Swan senior hurlers to test their form against Dublin county finalists

The Swan U-21 footballers drew in their match against Grangemockler/Davins in Kilsheelan.

The Swan U-21 footballers drew in their match against Grangemockler/Davins in Kilsheelan.

Injuries and county minor hurling commitments meant the Swan team were under strength for this game.

They could have snatched victory but for a lot of missed opportunities. Swan now need to beat Ballingary in their final group game to be certain of qualification for the semi-final of this competition.

The senior hurlers have their first outing of the year next Sunday when they take on last year’s Dublin county finalists Cuala in the Noel Kelly Senior Hurling Tournament, organised by St Mollerans GAA Club.

Throw-in is at 3pm in St Molleran’s Field, Carrickbeg.

The Club thanks St Molleran’s for inviting the Swans to compete in such a prestigious competition again this year.

All support is welcome.

Meanwhile, the senior hurlers are drawn against last year’s Tipperary county finalists Drom/Inch in their opening game of this year’s County League. Official confirmation of this match is currently awaited.

Carrick Swan GAA Club thanks St. Vincent de Paul, Kilkenny Senior Hurling Manager Brian Cody and all its juvenile players and mentors, who attended last Thursday’s Youth Mass in St Nicholas Church.

All Carrick Swan members present represented their club exceptionally well and are a credit to their parents and to the Club. 

Training for U-8 boys takes place each Tuesday from 7.15pm to 8.15pm in the Juvenile Hall. All players are requested to bring helmets and wear runners.

Carrick Swan GAA Club congratulates Brian Kearney on winning €200 in last week’s Tipp GAA draw.

Carrick Swan player Andrew ‘Amby’ Walsh hurled with his Australian club Michael Cusack’s of Perth recently in the Melbourne Sevens Hurling Tournament.

The Cusack’s crest also contains a Swan so it was inevitable that Amby would choose this Perth club. Cusack’s drew their first game and lost their second game in Melbourne meaning they didn’t advance out of their group.

Numbers drawn in last week’s Swan Juvenile Lotto draw were 13, 19, 20, 26.

The €5,750 jackpot prize wasn’t won. Four match three winners won €50 each.

Carrick Swan GAA Club thanks all those who continue to play the lotto and reminds those who might like to join that weekly entry costs €2.

This fee can be paid to any committee member, or to any lotto promoter, who will call to collect each week.

This week’s jackpot prize is €5,500.

Your continued support helps the Club provide for all its juvenile players and is very much appreciated.

Carrick Swan GAA Club extends its sympathy to the Healy family, Cregg Lawns and Ard Mhuire and to the Butler family on their recent family bereavements.
