A massive thank you to everyone who organised the annual dinner dance last night, it was fantastic from start to finish with so many nice personal touches! Great year, great club!  
Loads of stand out moments in the night.
Huge crowd, huge success.

Proud of our great club and the people in it.
Name: Jack
are there any indoor activities planned for the hall this winter?
Yes, but we are getting the Dinner Dance over and then we will kick start a few things.
There already is handball at least twice a week.
Suggestions and volunteers to help run activities are welcome.
Name: Cant believe the year is over
The road was a long one,
from Armagh to Toome,
the radio was silent,
and my mood was gloom

So close we had been,
So near to the win,
Sorrowful was I,
No chance of a grin.

But the longer I thought,
And started to reminisce
I remembered the good times
When the football was bliss

We blazed to the lead,
Black and amber to roast,
With Magill to the forefront
and his best man, Close  

Jonny Jives was game,
And Mick took control,
Baby Enda was a whirl
with Pudgie a totem pole

The defence was solid
Justy deflected a hardened force
Marty refused to budge
With Tony hard and coarse

A rough first half end
Agin Cross’ Cavan pet
Made tougher again
When Murtagh hit the net

But they did not give up
Not once did they blink
We are still so proud
We roar them onto the brink

They were cheered off the pitch
Some vitriol to the Cavan cat
John Brennan not happy
With the vampire bat

But what a year it has been
Great success for our kin
And a desire to again improve
Our beloved Cargin

Name: Fan
Naming of the pitch could be an idea for a fundraiser
Yes. Or maybe some big money people might light to sponsor the name...Aviva, Kingspan...
Name: Re: Fan
was known originally just as Mc Cann's field after the man that used to own it. don't think an official renaming ever took place
Name: Wondering
Who's u16 manager this year?

On a crisp autumn morning,
I woke with great zeal,
For my beloved Cargin
Had two battles, tough as steel

To Armagh we must go,
the first for our girls,
Our support, we give them,
Their talent, in their hurls

We needn’t have worried,
As Katie drew first,
A wound that grew deeper,
As the Down girls lurched

Stronger and stronger,
Our Cailíní grew,
Until victory was sealed,
History made anew

With haste to Ahoghill,
Our men had to strive,
To reacquaint themselves again,
With the ultimate prize

Our defence held firm,
Big Pudgie up front,
Mick McCann fired the bullets
And the red hand was blunt

We waited for the whistle,
And screamed for the chime
Even in our comfort,
We wanted full time

To Toome we cried,
For theres time a-wastin,
A procession to honour,
Our fair lads and maidens

Our pride in our kin,
The joy in their faces,
So happy were we,
Toome street had no spaces

Paraded through the village,
Like the heros they are,
Adoration they get,
Shining bright, like a star

At last to the club,
Go the Green Machine,
We show them the joy
They’ve brought to Duneane

The noise they made,
All in good craic,
It Lasted til morn,
Til the eyelids were slack

They try their utmost on those pitches
Enacting our dreams,
We can only reciprocate
Our hopes, our gleams

So here’s to the camogs,
And the footballers we saw,
They were backed to the hilt
For we are in awe.

Such a night they will speak of,
Down through the years
For Cargin was united
Just in bliss, shed no tears
