Ferrybank GAA - Weekly Notes

Our Under 8 hurlers took part in their second hurling blitz which took place in Ballygunner last Saturday morning. The team played Ballygunner, De La Salle, Mount Sion, and despite been defeated in two of the games, and winning one game, the lads defended well, and the forwards got some excellent scores in all three matches.
TEAM: Jacob Richards, Rory Simpson, Jack Hoban, Evan Mullally, Daniel Roche, Harry Suton, Morgan Fitzgerald Flood.

It’s that time of the year again, where I’m sure your house could do with a spring clean. So if you have any unwanted clothes, paired shoes, belts, handbags, curtains, towels, soft toys etc., or any old mobile phones or laptops (please keep mobile phones and laptops separate from clothing items), you can drop them down to the GAA grounds on Saturday mornings from 10am to 2pm. The closing date will be Saturday April 2nd.

The annual Angela Burns Memorial 10K Fun Run/Walk will take place on Sunday April 24th at 11am starting from the Ferrybank GAA grounds. This is a hugely popular event, and with the evenings getting a brighter, now is the time to get out and about to prepare yourself for the day. Ferrybank Road Runners meet in the GAA field every Tuesday & Thursday night at 7pm, and everyone is most welcome to come along and enjoy a leisurely run out.

The Under 13 Footballers make the trip to Fews next Sunday morning with a match against John Mitchells at 11am.

Hard luck to our Under 14 Footballers who were defeated by De La Salle in Gracedieu last Sunday morning.
