Annual Donal Powell Tournament Saturday 9th September 2017
The young man who this Tournament is named after tragically died at the early age of 27 back in March 1993. Donal is fondly remembered by Pearse Óg Gaels for his footballing ability and his warm personality. He was a prominent underage player, mostly starring at full forward, winning County Championship medals at all grades from Juvenile to Senior. At Minor level he really excelled with his goals winning many tight games.
Donal had a presence both on and off the field of play. His humour was infectious with his jesting lighting up many a changing room or keeping his teammates in mirth back in the old Social Club. The banter was always mighty when Donal was in your company where he could easily deflate any ego that was rising just that little bit too much!
Not only did Donal contribute to the Club through playing but he was also instrumental in setting up our Under 10 age group within it. He helped out also with other youth teams and indeed had just been appointed Under 14 Team Manager in the the weeks previous to his untimely death. It was for these reasons that the Club saw fit to establish an Under 10 competition in his memory and it is testament to his popularity that it has grew to it's present size.
So if you are fortunate to be at Pearse Óg Park and witness young Gaels giving their all and having great fun doing so, spare a thought for a young Gael no longer with us but whose spirit enthuses all that you see there.
7 Hills Blues Fest returns to Pearse Óg social club on Friday 11th August 8.30pm with the fantastic "Soundbites Blues Band" hailing from way back in the Monaghan Delta, the Soundbites are a four piece "Electric Blues Band" their passion for this music is obvious with their lively guitar and biting harmonica sound.
When Gerard Barton first registered as a member of Pearse Óg GFC in the late 1960’s, early 1970’s little did he know that his active involvement would stretch 5 decades and counting.
Along with his two brothers, Paul and Tony, Gerard first donned the Green and Gold in and around 1970 and there began a lifelong commitment to our club. He moved through the ranks from u-14 &16, minor, juvenile and then into Senior football. Gerard himself says he was lucky to play on teams that were laced with players of great skill, commitment and passion. Gerry Cullen, Seamie Campbell, Malachy & Noel Mc Sorley, Joe & Gerard Gordon and Eamonn Donaldson to name but a few. He was also privileged to play alongside Marty Oliver, whom he says was one of the best footballers he ever saw play for the Ógs. (until he left and played for the Harps)

Na Piarsaigh Óga Fundraiser for Craigavon Area Hostpital I.C.U
Attended by over a hundred members along with family and friends of Ronan Clarke in recognition of the life saving work carried out by the devoted staff in the unit. In attendance was Head Nurse of the Unit Cherith Douglas who was presented with a bouquet of flowers by Ronan after Cherith gave the members an incite into the workload she manages each day. She was delighted to meet Ronan again stating the nurses rarely meet their patients after they leave their care. All proceeds handed over will go to patient care and comforts.
Special guests on the night included Kieran McGeeney, Paul McGrane, John Toal, Kieran Hughes and Paul Duffy all Armagh team mates of Ronan's. Kieran McGeeney gave an impromptu speech on the close bond still strong within the Armagh Co team members and his delight at seeing Ronan back to full fitness.
