This included Siobhan, Aisling and Iona Heffernan as our incoming secretaries, our outgoing treasurer Ann Heffernan will now be joined by Claire Smith, Lorraine Kennedy and Eileen Heffernan. Jane Myers will now be joining Roisin Oates in her role as PRO, and our current registrar Katrina Ryan will be assisted by Margaret Oates and Laura Boylan. Child Welfare Officer will be retained by Orla O' Neill. On the Fundraising committee will be Niamh Ahearne, Valerie O' Brien, Lydia Grant and Helen McEvoy. Ferrybank Camogie club would like to thank Shiner Ahearne for committing to his role as Chairperson for the coming year, and we wish everyone the best of luck in their roles for 2021.

CAMOGIE A.G.M.

This coming Wednesday night, February 17th, at 8pm will see the Ferrybank Camogie A.G.M. take place, via Zoom. If you wish to attend, please e-mail secretary.ferrybank.waterford@camogie.ie so that an invitation can be sent.

Everyone is more than welcome to attend, particularly players, parents, or any interested people who would like to get involved in any small capacity. The 2020 playing season was an excellent one for Ferrybank Camogie and let’s hope 2021 will be even better. We look forward to your presence this Wednesday night.

 

WATERFORD SENIOR CAMOGIE:

The Waterford Senior Camogie side, which includes our own Iona Heffernan, and John (Doxer) Burns as head coach, are asking everyone associated with the club to take part in a 5k run or walk, and donate €5 to the Camogie Senior team training fund for the playing season ahead.

Each person who donates, will be entered into a draw to win a training top, and a training session with the Senior Camogie team. All donations will be gratefully accepted. Donations can be given to the GoFundMe page, details of which can be found the Waterford Camogie social-media pages, or go to gofundme.com.

The girls themselves will be doing their virtual run to Croke Park on Saturday, February 27th as part of their fundraising campaign.

 

COVID RESTRICTIONS:

As you know, the Government extended the Level 5 restrictions until at least Easter, with that, no on-field activities will be permitted, which includes training or games. It is expected that the Government will publish an updated "Living with Covid" plan, and we expect that this will provide clarity on when clubs are likely to be allowed return to training and games in 2021. It should also provide clarity on when other off-field club activities may be permitted to resume. Thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding.

 

CLUB A.G.M.

Ferrybank GAA club held its online A.G.M. recently. For the coming season ahead, will see a number of new faces serving on the club’s committee. Declan O' Meara, Treasurer of the club, gave his final report at the meeting, ensuring another comprehensive summary on the club’s finances. Throughout those 50-plus years of service, Declan kept the finances in good order, even during tough times. On behalf of everyone at Ferrybank GAA club, we would sincerely like to thank Declan for his dedicated service and hard work in the Treasurers role, and indeed all the other roles served by Declan, including chairperson. Stepping into Declan's shoes will be Áine Morrissey. Noaise MacCathmhaoil will take over the role as Irish Officer, while Tommy Lane has joined the committee, and we would like to wish Áine, Naoise and Tommy every success in their new roles.

 

LAST MAN STANDING:

The club are running a Last Man Standing competition fundraiser, with the proceeds going towards the purchase of new goalposts.

The competition will start this coming Friday, February 19th. It’s based on the English Premiership fixtures, where you will select just one team to win their game at the weekend (there will be 10 games to select from). If your selection wins, you will go onto the following weekend and so on. However, if your selection only draws or is defeated, unfortunately you are out of the competition. Also, you can’t pick the same team more than once.

The winner’s prize is a nice €400, with the runner up receiving €100. Entries close this Friday, February 19th, at 5pm sharp. Entry fee is €20, so if you are interested in this event, please contact Thomas Lane (087-0528391), Sam Lawless, Cormac Heffernan or Mark O' Brien.

For those people who have already signed up, details on how to enter your team for this weekend will be posted on our social media pages during the week.

So, no doubt a bit of homework will be needed when selecting your team, and best of luck to everyone involved.

The clothing collection is continuing. If you have any of the following items, drop them down to the GAA grounds;

- Clothes

- Paired Shoes

- Belts

Please do NOT send down any DUVETS OR PILLOWS.

COUNTY DUTY:

It wasn't to be for the Waterford Senior hurlers last Sunday afternoon in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Final, as they were defeated by an excellent Limerick side.

The team gave it their all on the day, but Limerick proved too strong, to run out deserving winners. The club can be proud of Mark O' Brien and John Burns for playing their part with the Waterford hurlers throughout the campaign, giving us some great hurling along the way, and brightened up those dark evenings.

Even though it wasn't our day, no doubt, the team will have learned a lot, and will be back next year. Well done lads onwards and upwards for 2021.

Also, it was hard luck to Shane Oates and the Waterford Minor Footballers that were defeated by Limerick last Saturday afternoon in the Munster Football Championship. Shane lined out at corner back for the county, and no doubt it was a proud day for him and his family.

Best of luck to Neil O’Sullivan and the Waterford U20 hurlers against Tipperary tonight (Tuesday) in the Munster Championship.

 

DÉISE DRAW:

The final Déise Draw of 2020 will take place on Friday, December 18th. Hopefully we can have a few winners on the night, especially with Christmas around the corner. Thanks to all who have purchased tickets during the year.

While it’s been a year to forget, the Waterford hurlers have brightened up our weekends since October with some excellent displays, and have improved game by game, and will give it their all on the day. The very best of luck to all concerned, and make sure you bring a certain Liam McCarthy home on Sunday night. Déise abú!

COUNTY DUTY:

Hard luck to Iona Heffernan and the Waterford Senior Camogie team that bowed out of this year's All-Ireland Championship, last Saturday afternoon against Tipperary in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, following a close game

While, despite a brave effort, it was no joy for John Burns, Mark O' Brien and the Waterford Senior Hurling team that were defeated by Limerick in the Munster Final last Sunday afternoon in Thurles. Hopefully the team can make a winning return next weekend in the All-Ireland quarter finals.
