Tourlestrane GAA Club notes
Our u21 lads just didn’t seem to get off the ground in the first half of their game v Shamrock Gaels this afternoon and went in to the dressing room without getting on the scoreboard at half time with the visitors at 4/4. Despite losing the game,  having come back to score 1/8 to the Gaels 6 points in the second half we are through to a semi final v Eastern Harps next Friday night away at 7pm.
Our ladies continued their winning ways this morning with a great win over St Nathy’s in Bunninadden in Baltic conditions leaving them also in a semi final in the warm up league . Our senior Hurlers lost out to Naomh Eoin on Saturday evening.
Friday evening our u12 girls beat St Nathy’s girls by the smallest margins one score !
Our u14 boys were unlucky and were beaten by St John’s in their opening game of the season. Thank you to Curry for hosting a great blitz for our future stars last Wednesday evening . Great fun was had by all , and also on Wednesday our u12 Hurlers drew with Naomh Eoin . Monday last was a winning night for both our u16 girls and boys who were both out v Shamrock Gaels .
Our Very successful Easter camp runs again this year and the dates are April 16th 17th And 18th (this week) . Run by the senior ladies with help from the senior lads it’s always a great week .
Congratulations to Sligo u17 boys and management who won the Jim Mc Guigan shield beating Down on Saturday.
Our recent scrap metal collection organised by Danny Jones and Patrick Normanly raised a staggering €7053, which was 40% more than we initially envisaged. A sincere thanks is due to the Co-ordinators, to the  many Volunteers  who helped out both before and on the big day and to the many people throughout the parish and beyond who took time out to donate scrap.
Friday last we were saddened to hear of the passing of a true supporter of Tourlestrane GAA club, Christina Walsh. RIP.
She was the first Lady Officer of Tourlestrane Club and from the mid 70s when her son Matthew started his underage career had been known to transport at least half a team in her car to matches all over the county   and has continued all the way along to see her grandchildren play in the green and gold.
An avid supporter and eventually Patron of her beloved Tourlestrane GAA she will be remembered as a lady with an eternal smile on her face especially on days the club were winning .
The club extends sympathies to her son Matt her daughters Sheila Fiola Irene And Paulette and all the extended family. Ní bheidh a leithéid ann arís. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
