Carrick Swan Notes – Monday April 3rd
This coming Saturday, the Tipperary senior hurlers play Wexford in Páirc na nEalaí at 3pm.
The game is being held to help raise much needed funds towards the ongoing medical and rehabilitation costs of Ryan O’Dwyer from Ballyrichard Road and formerly of Main Street, Carrick-on-Suir. In early July 2022 Ryan was involved in a very serious road traffic accident on his way home from work. He has since undergone two brain operations and has also suffered severe spinal injuries which unfortunately has left Ryan paralysed from the chest down.
Ryan has suffered life changing injuries but remains very positive. He will require rehabilitation therapy, medical treatment and will require support with his long term costs associated with his injuries. All proceeds from this game will go directly to the Ryan O’Dwyer Road to Recovery fund. We are asking for a massive turnout for this game.
The club would like to say a huge thanks to Jimmy & Fiona Jaypau of Jimmy’s Takeaway for their very kind sponsorship of a set of Jerseys for our u14 & u16 Camogie teams. Jimmy presented the jersey’s to the girls last week. Photos of the presentation can be viewed on our Facebook page.
Last weekend in Páirc na nEalaí, there was two games. Our Premier Intermediate hurlers drew with Killenaule on Saturday in Round 2 of their County Hurling League while our Junior hurlers lost out to Knockavilla-Donaskeigh Kickhams by 2 points in a tight encounter in Round 2 of their County Hurling League.
This coming Thursday, our u15 boys take on Ardfinnan in Round 2 of their football championship. Then, on Saturday next, our u15 boys swap the big ball for the small ball and play three hurling games in the 2023 County Tipperary Feile na Gael Championship. We take on Moyne- Templetuohy, Gortnahoe-Glengoole, and Clerihan in our group. All three games take place in Gortnahoe, with out first game throwing in against Moyne at 11am. Best of luck boys.
Our Easter Camp is also taking place this week at Páirc na nEalaí for children aged 6-13. Each child taking part will receive a sliotar and a gaelic football. It’s sure to be yet another enjoyable Easter Camp for all the kids taking part.
On the camogie front, our u14 girls played very well against a good Mullinahone side on Saturday morning on The Green but lost out in the end. The girls competed well and never gave up throughout. Well done girls.
Our u12 girls travelled to Monroe to take part in a camogie blitz on Saturday morning, also. We played some really high quality games against St. Mary’s Moyle Rovers, and Brian Borus. We would like to thank the host club, Moyle Rovers for their hospitality and for the invite to the blitz. It was a great morning’s camogie, and the girls really enjoyed themselves.
Last week’s Carrick Swan lotto numbers were 11 – 17 – 19 – 23. The jackpot was €2,000 and there was no winner so next week’s jackpot is €2,250. There was however, four match 3’s who won €50 each. The club would like to thank you sincerely for supporting our lotto. Your support helps our young players and also helps our field development project. You can purchase your lotto tickets online, here: www.carrickswan.com/lotto.
Carrick Swan would like to pass on their condolences to the Maye family of Castle Street and Joanstown, and the Fahey family of Dunbane on their recent bereavements.
