Well done to Ciaran Lyng, Daithí Waters and Stephen Murphy on Wexford’s exciting win in Longford on Saturday. Ciarán, in particular, took a lot of the plaudits with his scoring exploits. The lads will be togging out next on Wednesday at 7.30pm in Piercestown against Faythe Harriers in the county hurling league.

On the camogie front, well done to our under 14s who, for the 6th year running, captured the premier county title. Captained by Siobhan Alouf, they turned in an impressive performance on Sunday morning against Bunclody in Oylegate and they are now looking forward to their Féile blitz day in Thurles on 21st June. In preparation for that they will play Raheny on Saturday at 11am. Our under 12 girls will also take on the same opponents at the same time. The under 8 camogie team took part in a County blitz on Saturday 7th in Marshalstown, beating Kilmore in their 1st game, drawing with Kilrush in game 2 and losing narrowly to Craanford in game 3 before beating Duffy Rovers in their final game. A full list of this great little team is on our website. Our intermediate camogie team played Gorey in their third league game coming away with a comfortable win; some of these girls will most certainly be playing senior championship this year if they continue their current rate of progress.

We will have plenty of other Dublin visitors to the Club on Saturday before the big game in Wexford Park. Our under 10 boys will take on Kilmacud Crokes, our juvenile boys are due to play Cuala and other matches are still being arranged. The Club will provide supervised car parking on Saturday in the Wexford Carpet Centre so members are encouraged to make use of this.

The Club is looking into the possibility of running a summer camp for under 14 and under 16 boys and girls players and we hope to publish details soon. We would also like to wish Donal Doyle, an under 14 camogie selector, a speedy recovery

Our minor boys recently ran a very successful GAA jerseys raffle. The winners are listed on the Club website and great credit is due to the players for selling so many lines. Next up on the minors’ fundraising efforts is a Car Wash in the Club on June 28th. The minor management would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to all those who have supported the lads so far.        

Hard luck to our under 14 boys who lost by 2pts to Oulart on Sunday.  It was a brave display in the wind with plenty of good displays, and this fine bunch of young men are due a win soon.

Finally, the Club pitches have been re-sanded this week so all our players should see the benefit of this investment in the weeks and months ahead.
