Drumragh are a grade 3 Gaelic Football Club in County Tyrone, and for the past three seasons have been battling for promotion since being relegated from grade 2 in 2000. Yet again, this season they have failed to gain that Intermediate Status that they have been battling for. Next season though they will get the much needed financial support from the a group of online bookies which in addition will provide and awesome betting bonus offers to the team’s supporters.
In Irish, Drumragh Sarsfields is translated as Droim Ratha Na Sarséil. Drumragh meaning ‘Ridge of a Fort’, Sarsfield being the surname of the leader of the Irish forces from 1688-92, Patrick Sarsfield, whom the club is named after. The parish of Drumragh in West Tyrone, is situated to the south-west of Omagh, including the town of Omagh as well as surrounding town lands such as Clanabogan and Tattyreagh.
The Sarsfields play their home games at St.Patricks park in Omagh. For many years, St.Pats Park has been what Drumragh have called ‘home’, although this is all soon to change. The current club committee have embarked on huge fundraising activities in order to raise the finance needed to develop sporting facilities on a 16 acre site recently purchased in Clanabogan on the outskirts of Omagh.
There is an air of optimism among Drumragh supporters at present as the Sarsfields strive to fully establish an identity and fulfil a long term objective of owning their own grounds

What is Gaelic Football
Gaelic Football is possibly likened to a cross between soccer and rugby, and is played almost only in Ireland, or Irish communities. It is one of many games administered by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). For anyone unfamiliar with the sport of Gaelic Football, there are a number of guides available online which explain the rules of the games in depth, from the official GAA website.
