Adult Hurling & Football 

Our Junior ‘A’ footballers beat Killenaule, with 8 points to spare, on Saturday evening in Monroe. Well done lads. We take on St. Patrick’s this coming Friday evening in Ned Hall Park, The Bypass, Clonmel. The game throws in at 7.45pm. Best of luck.

Our Premier Intermediate hurlers will take on Upperchurch Drombane in Round 1 of the Seamus O’Riain County Championship. We await the time, date and venue for that fixture.

Juvenile Scene

Our u13 boys drew with Kilsheelan-Kilcash on Friday evening last. Well done, boys.

Our u15 boys begin their Championship this Thursday when we travel to Mullinahone. Best of luck.

Our u12 Camogie girls take on Moyle Rovers on The Green on Monday night (June 17th) at 7pm. Best of luck, ladies.

Well done to our u10 Camogie girls who travelled to Cloneen for an u10 Blitz last week. Our girls were superb on the night and all really enjoyed themselves. We’d like to thank St. Patrick’s for their hospitality.

Over the past 5 weeks, Swan coaches have worked with The Presentation Primary School to introduce hurling and camogie to Junior and Senior infants’ classes. The kids absolutely loved each session, and the club would like to thank the school as well as our own coaches who gave up their time and put on some really fun and enjoyable sessions. Well done to Keith Butler, Tony Hogan, Pat Sinnott, and Martina Sinnott.

The club has also donated some hurleys and sliotars to the school, also, so that the kids can continue to enjoy playing in the weeks ahead. With the skills on show, over the last few weeks it’s clear that the future is bright for hurling and camogie in Carrick-On-Suir.

Black & White in Blue & Gold

Stefan Tobin and the Tipperary Minor hurlers overcame Galway on Saturday afternoon in a classic, that went to Extra Time. Stefan played full forward. Well done. The Tipperary Minors now prepare or Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Final.
