The Junior ‘A’ hurling draw will take place later in the year.

In Junior ‘A’ football, there will be one group consisting of 9 teams.  Each team plays 4 games to determine positions in the Group. Quarter finals will be fixed from the finishing position in the group with 8 teams from the group qualifying. There will be an 8th place v 9th place playoff for the final quarter final place.

In Junior ‘B’ hurling, we’ve been drawn in Group A along with Killenaule, Carrick Davins, Marlfield, and Skeheenarinky. The top team in the group qualifies for the Semi-Final, positions 2 & 3 will qualify for the quarter finals while positions 4 and 5 will go into the brand-new Junior ‘C’ hurling championship.

In u19 ‘A’ hurling, we play Ballingarry in Round 1. Also in ‘A’ hurling this year are Mullinahone, Killenaule and St. Mary’s.

In u19 ‘A’ football, we’ve been drawn in Group 1 and will take on Fethard, Kilsheelan, and Cahir. Commercials, Moyle Rovers and Killenaule compete in Group 2.

The draws for the 2024 FBD County Hurling & Football Championships which were due to take place this week have been postponed, for now.

Congratulations to Alex O Dwyer and Aaron Brennan who were on the victorious South Tipperary Peader Cummins ‘A’ Shield winning team at the weekend.  Well done, boys.

Last week, we surprised our u7 Cygnets with Easter Eggs in their last session before Easter. There’s a photo of them enjoying their Easter eggs after training on our Facebook page. Check it out.

Hurling Wall & Astroturf Update

Artificial grass was laid, and the infilling began this week on our new AstroTurf. Handover from our contractors, JNC Premier Pitches is due over the coming week. The club would like to thank each and every person who supports our fundraising initiatives throughout the year.

Your continued support allows us to develop fantastic facilities like the Hurling Wall & Artificial playing pitch. This facility will allow us to cater for a large number of kids and adults all year-round for decades to come. So far, we’ve spent in excess of €1.3m on our new field development, with more planned in the near future. Thank you.

One such fundraising initiative is our Club lotto.

Club Lotto

This week’s Carrick Swan lotto jackpot is a whopping €9,000 as there was no winner of our €8,750 jackpot last week. The lotto numbers drawn were 03 – 04 – 05 -12. There were five match 3 winners with all of them winning €40 each. Well done, all. Your support helps our young players and also helps with our Field Development Project.


Carrick Swan club would like to pass on our condolences to the Coady family of Clarin, Lanigan family of Ballinurra, and the Power family of Faugheen on their recent bereavements.

1st Anniversary Mass

The family of the late Danny Walsh would like us to inform you that Danny’s 1st anniversary remembrance mass will take place in St. Nicholas Church, Carrick-On-Suir, on Saturday April 6th at 7.30pm.
