Community Together We are currently living in unprecedented and uncertain times. It is at times like these that we as a club need to look out for the most vulnerable in our community. Social Distancing is being recommended by the HSE and regulatory authorities as one of the main ways to stop the spread of COVID-19. We realise the impact that this can have on many within our community and as a club would like to offer our support to those who need it most during this time. If you know of someone within our community who may need assistance with collecting medication, food or toiletries or might benefit from a chat by phone then please let us know. There may be people living away from the area who are concerned for those back home in the Emyvale locality so we will do our best to check in on your family and loved ones and look out for them at this time. Please message us on the Emyvale club Facebook or Twitter. Alternatively call Enda - 086 195 9386, Shane - 087 362 5523 or Siobhan 047 70656 and we will get back in touch. As a community we can help each other through this and support each other as best we can.

The Covid19 pandemic has brought grief and sadness to many homes but it has also made people more aware of the needs of others and the generosity of the public has been absolutely outstanding when one considers the amounts raised by the many and varied fund raising events organised during the past three months. It has also shown the ingenuity of people to come up with innovative and novel methods of attracting donations as was clearly demonstrated by the event organised by the Emyvale GAA team. On Saturday last, June 6th, the Emyvale GAA Men's Senior Team organised a unique Charity Relay Run. Forty three members of the Club, players and management, individually ran a minimum of 4k. Each runner ran to another member’s home and virtually handed on the baton and they covered a total of 229.1k - coming together while staying apart in a relay format. The first runner set off at 4.00am Irish time and the final runner was expected to finish about 11.00pm but some of the participants covered the distance in record time, which meant that the final runner arrived to the finish at 9.20pm. Three early runners were not in the locality but ran the distance - Gareth McQuaid ran 5k in Abu Dhabi, James Bellew ran 5k in Sydney and Killian McKenna ran his 5k in Galway but all the others ran in relay until the final runner, Daniel McMahon, finished his 5k at the club’s car park at Tully at 9.20pm. Those taking part were: Garreth McQuaid (5k in Abu Dhabi); James Bellew (5k in Sydney); Killian McKenna (5k in Galway); Ryan McAnespie (6.4k); Sean McMeel (4.7k); Karl McQuaid (5.3k); Emlyn McGee (4.7k); Mick Flannery (5.1k); Stephen Askin (6.1k); David Bellew (5.1k); Cameron Liddle (5k); Kyle Hughes (4.2k); Niall McKenna (5.8k); Conall McKenna (5.8k); James McKenna (4.7k); Johnny McCarron (7.2k); Aaron Loughran (5.5k); Shane McCarron (5.3k); Conor Forde(5.2k); Gerard McCaffrey (5.9k); Greg Devlin (4.6k); Ryan Treanor (4.5k); Conor McQuillan (5.1k); Ciaran Connolly (4.6k); Aaron Sherry (4.9k); Ryan Kelly (4.9k); Conor Mulligan (5.4k); Rory Sherry (5k); David McAlister (6k); Karl Gallagher (6k); Robbie McAlister (6k); Colm McKenna (4.7k); Pauric Duffy (6k); Ryan Murphy (6.4k); Eoghan Treanor (5.3k); Ben Ryan (6.3k); Alastair Stewart (5k); Gavin McKernan (6k); Colin Hughes (5.5k); Liam McKenna (5.3k); Paul McCarron (4.6k); Michael O'Brien (5k); and Daniel McMahon (5k), making a total distance of 229.1k. In all they covered the areas of Aughnacloy, Truagh, Emyvale, Glaslough, Scotstown, Monaghan Town and of course - Abu Dhabi, Australia and Galway! The event was organised to raise much needed funds for two very worthy causes; 1. Pieta House, which provides therapy free of charge for those in suicidal distress, people engaging in self-harm, or those who have been bereaved by suicide. 2. Blackwater Valley Community Centre, which provides essential services to older people and vulnerable adults in the North Monaghan Area including a home meal delivery service, a good morning call service and other essential needs of the area. The organisers were hoping to raise €3,000 but on Saturday evening the total had crossed the €10,000 mark. Donations will be accepted until Friday evening of this week, June 12th and all contributions will be greatly appreciated. Donations can be given to any of the runners or on line at: https://www.gofundme.com/f/ae9j8y-emyvale-gaa-charity-relay-run
