Cahir Gaa Notes
REMEMBERING OUR LOVED ONESDon't forget our club will hold a mass to remember all our deceased members and friends of our club over the years; we would like to invite everybody including The Cahir Slashers, the Wild Rovers era and up to the presented day members, friends, supporters and anybody connected with the club to be with us on this special evening, this special mass will be held on Saturday 12th of November at 7-30pm, with some light refreshments and hopefully some great chat afterwards in the club rooms, we hope to see as many of you as we can on the night.U21'S bow outOn Saturday last our U21 hurlers played their second game of the championship in Ballylooby V Ballybacon/Grange; our young men took the lead as they went to the break 0-06 to 0-04, the second half saw our opponents open up a lead that Cahir could not claw back, and for the second week in row lost the game, unfortunately results in other games did not favour us so sadly it's the end of the road for our U21 hurling team for 2016, we must thank all the players and management for their commitment to the club throughout the year and we hope we can do it all over again next season , The team and scorers were as follows: Dylan Walsh, Keelan Looby, James Walsh, Patrick Meehan, Brendan Donaghy, Conor Cashman, Ryan O'Donnell, Aaron Murphy (0-5), Mikey O'Connor (1-1), Brian McKenna, Niall McKenna (0-2), Darragh Howard, Eanna Heffernan, Ian Flannery (0-1), Conor O'Brien.
