Carrick Swan GAA Notes – Monday 23rd January 2012



The numbers drawn in last week’s juvenile lotto were 7, 10, 17 & 19. We had no winner of our jackpot prize and seventeen players matched 3 numbers to win €20 each. 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 €3,000 and your participation in our weekly draw finances the many activities and facilities for our juvenile players.


Registration night for adult and juvenile players, and all members, will take place in old club rooms on Friday night next 27thJanuary from 7.00 pm to 8.00 p.m.  Membership fees will be collected - €20 adult, €10 minor and €5 juvenile and we would appreciate payment this week. Payment can also be made to any committee member or team mentor at any time.


All players are requested to attend all organised training sessions now taking place. Full programme of indoor activities for juveniles is being prepared at present and all players will soon be notified. We look forward to seeing all our players back in action and welcome new players at all times. We also welcome the help and participation of new mentors each year and with ever increasing demands placed upon the small number of people actively involved more help is always appreciated.


Cards for our annual Aintree Grand National sweep will be distributed to business premises in Carrick and surrounding areas this week and we thank you in advance for your support. Those interested in the club’s wellbeing are asked to promote where possible.


Juvenile disco is scheduled to take place next week and notices will be posted in advance. We look forward to seeing all our regulars and their friends at this strictly supervised event.


Club stalwart Martin Henzey is recovering in St.Bridgets Hospital after recent surgery in Cork. We hope Martin’s recovery will progress quickly and we look forward to seeing him out and about again soon.


The use of The Green by local and visiting school teams is most welcome and our club is pleased to help and facilitate the schools at all times in their promotion of sporting activities. The increased use of the green by those walking their dogs and failing to clean up afterwards is to say the least most disappointing. The health and safety risk that this poses to young boys and girls is very worrying and the schools and our club ask the individuals and families concerned to refrain from this activity.
