Carrick Swan GAA Notes – Monday 30th January 2012



Carrick Swan club extends its deepest sympathy to the family of Johnny Sullivan who died last week. Johnny was a great supporter of our club and an ever-present in The Davin Park and on The Green for training sessions and matches alike. He will be sadly missed this year but we are sure he will be with us in spirit. We extend our sympathy to his wife, sons, daughters, grandchildren and extended family. May he rest in peace.


The numbers drawn in last week’s juvenile lotto were 5, 10, 22 & 25.  We had no winner of our jackpot prize and three players matched 3 numbers to win €70 each - Deborah Nolan Castle Heights, Florence Phelan Ballinurra and Johnny Hennessy Castle Park. We thank all those who continue to play our lotto and remind those who might like to join that weekly entry is €2 and this can be paid to any committee member, or to any of our lotto promoters who will call to collect each week. This week’s jackpot prize is €3,250.


Cards for our annual Aintree Grand National sweep have been distributed to business premises in Carrick and surrounding areas and we thank you in advance for your support. We encourage members to promote and support this very important fundraiser where they can.


We are presently finalising selection committees and team mentors for all our juvenile hurling, football and camogie teams. Catering for the number of under-age players which we have requires much work and we appeal to those who might have some spare time and an interest in Gaelic Games to come on board and help out. If interested please contact any committee member or team mentor.   


Juvenile disco for 8 – 13 year olds will take place on Friday night next from 8.00 p.m. – 10.30 p.m. All are invited to attend this strictly supervised event with spot prizes on door tickets. Admission €5.


Membership fees should be paid to club registrar Willie Hahessy or any committee member as soon as possible.
