As a result of the current recession Team Hope will not be operating the annual Christmas Shoebox Appeal in 2013. It is hoped that a different form of aid for children in foreign countries will be in operation.

Recalling October 1993
Wedding bells rang in St. Joseph’s Church, Aughavas for Pádraig Gaffney and Maura Mitchell. Drumreilly beat Gortletteragh and Kiltubrid and failed against Mohill, but a win over Dromahaire took them to a 2-10 to 2-6 victory over Kiltubrid on November 14th in the
U-16s Special League final. Aughawillan took both Senior League points in their game against Drumreilly. Work on the £23million Ballinamore-Ballyconnell project was almost complete. Renovation of St. Mary’s Church was well under way with roof timbers, felting and tiling nearing completion. The deaths took place of Carrickmakeegan-born Mrs. Molly Cochrane nee Maxwell, Dun Laoghaire, former Drumlea resident Brigid McAweeney nee McKeon, Danny McGoohan, Aughoo and Sranadarragh-born Michael Keegan U.S.A. RIP.
