Surf and Turf Run
We’re delighted to announce that the annual Surf and Turf run is back again for 2016 on Saturday, October 29th (bank holiday weekend). This event, over five kilometres, is fast becoming a staple of the autumnal calendar across the west Sligo and north Mayo areas and we look forward to another fantastic day again this year filled with obstacles, bog and plenty of fun! You can find the event on Facebook (Enniscrone Surf and Turf Run) and Twitter (@surfturf2016). More details will follow in the coming weeks, but for now get training!
The minor team continue training this week. No date for the final vs Owenmore Gaels had been made available at the time of writing.
Our U-13 boys put in a good performance to defeat Coolaney/Mullinabreena at Quigabar last Sunday morning, 4-8 to 4-3. This was an especially good result given the absence of a couple of players plus the horrendous playing conditions. The team will hope to maintain their momentum when they play away to Geevagh next Sunday morning at 11am.
Astro-turf pitch development
Construction will soon start on our eagerly awaited indoor astro-turf complex at Quigabar. This major development is the biggest in the club’s history and will mark the start of a new, modern era for GAA within the parish. A sod turning event, performed by Sports Minister Mr Patrick O’Donovan TD, takes place on Tuesday, October 4th from 10am at Quigabar. Everyone is most welcome to this event to kick-start the development.
There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto draw. The draw continues every Saturday night and your continued support is greatly appreciated.
