Cahir GAA Notes


At the moment there are no fixtures to bring you, as we are not at the business end of things, we have to wait for our fixtures in our relegation battle in senior football, our first opponents in that are Drum and Inch, who we were down to play the weekend just gone, but as they are involved in the hurling championship that put an end to that, we are also still involved in junior B hurling and U21 hurling the latter did not start yet, we will do our best to bring all fixtures to you as soon as we can .

Ladies football

One fixture we can bring you is the county ladies senior football final, our Cahir ladies will play Brian Borus, in Sean Treacy Park in Tipperary Town on Saturday September 30th throw in 2pm, after both teams having players involved in the all-Ireland last Sunday (more on that next) it should be a cracker of a game, so if you can please come along and support our fine ladies team as they go in search of a Senior County Title for the first time in the history of Cahir Ladies Football Club, we want to wish all the players and management the very best of luck on Sunday.

All Ireland Intermediate Ladies Football Champions

A big, congratulations to the Tipperary ladies football team (pictured below) who were crowned All-Ireland champions on Sunday, especially our five players, Emma, Aisling, Aisling, Roisin and Rachel, what a result, and to make it more special our club lady Aisling McCarthy (pictured above) was named player of the match, and well deserved Aisling, enjoy the moment ladies these days don't come around very often, again well done to all players and management.

Draw the Joker

Last Sunday was a special night for our draw the joker game, we had a large crowd in Cahir House Hotel, as we donated all our profits from this draw to the Evan Hickey Fund, (pictured below is Evan with his father Joe)

We brought you Evan's story over the last couple of weeks and we want thank you all so much for helping us raise funds for Evan through our Joker draw, the Hickey family want to thank you all for your kind donations and words of comfort and support, the full amount raised for Evan will be known during the week as we did not have all the funds in as we publish this newsletter but we will let you know next week for sure, the prize winners from this week's draw are as follows: Kevin Butler, Lisa Halley, Cahir Steel, Mary Farrell and Peter Maher.

Blast from the Past

This week we take a quick look at the year 1967 half a century ago (where has the time gone), as this is 2017 we will keep with the sevens for now below we have two photos for you to remember and hopefully enjoy, Oh! Try and name as many as you can without reading the names, we hope the quality is ok, if anyone has any old photos and want to share them please contact us at the email address at the end of our letter thanks .

A message from Lorraine O Donnell

I am organising a fundraiser in aid of Marymount Hospice in Cork. For those of you unaware of what Marymount Hospice do as a service here is a little bit about them. Marymount Hospice provides care to patients with progressive illnesses, both cancer and non-cancer, at a time when pain or other symptom issues become too much. Patients on active treatment may benefit from a short term admission for symptom control and rehabilitation. Support is offered to families facing loss or who are bereaved.

Sadly, many of us know someone who has needed help from one form of a hospice service or another. Many of these services are run by voluntary work, donations and fund raisers etc. I chose Marymount Hospice because sadly my family have needed their help in the last 5 weeks. They have cared so well for my sister Kerry and are continuing to do so, for us as a family they have been fantastic. So caring and there is always a listening ear. Their facility is just so homely and welcoming (so much so my four year old daughter thought it was a "hotel just for people in wheelchairs!)" Please come along to Cahir House Hotel next Sunday the 1st of October from 2pm to 4pm and join us on the day for some tea or coffee, nibbles, entertainment and prosecco, to help raise much needed funds, for such a wonderful place.

Lorraine and Kerry are daughters of Gerry and Liz O Donnell; the O Donnell family are great supports of our club down through the years and we hope this fund raiser is a big success for them, please call to Cahir house next weekend and if you can spare a couple of bob for a great cause thank you.

The club would like to wish Kit and Denny Whelan a happy anniversary which occurs around this time, we won't mention numbers, but guys may you both have many more years together.
