Carrick Swan Minor, u21 and Senior player Dale O’Hanlon added to his 2013 medal haul last Thursday as he helped Carlow IT defeat UCC in the Fresher Hurling League Division 1 Final. Full Time Score: 2-14 to 1-16. Well done Dale.

The club AGM took place on Wednesday last in our clubrooms. Two new Officers came on board. Seamus Walsh replaced outgoing A.S.A.P. Officer, James Hogan while Ger Grace replaced outgoing Development Officer Davy Boland.

A Sub-Committee has formed within our club, with the sole task of locating people to fill the different selector/mentor/coaching roles for our various adult teams for 2014. This four man Sub-Committee is made up of Noel Russell, Willie Hahessy, Dick Lanigan and Colm O’Sullivan. 2013 has been a relatively successful year to date with our u21 hurlers looking to add more silverware over the coming weeks.

The Sub-Committee is currently contacting the selectors from 2013 teams. If anybody is interested in coaching, managing or mentoring any of our adult teams in 2014, that wasn’t involved in 2013, now is the time to speak up. Contact any of the four names above and we can have a chat with you, and try put you with a management team that you can work well with. If you are interested in helping out, at Juvenile level please contact Juvenile Secretary, James Hawkins.
