Carrick Davin Club to begin building sports hall

Carrick Davin GAA club’s juvenile lotto jackpot of €13,000 was won and the prize money is being shared among 17 lucky individuals.

The Club thanks all members of the public for their support with the lotto fund-raising and can confirm that the €230,000 all-weather pitch and hurling walls have been paid for in full.

The Club will commence development of its new indoor sports hall, dressing rooms and shower facilities within the next year.

It cost in excess €270,000 to build the hall and planning permission has been sanctioned .

Last week’s lotto jackpot prize wasn’t won in the draw and there wasn’t any match three winners either. In view of this, a draw was made for eight €25 prizes.

Numbers drawn were 15,19, 22, 24.

The U-21 team, who have joined up with Ballyneale/Grangemockler GAA Club members, played their first football match against Windgap last Sunday morning in Ballyneale.

There was a great turnout from both clubs for the game. The Davin Club wishes them and their mentors the best of luck for the up coming season.

The U-21s train every Thursday from 7pm to 8pm on the all-weather pitch.

Training for U-16s and minor players has also commenced. All players wishing to be on this panel should attend training at the all weather pitch on Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm.

Juvenile training will begin soon. All club members are requested to bring their children down to the club for training.

Children aged five years old and upwards including children, who have never played before are welcome.

Training times and dates for all the age groups will be published shortly.

The Club is taking names for the Easter singles snooker handicap competition.

Closing date for entries is next Monday, February 4. Players are warned to register early as only the first 64 entrants will be accepted.

The entry fee is only €5 for members and €25 for non-members.

The €25 fee includes club membership for 2013.

The Club congratulate its senior hurling manager Nico Butler and his partner Tina as their daughter Nicola has given birth to a beautiful baby boy.

Congratulations also goes to Kurtis Walsh, who has made the final panel for the Tipperary Minor Football team.

The Davin Club extends it sympathies to the Cashin family, New Line Road on the death of Ann Cashin (née Farrell) formerly of Fethard. May she rest in peace.
