Carrick Swan GAA Notes

Carrick Swan’s first team into championship action for 2011 saw our under-21 footballers line out against St.Pats on Saturday last. We enjoyed a clear-cut win in this first round championship fixture and will probably be in action again next week-end.

We remind all members, supporters and especially players that membership subscription must be paid immediately. The fee of €20 for adults, €10 for minors and €5 for juveniles can be paid to any committee member.

Carrick Swan under 14 hurlers commenced their activities for this year in Carrigeen astroturf tournament on Sunday last where they lined out against near neighbours Clonea.  All panel members performed well and we ran out convincing winners. We are provisionally fixed to play Killeagh from Cork on Saturday evening next. All players will receive notification when we receive fixture confirmation.

Last week’s lotto numbers were 3,5,21 & 22. We had no jackpot winner and three match 3 winners each receive €70 – Martin McNamara Marian Avenue, Jason Walsh Ormonde Crescent and Louise Ryan Oaklands. This week’s jackpot is €2,500 and we thank all those who continue to support our juvenile fundraising lotto. Weekly entry is €2 and you can join by contacting any committee member.

Juvenile disco will take place on Friday night next 18th February and we look forward to seeing all our regulars and their friends on the night. This strictly supervised event is a most enjoyable night for all the young boys and girls and all are welcome. We remind those supervising to be in attendance at 7.45 p.m. and all those who have helped out in the past are asked to attend.

Players and supporters are reminded that a large selection of Carrick Swan gear is available from stock and other items can be ordered at any time. Contact juvenile secretary for details.
