St. Mary's GAA Club notes

Our U21’s league campaign did not get off to the ideal start on last Saturday, when we lost our first game of the season to Tubbercurry/Cloonacool on a scoreline of 2-12 to 0-07.   In challenging conditions our young side found the going difficult against a stronger opposition, and the timing of the 2 goals coming just before the half time break meant a difficult task was all but beyond the lads who still kept playing to the end.   

Unfortunately it was heartbreak for the County’s senior hurlers who lost their Division 3B league final to Longford in extra-time.    The lads overcame a substantial deficit to bring the match to extra time, but a resurgent Longford then opened a 4 point lead which Sligo could only close to 2 points at the final whistle.   Best wishes to all in Summerhill as they enter an important week with 2 quarter finals and a semi final down for decision.

Last Saturday, St Marys held its annual dinner dance, and thanks to everyone involved in organising the night.    We had a great attendance and the hard work of the organising committee was evident in how much everyone enjoyed themselves.   This Friday (March 15th) a trad music session is being held in the Clubhouse which will commence at 9.30pm, which promises to be another highly enjoyable social occasion.    All are welcome

The underage football program in Summerhill College Gym continues each Thursday until March 28th.  Then it is the turn of the Saturday morning Coaching which commences on April 6th.   Please note that Club membership registration for 2019 will take place on March 20th and 27th and from April 6th at Saturday morning training. Contact Registrars Siobhan O’Connor 087-9056488 or Gerry Buckley 087-7848421.
