Cahir GAA Club Notes

Hurling League

On St. Patrick's Day we had a rear home game when we played Grangemockler/Ballyneale in the first round of the junior A hurling league, with all the rain we had a few days before this match the pitch was delicate to say the least and would have a bearing on the game, the first half was low scoring and in fact Cahir failed to raise any kind of flag even though they had a few opportunities to register a couple of scores but were not taken, in the bitter cold the first half came to an end with our visitors leading 0-04 to no score, the second thirty saw the game go beyond our team with the Grange outfit getting the only goal of a game that at this time of year was not attractive, our men finally got on the score sheet but could not do enough to make it a contest, to be fair Cahir were missing a number of players and their first outing this year things will get better, final score Cahir 0-05 Grangemockler/Ballyneale 1-09, (below great photo of Colin McEniry in action), full team and scorers: Keelan Hickey, Colin McEniry, Kieran O'Dwyer, Eoin O'Neill, Ger Hally, Eoin Donaghy, Liam Howard, Conor Casey, Darragh Howard, Alan O'Connor (0-2), Eddie Kendrick, Mikey O'Connor (0-1), Sean O'Connor, Eddie Meehan (0-1), Eanna Heffernan. Subs Used: (0-2), Ryan O'Donnell (0-1), Brian Enright

Draw the Joker

As you all know last week all our proceeds from that draw went to the Tomás Kelly Trust Fund, with the great generosity from our members and everybody throughout the parish the brilliant sum of €6,000 was raised for this cause, again thank you on behalf our club and the Trust fund, this week we were in the Abbey Tavern, and the winners were: Eddie Hally, Albert Doyle, Dylan/Cavan, James English and Mike Smith.

St. Patrick's Day

A big thank you to all our young boys and girls and all the mentors who took part in the parade under our club banner, always a pleasure to represent our club on special days like St. Patrick's Day, a special word of congratulations to Sponge Bob aka Juvenile chairman Tommy Barrett who won a prize at this year's parade, Tommy donated his prize money to the Tomás Kelly Trust Fund, a very nice thing to do, good on you Tommy, (below Sponge Bob and a couple of photos from the parade)
