Carrick Swan Club’s Senior hurlers are now turning their focus on the county championship following their defeat to Killenaule in the South Final in Clonmel last Saturday.
It was a great game of hurling with both teams giving it their all. The Swans led for most of the second half but unfortunately lost by three points in the end after a late goal (see full match report in The Nationalist’s sport section).
The Swan hurlers enter the county championship at Round 4 and will play one of the Round 3 winners.
Meanwhile, the Club’s Minor hurlers’ next game is against will St Mary’s in Kilsheelan next Wednesday August 7 at 7.30pm.
The Club hopes that all its minor players attending their debs ball this week have a good night.
The U-16 team will play their first championship match against Ballingarry in Davin Park next Tuesday, August 6 at 7pm while the U-14s defeated Moyle Rovers on The Green last Thursday. The U-14s built up an early lead and never looked back. They play St Mary’s on The Green this Thursday at 7pm.
The Swan Club extends its sympathy to the O’Sullivan family, New Street and the Coady family, Ballyneale on their recent family bereavements.
Numbers drawn in last week’s Juvenile Lotto draw were 03, 04, 14, 16. The €3,500 jackpot prize wasn’t won but four match three winners won €50 each. The Club thanks all those who continue to play the lotto and remind those who might like to join that weekly entry is €2 and this can be paid to any committee member, or to any lotto promoters who will call to players to collect each week.
