We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of the local community and indeed beyond in our fundraising efforts for the new Indoor Astro Turf complex. After last week’s collection we are at €70200 and wish to thank all of those who have donated already for their fantastic generosity. We still require €5000 more to hit our target, and anyone who wishes to sponsor a block or a brick can visit our website or contact any committee member.
Our intermediate team had a comfortable 5-14 to 0-7 win over Easkey at Quigabar last Friday evening. Once again the squad was severely depleted but those present did enough to leave with the two points. Next Sunday evening the team host Tourlestrane in Quigabar from 5.30pm in a must-win encounter. Your support would be appreciated.
Continued good wishes to all club players sitting state examinations over the next couple of weeks. Training continues for all minors and U-16s who are free of exam commitments.
Our U-14 boys play in the Division Two shield semi-final on Monday evening when they travel to Coola to play Shamrock Gaels from 7pm. Best of luck to the players and management.
Our U-12s had a terrific 0-21 to 0-11 win over Tourlestrane last Wednesday evening. This is the team’s sixth win in succession and this was another impressive display away from home. They have a break this week before they host Curry on Tuesday week (June 27th).
We will once again be hosting a bonfire night event at Sheridan’s Kilglass on June 23rd this year. Due to the extraordinary generosity of the local community in our recent fundraising efforts, the night is free of charge with bouncy castles and a barbeque on the night. It all kicks off at 8.30pm – everyone welcome.
Congratulations to the Kilglass NS Girls team on claiming the 4-teacher school county title last Sunday afternoon in Markievicz Park. This was a very impressive result and a great achievement; well to all the players, mentors and parents.
Well done to Sligo on their 0-22 to 3-7 defeat of Antrim in round 1A of the qualifiers last Saturday evening. Commiserations to Michael Moyles and the Leitrim Senior footballers on their loss to Roscommon in the Connacht Championship last Sunday.
There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto jackpot. Next Saturday’s jackpot is €8700. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
