Cahir GAA draw the Joker was held this week for the Shaun Fogarty fund and the Club are delighted to report that a sum of ?2,500 was raised and donated to the fund on Sunday night. The Club would like to thank Tom and Marie Carroll of the Hill Bar who hosted the event and all who turned up on the night. We were delighted to have our own former player and current rugby star Tommy O?Donnell to do the honours and draw the tickets. A presentation was made to Tommy on the night. We are all so proud of Tommy who received his first Irish cap against Canada this year.
The Club would like thank all the people who sold tickets and donated prizes for the raffle and made the fundraiser such a success. The joker was not turned, so next weeks draw in Morrissey?s bar has a jackpot of ?5,800. There are just 33 cards remaining on the board so the chances of winning increase each week. Our thanks are due also to all who turned up for a very successful comedy night in Cahir House on Friday last and all who donated spot prizes and helped in any way.
Congratulations to Cahir Camogie minor girls who qualified for the County final. What a wonderful achievement in an ?A? competition for such a young club. Our under 21 hurlers will be in action soon.
Cahir Camogie Minors qualify for County Final
Cahir qualified for the Minor "A" camogie final by beating Burgess Duharra on Saturday in the Ragg. From the throw in Cahir oozed confidence with Roisin Howard scoring 3 points from play, to Burgess' one from Tara Kennedy. While Burgess was mainly dependent on Kennedy for their scores, Cahir eased ahead with points from Sinead Kennedy, Ashling Moloney and Caoimhe Condon. A goal by Roisin Howard separated the teams at the break, 1.08 to 0.08. With Ashling Moloney and Lorna McEinry dominating midfield Cahir pushed on in the second half with further points from the forwards and a great individual goal from Moloney. Aoife Corcoran curtailed danger woman Tara Kennedy to great effect and with Caral Casey surging forward at every opportunity there was no way back for Burgess. Roisin Finnane, Eileen Flannery and Clara O'Donnell also did well for Cahir. Final score Cahir 2.14 Burgess 0.11.
Note; The final is fixed for Sunday 24th November at 2pm against our great rivals Drom & Inch
