FR SHEEHY’S GAA CLUB
Intermediate Hurling - On Sunday evening we played our penultimate IHC game against St Mary’s. We lost on a scoreline of 2-19 to 2-13. It proved to be a lively first half in which we led for most until the concession of a goal just on the blow of half time. This was the killer score as we couldn’t reel in the deficit during the second period. Our lads were far from disgraced on the night and tried their best against a team who are reigning South Champions and their fast, youthful team will prove difficult opponents down the line. Our final game is against Cahir which is now effectively knock out.
Intermediate Football - We play Commercials in Ballylooby on Friday evening at 8pm. This is a must win game if we are to progress to the semi-final.
Anti Social Behaviour.
Early this year many locals donated money towards playing equipment, football and sliotars which was greatly appreciated. On Thursday evening last between 4.30pm and 7pm our Clubhouse was broken into and all this equipment was stolen by mindless thieves.
Furthermore there a continuation of anti social behaviour at weekends on our premises which will no longer be tolerated. Club members are outraged especially over the break in and any information would be appreciated and passed on to the Gardai.
