Rathcline GAA – Club Notes – Sunday 01st September 2013

posted 1 Sep 2013, 14:54 by Unknown user

Ladies Championship Final 2013 – Next Saturday evening - 7th September will see Rathcline and Mostrim face each other for the second time in as many games with Intermediate Championship Honours up for grabs. The game will take place in Leo Casey Pak at 5pm. The Ladies team are the last remaining hope for championship honours after the senior men’s exit last Sunday evening and we hope that everyone will come into Ballymahon to support the girls in their pursuit of glory. Great credit must be attributed to team manager Enda McGann and his fellow selector James Hanley for their work with the team to date. We look forward to the Ladies County Final in the hope that the girls can break through to the senior grade for the 2014 championship. We wish the team, management and executive the best in their preparations over the next couple of days.

Commiserations to our Senior Team who were narrowly beaten by Carrickedmond in the semi final of the Intermediate Championship on Sunday last. Final Score: Rathcline 2-05, Carrickedmond 1-09. Although things looked very positive at half time for Rathcline, Carrickedmond came out a much stronger team in the second half to earn their place in the final against the winners of Ardagh and Legan. We wish Carrickedmond the very best for the rest of the championship campaign. Many thanks to our own management team of Gerry Lynn, Albert Cooney and Joe Rooney for their work with the senior lads over the last eight months. There is a lot to look forward to in Rathcline GAA with some exciting young players making names for themselves at minor level. The progression of these players into the senior squad will add a new dimension to the senior team and hopefully the club will be holding the Hennessy Cup in the near future.

Juvenile U16 A Championship – Commiserations to Western Gaels U16 team who were defeated by Clonguish Og on Thursday evening 29th August in Clonbonny. The team have now won one and lost one in the group stages of the championship. The final “must win” group game will take place this Friday evening 6th September when the team play away to Northern Gaels in the Laurels at 7pm. A win will guarantee a semi placing in the “A” Championship. Your support would be very much appreciated.  

All Ireland Hurling Ticket Draw – €2 raffle tickets are readily available and are in circulation around the parish for a chance to win 2 Premium Stand tickets to this year’s All Ireland Hurling Final between Cork and Clare on Sunday 8th September. The draw will take place this Thursday night 5th September in Adies Bar at 11pm. All completed cards should be returned to any member of the Executive before Thursday evening.

Minor League – Congratulations to Western Gaels who recorded another comprehensive victory over our near neighbours - Southern Gaels in the semi final of the Minor League. The team are now looking to the double (after already claiming the Minor Championship) and face St. Colmcilles in the League final on Saturday 14th September. Venue has yet to be decided. This team has taken magnificent strides this year under the stewardship of Kevin Hanley and Mickey Hand and a potential double would cap off the perfect year for the team. Please keep an eye on fixtures for more details on the league final.

Sympathies – Rathcline GAA extends its deepest sympathies to the Sorohan families Lanesboro on the passing of Charlie on Sunday morning last. May he rest in peace.   

Club Rathcline Lotto Draw - Preparations are ongoing for Phase 2 of the Lotto campaign and it is hoped to have the fundraiser rolled out in the next couple of weeks. Letters will be posted out to our existing participants with subscription renewal forms. Many thanks to all our patrons who participated in the last lotto and we look forward to your support for Phase 2.

Shannon Gaels – Coaching for U6, U8, U10 and U12 will continue in Clonbonny on Friday in Clonbonny from 7pm to 8pm as normal.
