  • Sligo GAA club Eastern Harps has announced today that all activities can now resume. Earlier this week, the club had temporarily suspended all activity as a precautionary measure, as a club member was awaiting the result of a Covid-19 test.

    Today, the club confirmed the test result was negative, and activities can now resume.

    Eastern Harps are due to face Shamrock Gaels in round 4 of the Sligo senior football championship this Saturday evening.  

  • Sligo are the first team that have been forced to give a walkover in the football championship, due to Covid-19.

    They've conceded their Connacht semi final on Saturday to Galway, after several members of their bubble tested positive for the virus.

    A statement from the Sligo county board last night says they have taken the "tough decision" to withdraw from this weekend's game, adding that the players and management are "hugely disappointed" at the unavailability of postponement.

    Galway now go straight through to the Connacht final on Sunday the 15th, where they will take on either Mayo or Roscommon.

    The Sligo County Board say that all affected by Covid-19 in the panel are following appropriate guidelines, and are doing well.

     

  • Sligo GAA county committee ratified the management teams for the county senior football and hurling teams last night.

     

    The football manager is Paul Taylor joined by a backroom team of John McPartland Jr. Joe Keane, Nigel Dineen, Sean Boyle and Damien Eames.

     

    The hurling manager is Daithí Hand joined by selectors and backroom team of Peter Galvin, John Doyle, Mark Rushe, Martin Feeney, Colm O’Meara, Aidan Ryan and Sean Flannery.

  • Sligo GAA County Board are delighted to mark the Golden Jubilee of Micheál Kearins achievement of being the National Gaelic Football leading Inter- County scorer in 1968 with 2 goals and 125 points, by unveiling a plaque in his honour in the foyer of the Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence, Scarden, on Friday 30th Nov 2018 at 7.00pm.

    In 1968 Micheál Kearins was the leading scorer and ace-marksman at Senior Inter- County football with a grand total of 2 goals -125 points which was a comfortable 31 points ahead of Down’s Sean O’Neill 12 goals – 64 points.  This was a tremendous accomplishment for a player from County Sligo who did not contest All-Ireland semi-finals or finals, and it showed the scoring ability, skill and fitness that Micheál Kearins brought to his game.

    Hopefully this well-deserved Micheál Kearins Plaque situated in the Sligo G.A.A.  Centre of Excellence, Scarden, will encourage and motivate young Sligo footballers to stand for a brief moment and reflect on the enormity of this tremendous achievement 50 years ago, and on the skill, commitment and desire it took to be the leading National Inter- County  football scorer.  It may be the catalyst to inspire a young Sligo footballer to reach for the stars and try to emulate and follow in the footsteps of the Great Sligo Legend that is Micheál Kearins.

    Summary of Micheál Kearins Gaelic Football achievements.

  • Sligo GAA officially unveiled its 2019 jersey and kit during a special launch event at AbbVie’s Manorhamilton Road facility in Sligo today.  The County Board recently told club delegates at its Annual County Convention that the company had agreed to extend its sponsorship of the county for a further three years.

    The biopharmaceutical company, which has two manufacturing plants near Sligo town, agreed an initial three year sponsorship deal with the county board in 2015. It saw the AbbVie logo appear on all Senior, U-20 and Junior football team jerseys, and this announcement will extend the partnership until the end of the 2021 season.

    AbbVie continues to be the only multinational pharmaceutical company in Ireland to sponsor an inter-county GAA team.

    Members of the Sligo senior squad, including Niall Murphy and Sean Carrabine, showcased the new strip at the company’s Manorhamilton Road facility. The striking white jersey continues to feature the AbbVie logo on the front and associated sponsor branding from IT Sligo on the back. It also sports black sleeves with red detailing, dark grey shadow hoops, a Sligo crest embossed on the lower back and the title of the WB Yeats play The Land of Heart’s Desire on the collar. It is the first time the county have worn white since the middle of the 2001 season.

    The jersey will make its first competitive appearance on Sunday 27th of January next when Sligo begin their Division 3 campaign against Carlow at Netwatch Cullen Park.
