Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA Club notes

U-21

 

The Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey U-21 footballers are two from two in the U-21 A Championship following two group wins last weekend. On Friday evening they ended as six-point winners over Tourlestrane, 1-12 to 0-9, and they followed that up less than 48 hours later with a 2-13 to 2-3 defeat of holders Tubbercurry/Cloonacool at Quigabar. They are now through to the knockout stages where they await confirmation of their next fixture.

 

Upcoming fixtures

 

Quigabar will play host to Tourlestrane’s Connacht Senior Club Championship game against Mayo champions Ballintubber on Sunday, November 4th. The day before, the Sligo Intermediate Champions will go up against Leitrim representatives Fenagh-St Cailins at the same venue.

 

Refereeing duties

 

There was a unique double for the club in the past week on the refereeing front. At the Sligo Senior Football final at Quigabar, our own Michael Duffy took charge and a week later for the hurling decider at Scarden another club man, Michael Connolly, was the man in the middle. Well done to both men on their efficient handling of the marquee fixture in either code.

 

Wedding bells

 

Congratulations to Mark Gordon and Annemarie Gaughan on their wedding last Saturday in Belmullet.

 

Sympathy

 

The club extends its sympathy to the Sweeney family, Quigabar, on the passing of Lena Sweeney last week. The club provided a guard of honour last Friday evening.

 

Club lapel pins

 

There are a limited number of lapel pins showcasing the club crest – and importantly the correct spelling of Enniscrone as Gaeilge agus as Béarla – available at present. They are a quality item that would make a great present, and also show your support for the upcoming plebiscite on the town name. They are available from any committee member for €10.

 

Blotto

 

There was no winner of last weekend’s blotto draw. Please note that the draw has reverted back to its traditional Saturday night slot for the winter months.
