Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 26th March 2017
Indoor astro turf
While the playing area is now complete, the club needs to raise €75000 to bring our indoor astro turf complex to completion (heating, electrics, toilets, dressing room, kitchen, meeting room etc.). In this regard, the club will require the generosity of the community: individuals, families and businesses, both at home and abroad. As previously advertised, you can sponsor a brick at €100, a block at €250 or a wall at €1500. The official launch of our fundraising efforts took place last weekend, and there will be a draw for cash prizes of €1000 and €500 for those who donate prior to the May Bank Holiday weekend. There will be teams in the various areas/townlands to contact to donate, and there will also be weekly collection points held around the parish to facilitate people who wish to donate. This week on Monday (March 27th) there will be a collection evening in Sheridan’s Bar Kilglass from 8pm to 10pm. You can also donate online at www.enniscronekilglassgaa.com under the Astro Turf link. Your support at this extraordinary time in the club’s history is greatly appreciated.
Our intermediate team got their year off to a winning start when they defeated Cloonacool 1-14 to 0-3 in the opening round of the Abbott Cup at Quigabar last Saturday evening. The lads led 1-7 to 0-2 at half time and secured the result in the second half. Best wishes to Jason Morrison who sustained a broken elbow after a nasty fall. The second round is due to take place next weekend versus Tourlestrane with a time, date and venue yet to be confirmed at the time of writing.
The Enniscrone/Kilglass-Easkey minor team get their league campaign up and running tomorrow evening (Monday) when they host Owenmore Gaels at 6.30pm in Quigabar. Good luck to the team and management for the coming year.
The U-16 boys host Tourlestrane in the second round of the league on Monday week (April 3rd) at 6.30pm.
Commiserations to our U-14 boys who were beaten by Shamrock Gaels in their first league game last Sunday morning. Their next outing is on April 7th away to Calry/St Joseph’s.
Our U-12s will get their league campaign underway on April 4th at home to St Patrick’s. Training continues this week.
Well done to Josh Ellis, Ciaran O’Dowd, Eoin Hallinan and the Sligo minor team on their third successive win in the Connacht Minor League against Leitrim last weekend. Josh played at corner back, while Ciaran was a second half sub. They host Mayo in round three next Saturday evening at 4pm in Markievicz Park before the Connacht U-21 final between Sligo and Galway at 6pm. Best of luck to both teams.
There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto draw. The jackpot for next Saturday’s draw is €6500. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
