Club Notes Sunday, April 10th, 2016

posted 11 Apr 2016, 13:44 by Jimmy O'Brien
It’s three league wins out of three for the senior men’s team in Division 2 after Sunday’s 5-16 to 0-3 victory against Ballymote at Corran Park. Captained by county star Neil Ewing, the team lead 1-9 to 0-2 by the interval and never looked back after that. We play St John’s at Oxfield in round four of the league on Saturday evening at 6:30pm.

Hard luck to club players Rachel Monaghan, Michelle McNamara and the Sligo ladies team who lost their final regulation Division 2 match to Laois by a single point on Sunday. Sligo now face a make-or-break relegation play-off against Meath this weekend. 

Our U12 girls footballers enjoyed a comprehensive win over Owenmore Gaels last Friday evening to back up their previous victory over Calry/St Joseph’s in the league. 

Well done to our U12 hurlers who beat Tubbercurry by a point on Tuesday last.

The boys minor footballers lost their opening league match of the season to St John’s last week on a final scoreline of 2-11 to 2-6. 

Our thanks to St Molaise Gaels and all the coaches, parents and supporters for helping to make last Saturday’s U8 & U10 blitz at Oxfield such a success. The club’s GAA Nursery continues this Saturday morning from 9:35am (U6). New players are always very welcome.

Our cultural officer, John O’Callaghan, will be one of the guest speakers at a special event in the Hawk’s Well theatre on April 25th, which will examine what life was like in Sligo at the time of the 1916 Rising. For ticket information, see our Facebook page or visit hawkswell.com.

Well done to 15-year-old Luke Kerrigan on his excellent organisation of another very successful Tractor Run last Sunday from Oxfield, which raised valuable funds of the event's chosen charities: Sligo Cancer Support Centre & North West Hospice. The Force is strong in this one!

A meeting of the #CyclePoint2Point organising committee takes place this Wednesday night in Davis’s restaurant, Drumcliffe at 9pm.

The club extends its deepest sympathy to Mary Feighney and family, Springfield, following the death of Michelle Feighney in Japan last week
