Carrick Davins Senior Hurling team are through to the South Championship Final after beating Killenaule by just two points in the semi-final in Monroe on Sunday last.

The final score was 0-14 to 1-09. (See match report in Nationalist Sport).

Great credit must go to the players, trainer and selectors for this great win.

From the goalkepper to the corner forward, everyone played as a team and when the odds went against them, they rallied together and held their nerve to come out on top.

This was a great team effiort but the team does make things hard on themselves.

It was a hard physical game from the throw-in.

The final between either the Swan or Mullinahone takes place in two weeks time.

Meanwhile, the junior team won their match in the league against Cahir two weeks ago. It is great that the Club can field a second adult team for the first time in years and have so many players both young and old available for selection.

The team have two matches to play in the league section. Hopefully, they can make the knockout stages of this championship as they now have four points from three matches.

Juveniles: The Club had mixed fourtunes at juvenile level over the past week. The U-14s beat Cahir but the U-16s were beaten by Mullinahone and the minors had a great win over Fr Sheehy’s.

The U-14 ladies football team made history when they became the first girls team from the Davin Club to play on the hollowed turf of Croke Park and went on to win their four matchs in the blitz.

They were the only team on the day to win all their matches.

All the team received a momento of the day, which they can treasure for years to come. The Davin Club thanks the team, their parents and mentors who travelled to Croke Park. Any young girl wishing to start playing football with the Davin Club can do so by attending training at Davin Park every Monday from 6pm to 7pm.

Some of the Davins girls caught the eye of the senior ladies, who where very impressed with their skills as the ladies football section in the Davins Club is only up and running a few months.

The U-16 football team, meanwhile, won the county football C final against Fr Sheehy’s. The Club thank all the boys and selectors for their effort in achieving this success.

The Club’s Cul Camp is on this week and it’s hoped too see some of the Tipperary Senior panel plus the Munster Cup in Davin Park during the summer camp.

Lotto:There wasn’t any winner of the past two lotto jackpot draws. In the latest draw, four people matched three numbers to win E50 each and the in the previous draw, one person matched three numbers to win E200. Next week’s jackpot prize will be E4500.

Sympathy: A vote of sympathy was passed to the Reid family of Ballylynch and Carrickbeg on the death of Paschal.
