Carrick Swan Notes Monday January 29th

A little history was made on Saturday last as Emma O’ Halloran became our first player to represent the Tipperary Camogie ladies in a competitive game. Emma was a member of the Junior Camogie panel who lost out to Cork by 4 points (1-10 to 0-09) in Round 1 of the Very National Camogie League 2B. Commiserations on the result, Emma.

Well done to Callum Walsh who was a member of the SETU Waterford Fresher 1 hurling team who defeated UCC last week in the first round of the Fresher All Ireland Championship.

Well done to Gavin O’ Halloran who was a member of the Tipperary Senior hurling panel who defeated Limerick by 13 points on Sunday in the Dillon Quirke Foundation game in FBD Semple Stadium.

Our successful 2023 Juvenile teams will receive their medals this coming Saturday, February 3rd, at 5pm in our Juvenile Hall. Congratulations once again to our 2023 South winning u13’s and u17’s and our County winning u14 Super 10s.

Work is progressing nicely on our new all-weather pitch and hurling wall. The hurling wall and fencing should be installed this week. Keep an eye out on our Social Media channels over the coming weeks to see photos of how it’s progressing.

Junior Camogie training resumes in the Swan Hall on Tuesday next, February 6th, and every Monday night thereafter for the next few months. Our Camogie ladies will also train in Piltown on Thursday evenings for the next few months. New players are always welcome. Contact Mary on 086-1987010 or Michael on 087-2725067 for more information.

Last week’s Carrick Swan lotto numbers were 05 – 06 – 07 – 21. The jackpot was €6,500 and there was no winner so next week’s jackpot is €6,750. There were seven match 3 winners who won €30 each. Well done, all.

All in the club are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Bernie Lonergan after illness borne with great dignity. Bernie of course was the wife of club legend William who passed away in 2014.

Bernie was a wonderful loyal supporter of the club who when William was alive, she would be seen at all our games, she was also a great volunteer and did trojan work for the club over many years, up to the time of her passing Bernie remained a true Swan.

All of Bernie’s children played with the club and many grandchildren too, her daughter in-law Terry was our Juvenile Secretary for many years.

The part that Bernie played in the building of the club juvenile centre should not be underestimated either and she was a key component of that project along with William.

A deeply religious lady with a big heart, a beautiful singing voice and always a smile, Bernie will be missed by all who knew her.

We extend our deepest sympathy to Bernie’s sons Sean, Bobby, Liam and daughter Mandy, her brothers Tom and Pat and sister Frances and all of the extended family members.

Carrick Swan would also like to pass on their condolences to the Morrissey family of Kickham Street and the O’Callaghan family of Carrick and Piltown, on their recent bereavements.
