Rangers Virtual Tour Of Ireland
On Wednesday, 24th February  we will launch the ‘Rangers Virtual Tour Of Ireland’ which will begin On Monday, 1st March and finish on Sunday, 4th April. This exciting endeavour for the young and not so young will see us all get off our couches, get motivated and get moving! Starting with out little Rangers, U7.5  right up to our senior squad, along with supporters, members and friends,  we want you all to get involved, as an individual, a family, a workplace team, whichever suits best but adhering to the current health guideline and restrictions. This  virtual adventure will see us visit every county in Ireland. As we ramble the high roads and low roads of each county, we will receive a céad míle fáilte  from a famous citizen of that county, they will encourage us to keep going and they will share some information about the County they call home. It is going to be an epic journey and we will be with you every step of the way, sharing videos, photos and we will post regular updates. There will also be spot prizes as we clock up the miles/kilometres/steps. We send our sincere thanks to Padraig and Raymond Watters, Londis and Circle K, Castleblaney for their generous sponsorship of this event.

Joseph O’Reilly, Cheshire, formerly Urker
During the week we heard the sad news that former player & committee member, loyal supporter and friend, Joseph O’Reilly had passed away. Joseph was the Son of the late, Joseph & Alice O’Reilly and was reared in Urker. He played for the Rangers in the fifties and was an active member of the club from a young age. Joseph’s role in the club in the early sixties was to book bands for the hall. He worked in Quinns, the Milestone and he played for their team alongside, Tom McKay. In the mid sixties, he married Pauline Hamill originally from Broomfield but her family had emigrated to Crewe. Pauline had family connections in Cross, Owenie McGeough who ran the local drapery shop was related to the Hamills’. When home on holidays from Crewe, Pauline met Joseph  at a dance in Blaney. They married in June 1965 and they set up home in Crewe. Joseph was a very successful  businessman and his business, Cornwallis Group, Paper and packaging company continues to thrive today.
Joseph never forgot his roots, always keeping up to date with what was going on at home, regular contact with his family  and supporting the black and amber, wether it be from afar or when he could get home to attend games, usually accompanying his life long friend, Bernard Nugent. The O’Reilly family have a long association with Crossmaglen Rangers.
We extended our deepest  sympathy  to Joseph’s Children, Kieran, Jarlath, Catherine, Joseph and Declan, Grandchildren, Maisie, Ben, Mollie & Gabriel, Brothers’ Paddy & Francis (Dick), Sisters’ Anne, Phyllis, Josephine & Kathleen.
(John, Tommy, Gerry and Desi pre-deceased)
