On Friday evening, we received word from the South Board that our u21 South Football Championship opener which was due to take place on Saturday had been called off at the request of the County Board while they wait on clarification from Croke Park on age guidelines for the u21 grade. Let’s hope that giving clubs less than 24 hours’ notice of fixture postponements isn’t setting the tone for what’s to come this year.

We’re due to take on Knockmealdown Gaels on Saturday next in Ned Hall Park (Clonmel Og) at 2pm in u21 football. Best of luck, lads.

A large crowd attended our A.G.M. on Wednesday last in the new clubhouse.

The club would like to thank those that helped clean the new clubhouse last week in preparation for the A.G.M., also. They were Natasha Kennedy, Terry Lonergan, Yvonne O’Halloran, Bobby Lonergan, Dick Lanigan, Tom Kennedy, Seamus Walsh, Willie Hahessy, Jim Bourke, James Hogan and Sean O’Shea. Thanks for answering the call.

If you’d like to get involved in coaching, mentoring, or helping out with any of our Juvenile teams, please reach out to any team mentor, committee member, or contact us through our Facebook page for more information. Many hands make light work.

Our u16 Camogie girls started back training this week in the Juvenile Hall. If you’d like to start or return to playing with our u16 girls team, please attend training in the hall on Tuesday nights.

The club would like to congratulate both Jamie Holloway and Noel Obilor who are in with the Tipperary u20 football team at the moment.

Last week’s jackpot was €10,500 and there was no winner. Eight people were just one number off the winning or sharing the jackpot. Those eight matched 3 and won €30 each. The numbers drawn were 01 – 10 – 21 – 24. This week’s jackpot is €10,750.

It costs just €2 to enter and you can play through any of our ticket sellers, or online, via our website. Your continued support is most welcome and greatly appreciated by all in the club.

The club extends its deepest sympathy to the Russell Doran family, Manor Close, Carrick Beg on the very sad passing of Cillian.

Carrick Swan would also like to pass on their condolences to the Power family, The Hill, Carrick Beg and the Butler family, Treacy Park and Portlaw on their recent bereavements.
