Carrick Swan GAA Notes

Carrick Swan’s south senior hurling championship semi-final replay against Mullinahone will take place on Sunday next in Fethard at 3.30 p.m. We wish the team and their mentors the best of luck in their efforts to reach another south final where Davins await the winners.


Our juvenile teams have had a very busy week. The under 12’s travelled to Thurles for county go-games event on Friday evening where we defeated Golden in quarter final 1-04 to 0-04 and lost out to Moycarkey 2-04 to 1-04 in semi-final. They enjoyed a trip to McDonalds after the game, already looking forward to their south final fixture against Ballingarry, which will probably be played next week-end. Our under 14 hurlers played Douglas of Cork on The Green on Wednesday evening last where both teams served up a great game. This team plays Moyle Rovers in south final on Tuesday evening of this week – report next week. Our under 10 hurlers will play Ballygunner on The Green on Wednesday evening at 6.30 while our under 6 and under 8 teams played very enjoyable games against Clonea on Saturday last. Our under 16 hurlers played two competitive challenge games against Holycross and Raparees of Wexford during the week as they await result of  play-off to decide their opponents in south semi-final. Meanwhile our under 10 camogie team played in very enjoyable blitz in Monroe on Saturday last performing very well.  Carrick Swan club would like to thank all the other clubs who have facilitated us with games recently and also thank those who prepared and served refreshments for our visiting teams.
