Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 21th May 2017
We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of the local community and indeed beyond in our fundraising efforts for the new Indoor Astro Turf complex. After last week’s collection we are at €67400 and wish to thank all of those who have donated already for their fantastic generosity. We still require just under €10000 more to reach our target and anyone with sponsorship this week can hand it in at Hilltop Culleens between 8.30pm and 9.30pm on Monday evening (May 22nd). Congratulations to Chanelle Veterinary and Tommy and RohnaBattle who won the prizes of €1000 and €500 in our donor draw last Monday evening.
Our intermediate team collected an important two points in Division Three last Saturday evening courtesy of a 1-12 to 0-9 defeat of St Mary’s at Kent Park. Travelling with a heavily depleted squad, those given an opportunity put in a good shift with Aaron Duffy’s first half goal the difference between the sides at the break, 1-5 to 0-5. The lads did well to withstand St Mary’s increased pressure in the second half to end as six-point winners. They face Cloonacool at home next Sunday afternoon at 1pm in Quigabar – your support would be appreciated for this fixture.
Our U-16 boys play Coolaney/Mullinabreena on Thursday evening at 7pm in CloonacoolCommunity Park.
Our U-14s had a superb one-point win over Tubbercurry/Cloonacool last Friday evening, on a scoreline of 6-8 to 7-4 at Kilcoyne Park. The team showed tremendous resilience to come back from the concession of early goals to end as winners in a frantic finish. They have a play again on Monday evening, May 22nd, when they host St John’s from 7pm.
With our U-14s travelling to represent their club and county in Feile Peil na nOg in Co Cavan at the end of June, a fundraiser will take place on Sunday June 4th in the Diamond Coast Hotel with Declan Nerney. Tickets are available locally. Please support this as this talented outfit go to represent the parish on the national stage.
Commiserations to both Sligo teams on their losses to Mayo at McHale Park last Sunday afternoon. Eoin Hallinan lined out at centre half back for the U-17 side.
There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto jackpot. Next Saturday’s jackpot is €8100. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
