Congratulations to our u14 hurlers who qualified for the South Feile Final by defeating Moyle Rovers on Saturday last in Monroe. This game was played in very difficult weather conditions and after trailing 2-04 to 1-00 at half time we recovered in the 2nd half playing with the strong wind to run out winners 5-03 to 2-05. We will play St.Marys in South final with fixture details to be confirmed.

Carrick Swan club extends get well soon wished to long serving Moyle Rovers Juvenile Secretary Eileen Boland who is hospitalised at present after accident. Eileen is a familiar face at all juvenile games and we hope to see her back on duty in the not too distant future.

Hard luck to our Senior hurlers who lost out to St Mary’s on Saturday last by 1 point after a hard-fought game in terrible conditions in Clonmel Sportsfield.

Our Minor football game against Cahir was postponed last weekend due to Cahir’s involvement in the u21 County football Championship. We play Moyle Rovers in Ned Hall Park on Sunday next at 12 noon. Best of luck boys.

Our u12 footballers are also in action this coming week. Our u12 C’s take on Clonmel Commercials and Mullinahone while our A’s take on Kilsheelan-Kilcash.

On Saturday last, the club began gutting the building at Pairc na hEalaí at Ballyrichard. A great amount of work was completed and thanks to the following people for giving a big hand on a miserable morning, William Barrett, Ray Dunne, Lee Dunne, Aaron Dunne, Tom Kennedy, Colin Regan, Danny McNamara, Frankie McNamara, Willie Hahessy, Terry Lonergan, Vinny Power and Sean O’Shea.

While a lot was done there is still more to do to make the place more accessible to the professionals when they begin the renovation proper over the next number of months.

Phase 1 of the renovation will see the building being transformed, at ground floor level we will be installing two large dressing rooms complete with showers and toilets and plant rooms, we will also be adding an extension to the pitch side of the building to incorporate an entrance hallway, referees room complete with shower, and outside wheelchair accessible toilet.

Upstairs, we will be installing ladies and gents toilets, a kitchen area and a large meeting/function room with viewing window to the pitches. We will also be undertaking car park works this year.

Phase 2 will see the addition of 2 extra dressing rooms to either end of the existing building in the coming years. So a lot of work yet to complete but we are on target.

There was a large Carrick Swan representation at last Wednesday’s Youth Mass in St. Nicholas’ Church. The club would like to thank all those who attended with a special thanks to Terry, Ava, Bernadette, and Caoimhe for doing the readings during mass.

The club would like to thank all the boys, girls, and helpers who took part in this year’s St. Patrick’s parade. There was a great turnout this year, and you can see some pictures from the day on our Facebook page.

The club would like to wish both Jasmine Sweetman and Lorna Hennessy, who are representing the Swan club in the Scór Na Paistie final in Monroe next Sunday, the very best of luck. They’re competing in the musical section.
