Carrick Swan Notes Monday April 8th
Date For Your Diary
Carrick Swan GAA Club would like to inform you that on Friday May 3rd, at 7-30pm, we will welcome Limerick hurling legend, Ciaran Carey and friends, to the Carrick Swan Juvenile Hall.
Ciaran and his colleagues will make a presentation on addiction and mental health awareness. They’ll chat openly and honestly about the effects addiction and mental health can have on individuals, families, and communities. A big crowd is expected on the night, and both parents and players are strongly encouraged to attend this event.
Adult Hurling & Football
The draws for the 2024 FBD Insurance County Hurling and Football Championships will now take place on Thursday, April 18th and will be broadcast live on Tipp GAA TV (YouTube) from 8pm. The link to watch will be circulated in the days before the event by the Tipperary GAA Twitter account.
We currently await our next County League fixtures for our Junior and Premier Intermediate hurlers.
Juvenile Scene
On Thursday last, our u15 footballers got their 4th win, from 4 games with a hard fought victory over Ardfinnan in Páirc na nEalaí. This coming Thursday we take on St. Patrick’s in Round 5. The venue is yet to be finalised. The game will throw in (somewhere) at 7pm. Best of luck lads.
Our u13 South Quarter Final which was due to take place at the weekend was postponed due to the weather. The game will take place on Tuesday night, in Ballyneale, instead. Throw in is 7pm. Best of luck, boys.
Our u14 girls’ game on Saturday last against Lorrha was cancelled due to the miserable weather, also.
Last week, 50 kids attended our Easter Camp where all boys and girls received a sliotar and football after a week of fun with lots of games and activities. The club would like to say a massive thank you to Siobhan O’Dwyer who once again organised the Easter Camp this year.
Our u14 Boys Féile Peile na nÓg will take place on Saturday April 20th in Clonoulty. In our group we have Kilruane MacDonaghs, Clonoulty Rossmore and Ballyporeen. Best of luck boys.
Our u9’s hosted a Blitz on Friday night on The Green. We welcomed Ballingarry, Clonmel Óg, and Mullinahone and the kids from all teams served up some fine hurling in some horrible playing conditions. Despite the weather, all the kids loved games. We’d like to thank Ballingarry, Clonmel Óg, & Mullinahone for travelling down on the night.
Swan Boys in Blue & Gold
Well done to Stefan Tobin and the Tipperary Minor hurlers last week on a great victory over Cork in Round 1 of the Munster Championship. Tipp take on Waterford on Thursday next, in Fraher Field, Dungarvan at 7pm. Best of luck, Stefan and team.
Aaron O’Halloran and the Tipperary u20’s begin their year this week, also. Tipp take on Limerick in the Gaelic Grounds on Friday night with the game throwing in at 7pm. Best of luck, Aaron and team.
On Monday night (April 8th), Callum Walsh and the Tipperary u19 team will play Limerick in the final of the Munster/Connaught u19 Developmental Championship. Our own Derek Hogan is also a member of the Tipperary u19 management team this year. Best of luck to both.
The Tipperary ‘Gold’ Celtic Challenge cup game against Wexford was postponed due to the weather over the weekend. Swan’s Darragh Dunne is a member of this team.
Club Lotto
This week’s Carrick Swan lotto jackpot is a whopping €9,250 as there was no winner of our €9,000 jackpot last week. The lotto numbers drawn were 01 – 03 – 15 – 27. There were four match 3 winners with all of them winning €50 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 Phelan Kavanagh family of Ballylynch, Fitzgerald family of Ash Park, the Walsh family of Colins Park, the O’Sullivan family of Piltown, and the Wall family of Rathgormack on their recent bereavements.
