The year came to an end for the Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey minor team after they lost out to Castlebar Mitchels by four points, 3-13 to 3-9, in a pulsating Connacht Club quarter-final last Friday evening in Ballyhaunis. Despite a brilliant display, the lads fell just short but should be commended on a battling performance and indeed had things gone their way at crucial stages the outcome might have been different. However, there was very little fault in any aspect of the display and everyone should be proud of their efforts. The loss brought the curtain down on what was a historic couple of months after they claimed the county title only a week ago. Congratulations to the players and management on a successful season and well done to everyone involved. Thanks to Browne’s Pub in Pullaheeney for providing after-match refreshments on Friday evening and again to Lackan Wind Energy for their sponsorship of the team.
There was little rest for many of the minor boys who togged out for Sunday’s hard-fought 1-10 to 1-9 win over Calry/St Joseph’s at Hazelwood in round two of the U-21 ‘A’ Championship. A win over Tubbercurry/Cloonacool in the final round will see Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey top the group and qualify for the semi-finals. Time, date and venue for that fixture had yet to be made available at the time of writing but it will take place on November 5th/6th. Keep an eye out locally for details.
Surf and Turf
A massive thank you to all those who took part or helped out for our very successful Surf and Turf Run last Saturday. In excess of 120 participants braved the course on a fine morning, with everyone enjoying the mucky surrounds! Everyone enjoyed the day and the feedback afterwards was excellent from those who travelled from near and far. A full list of winners, pictures and everything else is available on the Enniscrone Surf and Turf Facebook page. A big thank you to Mattie Coleman and Coleman Electronics for their kind sponsorship of the event, and also to Eugene Nelson and MCM Insurance for sponsoring beanies for participants. We look forward to 2017’s event!
Commiserations to Eoin Hallinan and the Sligo U-16 boys on their 2-11 to 1-10 loss to Westmeath last Saturday. Eoin played at centre-half back for the third straight game.
While everyone else was running around Quigabar and Lackan, sponsor of the Surf and Turf and club stalwart Mattie Coleman was preparing for the Dublin Marathon which he took part in and completed in a fine time on Sunday afternoon! Well done Mattie on a great achievement.
There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto draw. The draw continues every Saturday night. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
