UNDER 19 FOOTBALL:
No joy for the U19 Footballers last Friday night, as they were defeated by De La Salle in the semi-finals of the Whites’ Bar Eastern Championship in Carriganore.
The lads fought hard throughout the game, but some crucial errors, including missing a penalty in the first-half, proved vital as De La Salle scored two goals that paved their way for victory. Credit to the players as they kept going to the whistle and scored the last couple of points on the night.
UNDER 17 FOOTBALL:
The U17 Footballers will play St. Saviour’s this coming Thursday night March 21st at 7:30pm in Carriganore in the JJ Kavanagh & Sons sponsored competition. This is effectively a knockout match, with the winners progressing to the quarter-finals, so your support will be crucial on the night. Best of luck lads.
JUVENILE GAELIC GAMES ACADEMY:
The club’s Nursery Programme continues each and every Saturday morning from 10am to 11am in the GAA grounds for boys and girls aged between 5 and 6 years old. The nursery programme teaches children the basic movements and skills required to play Gaelic games including agility, balance, coordination, running, jumping, throwing, kicking, striking and catching. All equipment, hurleys and helmets will be supplied.
The 2019 Déise Draw will start on Wednesday, April 24th. It will be the same format as last year, with six monthly draws at €15 per month, with first prize been €12,500; 2nd prize of €2,500, 3rd prize of €1,000; all the way down to prize number twenty (€150). Also, there will be special bonus draws of a Harvey Travel voucher & Super-Valu vouchers to be won.
This is the club’s main source of income, with 70% of the sale of the ticket been retained by the club, which goes towards paying for day-to-day operations. So we would encourage everyone to support the Déise Draw.
