We now turn our attention to 2019 and get set for what will be another very busy year both on and off the field for Carrick Swan Hurling, Football, and Camogie Club.

As our facilities grow, so too does the workload.

At the moment some people have to fulfil two, three and even more different functions in the club and this is not fair. A club the size of ours should have enough volunteers to give a little of their time in helping out with the running of the club and to help lighten the load.

So, this week, we ask you the following question. Can you give a couple of hours per week to help out in 2019?

If you can, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact any committee member (See https://carrickswan.com/carrick-swan-committee/), message us on Facebook, or phone/email us (See: https://carrickswan.com/contact-carrick-swan/) for further information on how you can help us.

It’ll be one of the most rewarding decisions that you make in 2019.

Parents/Guardians please take the time to think about this as well, your children get great enjoyment as they play with the club, so shouldn’t you be willing to offer to help too?

Our Annual General Meeting takes place on Sunday January 13th at 2pm in the club and this meeting is the most important meeting of the year as key decisions are made at it, so we ask you to come down to it and give your opinion, as it is important to us, and to ask any questions you may have.

At the end of the day the club belongs to everyone, so please play your part and help out, ‘ask not what your club can do for you but rather what you can do for your club’.

Our Juvenile lotto jackpot last week was €5,500.  The numbers drawn were 02 – 03 – 07 – 19. There was no winner. Three Match 3 win €70 each. Next Week’s Jackpot is €5,750. It costs just €2 to enter and you can play through any of our ticket sellers, or online, via our website. Thank you for your continued & appreciated support.

Carrick Swan would like to pass on their condolences to the Keogh family, Kennedy Terrace, the Foley Finn family, Dunbane, and the Baker Gorman family, Carrick-Beg, on their recent bereavements.
