Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 20th May 2018
Intermediate

Our intermediate team played out a 0-11 apiece draw with neighbours Castleconnor at Quigabar last Saturday evening in round six of the Division Two league. In blustery conditions, the visitors led 0-9 to 0-3 at half-time but an improved second half showing backed by the wind helped our lads retrieve the situation, though some very wasteful shooting did not help our cause. Best wishes and a speedy recovery to Keith Mullaney who sustained a foot injury in the first half.

He was a regular fixture at Quigabar with the various hurling teams within the club and at the time of his death was Assistant Secretary of the Sligo county board. We extend our deepest sympathies to Donal’s wife Christine, his son Daniel, daughter Emma and the extended family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Joe McManus RIP

The club was greatly saddened this week at the passing of one of our greatest stalwarts, Joe McManus. Since arriving in Enniscrone in the 1960s as Garda Sergeant, Joe was a truly dedicated clubman and contributed enormously to the GAA in our parish and at county level also as a member of the Sligo County Board for many years. The esteem in which Joe was held was illustrated in the size of our club guard of honour on Wednesday evening, and again on Thursday morning. Club colours draped the coffin as Joe was brought to his final resting place in St Patrick’s Cemetery. The club extends its deepest sympathy to the McManus family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
FBD League
Unfortunately the FBD League meeting of Sligo and Mayo had to be moved from Quigabar to Ballina last Sunday morning after torrential overnight rain made our pitch unplayable.
