KILLURNEY SPORTS & SOCIAL CLUB
Thank you to all who supported our Easter Hamper Draw. We congratulate winner Deirdre Regan, Ballypatrick, and runner up Cecily Purcell. Our walkers continue with their travails in the woods on Wednesday evenings at 7pm from Killurney Hall and Sunday mornings at 10.40am from Kilcash.
On Wednesday, April 3, the weekly Progressive “25” game moves to a new location for a benefit night. Proceeds from this week’s game in Ballypatrick Sports Centre will be part of fundraising by local girl Elaine Kehoe who travels to Uganda later in the summer as a member of a school charity mission. Admission €10 with extra raffle prizes on the night which begins at 8.30pm.
The start of the planned juvenile coaching sessions was deferred and will now begin on Thursday, April 4. SPRING LEAGUE: The Adults League is now coming to a conclusion and any outstanding matches should be played without delay.
The Minor Football team had to give best to Ardfinnan in the first round of the championship but hopefully they will make amends this Wednesday evening in Clonmel when they play Cahir.
We played away to Aherlow in the fourth round of the Adult County League. The first half display showed all of the hard work in training is beginning to pay off but we were led at half time by 0-4 to 0-2. Aherlow opened the scoring with two unanswered points after the break but we clawed back the deficit to go 1-1 up with seven minutes remaining. Aherlow rallied and registered three goals to run out winners on a score line of 3-6 to 1-7.
The Score Prediction will be updated shortly on the website so you can keep in touch with how you are progressing.
It is great to see another Kilsheelan referee as Tadgh Lonergan has been the man in the middle in some juvenile games recently and has a busy schedule for the next few weeks. We wish him well.
Well done to David Power, Bill Maher and Adrian Mc Guire on reaching the U21 Munster Football Final where they will meet Cork on April 10.
