Our U9s competed in the Mount Sion Dickie Roche memorial tournament last weekend.

We’d like to thank the Mount Sion club for extending an invite to play in the tournament, and also like to thank them for their hospitality on the day.

All in the club are saddened to hear of the passing after illness of Patrick ‘Patsy’ Dalton. Patsy was a very fine hurler with the Swan and he won a south senior hurling medal in 1958 when he put in a sterling performance as a half forward when the Swan beat a very strong Theo English led Marlifield/Grange combination in the south final.
Patsy always enquired about the welfare of the club and remained a staunch supporter up to his passing. The club extends its deepest sympathy to his bereaved family at this sad time.
Carrick Swan would also like to pass on their condolences to the Walsh family, Carrick-Beg, and Tramore, and the Phelan family, Ballyneale, on their recent bereavements.
