Minor ‘A' Football Championship

The first outing for our minor footballers took place last Sunday in Ned Hall Park at noon, where Grangemockler/Ballyneale stood in front of our team, our team captained by Darragh Heffernan (pictured wearing number 2) played well as a unit in the first half and exchanged points with our opponents and led by two at the half time whistle, 0-07 to 0-05, the second started as our men left off in the first playing well and ten minutes in were six points up and to mention one player Kevin Grogan was doing nothing wrong and shone as the game went on, for the next ten minutes Cahir seemed to take the foot off the gas and allowed the combo team back into it with a converted penalty and a couple of points to draw level with five to go, our team settled again and scored two more points to see out the win, final score 0-13 to 1-08, well done to all the panel of players and the management team, full team and scorers: Killian Halpin, Liam O'Neill, Eoin Wyse, Liam Hickey, Darragh Heffernan, Christopher McDonagh, Tommy McDonagh, Kevin Grogan (0-4), Francie Delaney (0-1), Gareth Butler, Jake Kiely (0-1), Jack Buckley (0-2), Jake Fitzgerald, Dylan Browne, David Clifford (0-5). Subs Used: Kevin Hickey, Conor Kirwan

Draw the Joker

Morrissey's Bar was the venue last Sunday for our weekly fund raiser, thanks to Brian and Mags for looking after us as always, our jackpot is growing nicely and next week the jackpot will be €5,400, not to be sniffed at, this week's winners: Mary & Clare Hickey, Eimear Collins, Helen Casey, John O'Donoghue and Margaret O'Connor.

The county draw has now finished for this twelve month period, as we did not have many winners in the draw this year and indeed the last few months, as a thank you for joining the draw with us we have decided to give something back to all who joined with Cahir GAA, we decided to give twenty members half their money back for being loyal to our club as a thank you, €50 x 20, so we put all the names of all the people with us in the draw and we drew the twenty names at our last committee meeting and here are the first four winners of €50: James Meagher, Cathal Davis, Jimmy Maher and Sandra Burke

We will bring you another four names next week and so on until we publish all twenty, and remember the new county draw will start again soon and we will be looking for your support again to help us make this fine club even better for the future, thank you again for supporting us in the past and we hope you will continue to do so going forward.

Staying on county matters

Our senior county footballers were in hard luck last Sunday when sadly they were relegated to division three in the league after a spirited performance against Clare with club man Liam Casey getting on the score sheet, let's hope Liam and the team have a good championship in 2019, things were brighter for our county ladies football team when they were assured their division one status for next year after getting the better of Monaghan with club player Aisling Moloney (pictured below) scoring ten points, some of her tally from long range frees which were amazing, also helping the cause last Sunday was club player Roisin Howard (also pictured), well done to our club players and all the county team, again we hope they have a good championship.
