The final ‘Pella’ session of the year took place this evening when the 2010 boys finished their latest block of this innovative format of Gaelic football. The boys saved their best for last as the games this evening were of the highest standard imaginable for young players learning new skills and more importantly, forging great friendships.
The 2009 and 2011 boys finished their blocks on Monday evening so we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the players - and their parents - for their huge commitment over the winter months. We’d also like to say a sincere thank you to Declan Leonard from Clonkill for his cooperation with all the teams.
As one initiative ends, another one begins with the launch of our ‘Monday Night Football’ programme which begins on Monday night under the dazzling lights of Lakepoint Park. This initiative involves girls from our u12 side along with boys from the u11 and u10 teams. It promises to be spectacular.
‘The beginning of greatness is to be different, and the beginning of failure is to be the same...’

The club extends its sympathies to the family and friends of the late Frank Farrell who passed away recently. Frank was at centre back on the St Lomans Hospital team that won the club’s first Westmeath Senior Football Championship in 1948. Originally from Newtownforbes Co Longford he was a talented and true sportsman who also wore the jerseys of his native Clonguish, Longford and Westmeath with pride and distinction. He used his size and physique to advantage allied to safe hands and an ability to kick with both feet making him a decided asset to any team.
Frank moved to England where he continued to play and won a Hertfortshire Championship with Erins Hope.
He later returned to Ireland and lived in Leixlip Co Kildare where he continued to follow the fortunes and favours of The Blues and was in regular attendance at various championship games.
Our sympathies to wife Anne (Nan) and sons Gerald, Francis, Phillip.
The club also wishes to extend its condolences to the Lambden family following the passing of Kevin Lambden - Austin Friar Street, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath
