Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA Club Notes

Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 9th 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 €21800 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 Wednesday (April 19th) there will be a collection evening in Sheridan’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.


Our Intermediate team play Easkey on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon at 1pm in Easkey, in round two of the league.


The Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey minor team got their first win of the Division One campaign with a 1-14 to 0-8 defeat of Tubbercurry/Cloonacool last Thursday evening. This was a decent display from the lads with Conal Duffy’s late goal applying to gloss to a solid performance. They play St Molaise Gaels this Thursday evening – keep an eye out locally for details.


Our U-16 boys suffered a 3-16 to 0-9 defeat against St Farnan’s/St Pats last Monday evening. Training continues this week.


Our U-14s play Tourlestrane next Friday evening at 7pm at home.


Our U-12 boys had a fantastic day out at Croke Park last Wednesday as they took part in a blitz organised by Connacht GAA. All players acquitted themselves very well on the day with plenty of parents there to cheer them on. Well done to the squad and management on representing the club so well on the hallowed turf. Thanks to Ridgepool Fuels for their sponsorship of tops for the big day. The boys return to domestic duty this Tuesday evening when they play Eastern Harps in the league at 7pm in Keash.
