Progress in field at Duneske

Great progress has been made during the last week in making our field in Duneske safer for children to play in.

Great progress has been made during the last week in making our field in Duneske safer for children to play in.

The new fence, gates and access steps are nearly completed. The new poles and nets have been fitted behind the town goal, and this should prevent any footballs and hurling balls from going out onto the roadway.

The GAA field will be opened every day, and we hope that the many people who use our facilities will not be inconvenienced. We hope that the new fencing will eliminate any vandalism, and people with dogs will respect the fact that they should not be allowed to exercise and soil any area where children are playing. Cahir GAA would like to thank South Tipperary Co Council and CDA for their co-operation in completing the fencing and the access gates.

The Draw the Joker took place in the Punters Lounge on Sunday. The Jackpot was not won but the following won prizes: Margaret O’Donnell €100, Tommy Reidy and Liam Meehan €50 each. The house prize was won by Knolling McCarthy. Next week’s jackpot is €4,200, draw in Cahir House Hotel at 9.30pm Sunday.

Our minor hurlers made their exit from the Championship when defeated by Carrick Davins on Saturday last. A disallowed goal separated the sides at the end of a good hurling match. Team: Dylan Walsh, Keelan Looby, Oisin Moloney, Cormac Looby, James Walsh, Ryan O’Donnell, Darragh Howard, Niall McKenna (0-1), Ian Flannery (0-1), Ryan Murphy (1-3), Liam Casey (2-3), Mikey O’Connor, Stephen Duggan, Aaron Murphy (1-1), Conor Cashman. Subs used, Brian McKenna, Alan O’Connor, and Tommy Allen.

This is the last match of the minor campaign. The club would like to thank the minor management team for all their work and commitment during the year. Paul Lonergan did a great job as manager, assisted by John Cummins, Brian Murphy, Barry O’Brien, Tony Donaghy and Richie Quirke.
