Congratulations to Jimmy and Claire Knowles who recently gave birth to their first
child Oisin Knowles.
Although Jimmy has been with the club for about 8 years, the most useful thing he
has ever done was to father one of the next generation of St. Colmcille players.
Players and supporters of St. Colmcilles are glad to hear that Mother and Baby are
doing well, and we sincerely hope young Oisin will make a better footballer than his
Paul and Lydia Foley
On Friday 20th August St. Colmcilles celebrated the marriage of Paul and Lydia
Paul, as well as been Gloucester County Secretary, has been a Colmcille clubman
for over 9 years. Although virtually retired from the football field Paul still makes an
enormous contribution to the club.
Lydia and Paul tied the knot in their local Church at Bassaleg in Newport before
going to Saint Perrier for the reception.
Colmcille players and WAG’s were there in force to ensure the happy couple had a
day to remember.
All players, committee members and supporters of St. Colmcilles Cardiff wish Paul
and Lydia and the very best for the future.
Shane and Charlotte
We would like to congratulate Shane Galvin on finally getting up the courage to
propose to Charlotte. The couple have been together now for about 5 years and at
long last Shane has done the decent thing.
Shane popped the question whilst on holiday in Dubai, so all the WAG’s are looking
forward to seeing the ring on their return, while the players are keen to welcome
Shane back onto the football field to tighten him up before the Championship starts.
Tour De Wales
This summer Alan Rowley and Marty Dolan took to their bikes in aid of Charity.
The pair cycled from Holyhead to Cardiff, passing over the mountain ranges of
Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons.
The boys cycled an average of 50 miles a day for 5 days in a row in aid of Bobath
Children’s Therapy Centre in Cardiff. The centre provides specialised therapy for
kids with cerebral palsy.
Marty and Alan raised almost £3,500 – and a good proportion of this was contributed
by players, WAG’s, Committee members, Sponsors and supporters of St. Colmcilles
Gaelic Football Club.
