is 27th march in Gervins bar, Coalisland for our bumper quiz night. Always great Craic.

There’s lots happening so if you want to be involved check out our fb page or contact any committee member for details.
