Carrick Swan Notes Monday March 11th

The club would like to congratulate both Stefan Tobin and Aaron O’ Halloran who were officially named on Tipperary panels this week. Stefan is a member of James’ Woodlock’s Tipperary u17 hurlers while Aaron O’ Halloran is a member of Brendan Cummins’ u20 hurlers. Well done to both, and best of luck for the year ahead. 

At the weekend, we’d five players representing South Tipperary between u14 & u15 in the Peadar Cummins & Roger Ryan Inter-divisional cups. Well done to our u14’s Aidan Sweetman, Craig O Donnell and Ordhan Reade and our u15’s Noah Power and Jack Raymond Walsh. 

Next weekend, our Premier Intermediate hurlers begin their year with a League fixture in Dolla. We take on Silvermines in Round 1 of the County Adult Hurling League on Sunday, St. Patrick’s Day, at 12 noon. We’d like to wish the team and mentors the very best of luck in 2024. 

Our Junior hurlers also have their first competitive outing of the year on Saturday. We travel to Ned Hall Park in Clonmel to take on Clonmel Og in in Round 1 of the County Adult Hurling League. That game throws in at 4pm. We’d also like to wish our Junior team and mentors the very best of luck for the year ahead. 

Groups were updated from what was originally circulated by the County Board a few weeks back. Our Premier Intermediate Group now consists of Burgess, Eire Og Annacarty, Silvermines, Cashel King Cormacs, Gortnahoe and St. Mary’s. 

Our Junior group is made up of Carrick Swan, Killenaule, Clonmel Og, Lattin-Cullen and Rockwell Rovers. 

Our u15 B Footballers first game of the championship will be on Thursday night when we welcome Ballingarry to Páirc na nEalaí. The game begins at 6-30pm. 

Our u13 B Footballers played St. Patrick’s of Drangan in Páirc na nEalaí on Friday last. We lost out by 5 points on the night. This coming week, we take on Killenaule on Tuesday night. The game is currently due to take place in Killenaule. 

Our juvenile boys and girls will take part in the Carrick-On-Suir St. Patrick’s Day parade this weekend. Parents & kids should meet at the Swan Hall/Library Car Park at 12.30pm on Sunday next. 

Our Cygnets Nursery has begun for 2024. Our Cygnets Nursery is for girls and boys aged 4, 5, 6, and 7. It takes places between 6.30pm and 7-15pm in the Swan Hall every Wednesday night. We would like to invite parents and kids along as we are all looking forward to the year ahead. Reach out to Martina on 087-9784249 or our Facebook page for more information about registering your child.

Our u8 and u10 Camogie girls started back training in the hall on Friday last. These girls will train each Friday in the Juvenile Hall until the weather improves.

New members are always welcome where fun and activities are guaranteed for all the kids. Our Coaches are Garda vetted, have the GAA Child Safeguarding Certificate and have Gaelic Games Coaching (ICGG) training completed, also. 

Our Easter camp for kids aged 6 to 13 will take place April 2nd to 4th and will run from 10am to 1pm each day. It will take place at Páirc na nEalaí each day, weather permitting, and all kids will receive a free sliotar and gaelic football. The cost is €40 per child and the link to register is available on our Facebook page. 

Our Junior B Camogie ladies had a good runout against Butlerstown in a challenge game at the weekend as they continue their preparations for the year ahead. 

This week’s Carrick Swan lotto jackpot is €8,250 as there was no winner of our €8,000 jackpot last week. The lotto numbers drawn were 10 – 23 – 24 -28. There were three match 3 winners with all of them winning €70 each. Well done, all. The club would like to thank you for your continued support. Your support helps our young players and also helps with our Field Development Project.
