Club Notes - 2014/05/13

Huge credit is due to our minor camogie girls who showed great character in coming from five points down to win the premier final against Rathnure in Wexford Park on Wednesday May 7th. This was our first title at the grade since 2009 and we firmly believe that these girls are well capable of now stepping up to intermediate and senior grades.  


Best of luck to our under 16s who play St. Ibars in their last championship game before exams on Wednesday 14th in Piercestown at 7pm. Under 12 camogie first team are at home tonight at 7pm to Rathnure and second u12 team are at home to Marshalstown on Friday at 6.30. The under 10 girls travelled to St Anne's on Bank Holiday Monday for their last blitz before the mini league begins and we’ve all seen a really noticeable improvement in these girls.


Our intermediate camogie team had a great win against St. Ibar’s on Sunday 11th on a 0-8 to 0-4 scoreline. Having been level at half time the girls had to dig deep and really upped their work rate in the second half to get their second league victory of the season. The next senior camogie league game is on Monday May 19th, away to Glynn-Barntown.


Our novel fundraiser, the St. Martin’s pop-up boutique, is fast approaching so mark Saturday May 24th at 7pm into your diaries. This evening of retail therapy, hair and make-up tips should be great fun. Items can be donated in good condition, cleaned and ready to sell, on Thursday May 15th in the Club between 6 – 9pm. Contact Avril at 087.1325610 for more details on collection or if you have any items and can't make it down on Thursday. 


After the disappointment of close run defeat to Rathnure by 2-11 to 1-13 on Sunday our senior hurlers must dust themselves done for their next championship game, against Oulart, in Wexford Park on Friday 16th May at 7pm.


Our under 14 hurlers played Glynn Barntown in a very competitive game with some great scores from both teams. Glynn won  by 3 points but our lads put in a great performance against a big team. The juveniles played in the Vincent Morrissey Memorial Tournament in James Stephens in Kilkenny on Saturday May 10th and did brilliantly well to win the Shield competition. In their first match they lost to De la Salle of Waterford after extra time but then went on to beat the development squads from Wicklow and Carlow.


Possibly the most exciting game of the season so far was the under 21 match in Pierecestown against Oulart-The Ballagh on bank holiday Monday. How we managed to score 27 points and not win is still a mystery but huge heart was shown by all the lads and a special mention must go to Harry O’Connor and Aaron Maddock who really stood out. We have no date yet for the reply but would recommend all adrenaline junkies should try to attend!


Finally, the Club Lotto now stands at €15,000 as there were no jackpot winners last week. The numbers drawn were 1, 2, 17 and 23. We had 1 Match 3 winner of €50, well done to Jimmy and Marian Furlong.
