Club Notes: 21st January 2018
Shamrocks GAA Club Notes ( kindly sponsored by Allen Engineering & Agri Sales Ltd.)
Winning numbers from Saturday 20th January, 2-8-10-15, and there was no winner. €20 winners were Michael Murphy, Catherine Baldwin, Tom & Eileen Cody, Mary (Edmond) Murphy, and Sean Twomey. Next week’s jackpot will be €2,550.
It seems that I may have had a ‘senior moment’ in my reporting of the Shamrocks AGM a couple of weeks ago. For the record the Intermediate Hurling selectors for 2018 are Padraig Tobin, John O’ Donovan, and Michael Leahy. And the Junior Football selectors are Dan Casey, Declan Butler, and Seamie Tobin. Apologies to all concerned.
Allianz Leagues begin.
Next week sees the new Hurling League begin with Waterford playing neighbours Wexford in Walsh Park. Wexford will be buoyed by their Walsh Cup win over Kilkenny last week following sudden death and 65 meter frees to decide it. Waterford have so far refrained from playing any Munster League games which can be really tough this time of the year especially given the poor weather conditions. So I expect a tough day for the Deise with a win for Davy Fitzgerald’s yellowbellies certainly not out of the question. It’s important to stay in the higher division of the League, but perhaps not essential considering how Galway fared out last year, and they are still in Div. 2…..
Emily Byrne Fund.
Listen out for baby Emily Byrne’s mother Ann Marie this Thursday on WLR around 10.30am. Among the issues she will be discussing are the landline problems rural areas like Knockanore have to put up with. As you can imagine the lack of a reliable landline can be a serious problem if you are waiting for post of a donor, and unfortunately our mobile coverage is not very reliable either. As for Broadband, well the kindest thing I could say about the so-called National Broadband Rollout is that it’s a joke. Please listen to the programme and text in your support afterwards.
