Carrick Swan GAA Notes – Monday 06thAugust 2012

Carrick Swan junior hurlers played Knockavilla in county league quarter final on Wednesday evening last and ran out convincing winners of a very entertaining game 3-20 to 2-13. This win qualified them for semi-final against Thurles Sarsfields, a game scheduled to be played on Tuesday evening of this week – report next week.  This team is scheduled to play Moyle Rovers in south championship game on Thursday evening 09thAugust in Goatenbridge. Carrick Swan minor hurlers will play Kilsheelan on Friday evening in Ned Hall Park at 7.30 p.m.


Carrick Swan under 14 hurlers played Kilsheelan on Thursday evening last and recorded a good win after a most competitive game. They play Moyle Rovers on Tuesday evening on the Green in final group game with place in knock-out stages already secured. Last week’s under 16 fixture against St.Patricks was postponed due to club bereavement. We play Ballingarry on Tuesday evening next in Davin Park. Carrick Swan hosted visiting under 10 teams from St.Patricks and Ballyneale/Grangemockler on the Green on Saturday morning where there was some very enjoyable hurling games played by all those participating.  


The numbers drawn in last week’s juvenile lotto were 9,10,11 & 21. We had no winner of our jackpot prize of €2,750 and four players matched three numbers to win €50 each.  Carrick Swan Club thanks 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

Members requiring tickets for Tipperary / Kilkenny All-Ireland hurling semi-final on Sunday 19thAugust must submit order to club secretary immediately. Members are reminded that club gear is for sale at most competitive prices. These items make ideal gifts and help the club’s profile on a continuous basis.


Carrick Swan’s recent family fun days on the Green were a tremendous success. Almost 200 children plus parents and family members took part and all had a most enjoyable time. Carrick Swan club sincerely thank the sponsors of this event – Super Valu, Value Centre, Fairgreen and Ann Waters. We also thank Michael Dunne, who again this year provided signage on the club, and James O’Neill for his photography. We thank the Athletic Club and Presentation school for use of their equipment and we also thank our own club personnel and team mentors and especially our ladies committee for their great work.


Carrick Swan club extends its sympathy to county board secretary Timmy Floyd and his family on the death of his mother last week.
