2015 Weekly Newsletter, no.28. 4thAugust.


Adult mens’ teams

Our senior footballers travelled to Taghmon on Friday night to take on St. James in round 3 of the Tom Doyle Supplies. On a cold and blustery evening, the lads ran out winners by 1-16 to 0-4 on a night in which they kicked their fair share of wides, which is something they will be looking to address before their next match. Round 4 of the football championship will be against Horeswood, again in Taghmon, this coming Friday night7 August at 8.30pm. There’s a special atmosphere to floodlit matches so we hope that a big crowd will travel to Taghmon to cheer on the team.


Coiste na nÓg

Our under 12 hurling teams had two excellent home wins last week against Monageer Boolavogue with the B team winning handily and the A team having to recover from a 1-point deficit after two-thirds of the match. The boys take on Shelmaliers tonight in Hollymount at 7pmand then, on Thursday, they travel to Killurin to play Glynn-Barntown in a rearranged fixture. The following Tuesday, 11 August, the boys will have the long trek to Gorey to take on Naomh Éanna in football. On Thursday 6 August, our under 14 “B” football team will travel in to Páirc Charman to take on Mary’s of Maudlintown in round 9 and the following week both under 14 teams will be in hurling action, away to Oulart and at home to St. Patrick’s.


The juvenile hurlers had an excellent 2-14 to 1-8 win last night away to Faythe Harriers, having been down by 1-7 to 0-2 at halftime into the teeth of a gale. In the second half, however, the wind advantage and the boys’ teamwork shone through for another good win. Our minor hurlers also had a great win last Wednesday away to Faythe Harriers by 0-22 to 1-7 and they seem to be cranking it up nicely now. They will host Taghmon-Camross tomorrow, Wednesday 5 August, at 7.30pm in round 7 of the premier hurling championship and then, tonight week, 11 August, they will host Taghmon again but this time in football.


Probably the key underage fixture of the week is tomorrow evening’s under 6 hurling which will take place in Piercestown at 6.30pm which, according to Pat Barrett, will see the only unbeaten team in the Club this year putting its proud record on the line!



Well done to Linda Bolger on her point-scoring contribution to the senior Wexford camogie team’s win over Dublin in the All-Ireland quarter-final on Monday in Carlow. The team will now play Galway in the semi-final on Saturday week, 15 August. A major fundraising event for the camogie club is the clothes collection which will be held this Saturday 8 August 2015 at St. Martins Centre. This is a great opportunity to de-clutter closers so anyone wishing to donate some items to the sale need only contact any member of the camogie committee.


Activity Camp

The St. Martin’s Teenage Activity Camp opened this morning and will run until Friday 7 August(10am to 2pm every day). We have a wide range of activities including athletics, camogie, football, hurling, rounders and tennis and the cost is only €30 per child. The camp is open to under 14s and up and club members are invited to bring friends from other GAA clubs along. Anyone wishing to jump aboard tomorrow, day 2, is asked to contact Maire at 087.6235064.

Club Lotto

Finally, the Club Lotto numbers drawn last Sunday 2 August were 7, 11, 18 and 25. We had 3 “match 3” winner, so well done to John Bridges, Scott & Esther Mernagh and to Marty Reynoldsy who get €50 each. There was no winner of the €15,000 jackpot so it rolls over to next week. At this stage, somebody is bound to win the big prize soon so sign up as quickly as you can!
