Ferrybank GAA - Weekly Notes

Hard luck to the Junior Camogie team who were defeated by a much better De La Salle side in the final of the Premium Butcher sponsored competition in Walsh Park last Saturday afternoon. Following a tight first-half, De La Salle took over in the second-half and created the scoring chances which they took, and ran out deserving winners.
Despite this defeat, the girls can look back on an excellent season, and no doubt this young side will bounce back and come back stronger for 2016. A huge thanks to Paddy, Shiner and Nicky for the work they put in with the team, and to the girls for the commitment they gave during the year.

This coming Friday night October 30th sees the final Déise draw of 2015 taking place in Cappoquin and let’s hope we can sign off with a couple of winners on the night. On behalf of Ferrybank GAA club, we would like to thank everyone who purchased tickets throughout the year, and without your help we would struggle to keep the finances in order. It is our biggest fundraising event annually, and without your help, it would be impossible to keep the facilities in prime condition. Congratulations to Mark Carew who was the confined winner for September.

After a long wait, the Junior Footballers are in semi-final action this coming Wednesday night October 28th in Carraiganore where they play De La Salle at 8pm. When these sides met in the league campaign, there was only a point separating the sides, so another close encounter is on the cards. Your support will be crucial to the team. Best of luck to Heno and the boys.

The annual night at the dogs takes place once again on Saturday November 21st at 7:50pm. With 10 races on the night, there will be plenty thrills and spills of Greyhound racing.
