Cahir GAA Notes

Cahir Enterprise Town evening,

Last Friday a Cahir Enterprise Town expo was held in Cahir house hotel sponsored by B.O.I., all local groups took part by showing their wears and Cahir GAA with the Juvenile club took part, a good evening was had by all groups and gave us all a chance to see all the great groups and business in Cahir have to offer, in the photo above are (L to R) Tommy Barrett, Micheál Fahy, John Leahy (guest), Declan Browne (guest), Aisling McCarthy (guest), John O'Donoghue, Eddie Lonergan and Pat O' Brien, all behind our stand, unfortunately all our members could not be there as there was a concert in St. Marys church and we had to split our club in two as we also provided traffic control (led by Gerry O' Donnell) for that event we must thank all our members for all the work which went on that busy evening, again another success for us all, well done everybody. Below are a couple of more pictures from the evening.

Eddie Lonergan with two Kerry men Mícheál Ó Muricheartaigh and John O'Donoghue, (in his working gear) and the second photo sees our club officers with TD Mattie McGrath who also dropped by our stand for a chat, the third photo below sees club and county footballer Aisling McCarthy cutting the ribbon to open the expo with the above mentioned Mícheál and Donnacha Fahy of B. O. I.

As we are with Aisling we must say congratulations to Aisling and her club and county team mates on receiving yet another award this time the IPB Insurance County award at the Canon Hayes awards recently.

County Football Board

Congratulations to Barry O' Brien who was appointed the new Chairman of the county football board recently, Barry who is no stranger to county matters was (in his own words) delighted and looking forward to his new post, a good friend of our club, Barry was our hurling manager for the last couple of years and done a great job as with everything he does, from all in the club Barry, best of luck in your role, County football is in good hands.

Draw the Joker

Just a couple weeks left before the big man in the red suit comes down that chimney, we have to change a couple of dates for our draws which should take place on Sunday the 24th and Sunday the 31st over the holiday period, so to replace these dates the draw before Christmas will take place on Friday the 22nd in The Abbey Tavern and the next draw will be on the 29th in the Shamrock Lounge, thank you all for the great support and we hope you will continue with that support, last Sunday we were in the Punters Rest and here are the winners: Loretta Reidy, Micheal & Yvonne Fahy, Carol, Grainne and Shauna, Pat O'Brien and Majella Walsh.

The December County draw was held last Thursday night 7th in Bertie's Bar in Dundrum, sadly again this month again we had no winner from our members (or luck is not with us this year) let's hope the last couple of draws will be kind to us all, thank you for your support for this draw it is much appreciated.
