ABP sponsored Ferrybank GAA Weekly Notes

This coming Saturday September 30th at 3pm, will see the Ferrybank Intermediate Camogie team compete in the County final against An Rinn. This will be the girls’ biggest game in their careers, as they are one step away from the senior ranks.
So far this year, An Rinn have had the upper hand in previous matches, winning by a couple of points, so no doubt, another close game will be on the cards. The girls have put in a huge effort throughout the season, and let’s hope their hard work and dedication will pay off.
Please come along on the day and support the team, as it will be appreciated. Best of luck to Shiner, Paul and the squad. At the time of going to print, no confirmed venue has been decided, so please keep an eye out on the social media etc.

Ferrybank/Erin’s Own combined Minor team are in quarter final action this coming Saturday September 30th at 12:30pm in Kill against Brickey Rangers. This will be a tough test for the team, and your support will be welcomed on the day.

Ferrybank U11 Footballers are back in action this coming Friday night 29th September with a home game against St Saviours at 6pm.

Well done to the U10 hurlers who recorded a great win over Ballygunner last week.

Hard luck to the U14 hurlers who were defeated by Kilrossanty last Monday night in the County semi-final. The lads put in a huge effort, but soft goals conceded was ultimately their downfall. Despite clawing their way back into the game, Kilrossanty got the crucial scores when it mattered.

It’s hard to believe it folks, but it’s nearly that time of the year again, the annual dog night fundraiser will take place in Kilcohan Park on Saturday November 18th. Keep a note of it in your diary.
