Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 23rd April 2017
While the playing area is now complete, the club needs to raise €75000 to bring our indoor astro turf complex to completion (heating, electrics, toilets, dressing room, kitchen, meeting room etc.). We are currently at €28000 and wish to thank all of those who have donated already for their fantastic generosity. All of those who donate prior to the May Bank Holiday weekend will be entered into a draw for cash prizes of €1000 and €500.
The club requires the generosity of the community: individuals, families and businesses, both at home and abroad to bring the project to a completion. As previously advertised, you can sponsor a brick at €100, a block at €250 or a wall at €1500. There are teams in the various areas/townlands to contact to donate, and there are also be weekly collection points held around the parish to facilitate people who wish to donate. This week on Monday (April 24th) there will be a collection evening in Gilroy’s from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. You can also donate online at www.enniscronekilglassgaa.com under the Astro Turf PayPal link. Your support at this extraordinary time in the club’s history is greatly appreciated.
A very poor and disappointing second half performance led to our intermediate team losing to Tourlestrane last Saturday, 1-10 to 0-11. 0-9 to 0-3 ahead at the break, our lads had no response for Tourlestrane’s second half comeback with wastefulness a major feature of our performance. The squad and management will seek major improvement ahead of next Sunday’s home fixture against Eastern Harps from 3pm.
The Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey minor prevailed after a cracking Division One tie with St Molaise Gaels at Quigabar last Thursday. 1-17 to 0-7 ahead at the half time, our lads excelled after the restart to end as 3-14 to 1-15 winners. They travel to take on Eastern Harps this Thursday evening at 7pm.
Our U-16 boys play Calry/St Joseph’s in Quigabar this Monday evening at 7pm.
Our U-14s lost out to Tourlestrane at Quigabar last Friday evening. They have a break from competitive action this week – training continues.
Our U-12s picked up a valuable win on the road last Wednesday evening thanks to a 0-16 to 0-14 defeat of Eastern Harps. They will look to continue their winning run this Tuesday against St Farnan’s in Templeboy at 7pm. Players are asked to be there at 6.30pm.
There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto jackpot. Next Saturday’s jackpot is €7300. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
