KILLURNEY SPORTS & SOCIAL CLUB
At our April meeting it was decided to hold our postponed Family Forest Ramble on Sunday, May 26, at 3pm. Keep that date free and let all the family join us to explore the forests on our doorstep. Our Harvest Fare will take place on September 15. Now that the weather has improved it’s time to get planting. We will have a special category in the children’s class this year for First Time Growers. So sow the seeds now to reap the rewards later! Membership is now due and it would be appreciated if it could be paid as soon as is convenient. The Hall is available for renting at a reasonable cost. Contact Gerard Marshall for info. Walks continue on Wednesdays, 7pm from the Hall.
The Senior Football team opened their season with a draw against JK Brackens in Boherlahan. The Minor Footballers are in action again this Wednesday evening against Moyle Rovers in Ned Hall Park at 6.45pm.
The New County Draw will begin next month and our promoters will be on their rounds shortly. This is a vital source of income to cover the day to day running of the club. We thank all of you who have supported us in the past and hope that you will be able to continue to do so. Of course new members would be very welcome. There are excellent prizes on offer with cars, holidays and valuable cash prizes.
We congratulate Paul Maher and Eoin Kehoe for their part in Tipperary Minor footballer’s victory over Clare.
The U16s have won all three games to date while the U14s had mixed fortunes with a win over Commercials but suffered defeat to St Patrick’s. The U12s drew against Clonmel Og, lost to Grangemockler and won against Clerihan.
Information received from LIT about the first ever LIT Residential Summer Hurling School which will take place from July 23 to 26. This school is available to all hurlers between the ages of 14 and 18.Check website for further details.
Only a few places left for September 2013 - please contact Clare or pop into the GAA Centre for your child’s enrolment form. A big thank you to everyone who supported our Easter Raffle and well done to Shane Madigan who won the beautiful Easter hamper. We would also like to wish Chloe and her family all the best with their move to Australia. All the children were sad to see Chloe finish up last Friday.
Sincere sympathy to Bernie, Tara and Shannon Power and all relatives of Terry, who so sadly was called from this life last week at such an early age. Terry, a deeply rooted family person, was one of God’s gifts on planet earth. He was such a positive, bubbly person whose main priority in life was to cheer you up no matter what ailed you and to make you feel better once you had the pleasure of meeting with him. Terry’s passing after such a short illness leaves a huge void in our community but most of all in the hearts of his immediate family. The prayers and thoughts of the entire community and much further afield are with Terry’s family at this sad time.
