Carrickshock G.A.A. 14 Lúnasa 2016
All Ireland Semi Final
Kilkenny gave us another fantastic evening’s entertainment in Thurles on Saturday. Well done to the whole panel, including Carrickshock’s John Power, on reaching yet another All-Ireland Final. We’re all looking forward to September 4 already, just the small matter of tickets to sort out!
Our Intermediates are into the semi-final of the Aylward Cup Intermediate League. They put on an impressive display in Friday’s quarter-final against Glenmore in Hugginstown, coming through by 2-11 to 1-8..
Carrickshock lost their Junior A crown on Sunday evening against Thomastown in Ballyhale. This was a disappointing result, especially after opening a 4-point lead midway through the 2nd half. But Thomastown finished far stronger and deserved their 1-14 to 0-14 win.
The Under 16’s bowed out of the Under 16 Championship, losing their Quarter Final last Tuesday against O’Loughlin’s in Callan. The boys never got up to the pace of the game from the word go. And playing into a stiff breeze in the 1st half, they simply left themselves too much to do in the 2nd half, going in 3-10 to 0-5 behind. They did up their game early in the 2nd half but eventually went down 3-16 to 1-7. The boys shouldn’t be too disheartened though, their season saw a number of great performances in the league, finishing joint top of their group and narrowly missing out on a league final. They all still have plenty of hurling left this year, with minor and Under 14 Championships still to come. Under-16 Panel: Eoghan O’Neill, Padraig Lennon, Chris Grace, Mason Byrnes, Jack McGuirk, Michael Murphy, Dima Kenneally, Killian Byrnes, John Cassin, Barry Lennon, Jake O’Dwyer, Luke McNamara, Luke Hudson, Oisin Carroll, Eoin Crowley, Tommy Doyle, Patrick Hickey, Shane Fennelly, James O’Shea, Brendan Fitzpatrick, Luke Dermody. Coaches: John Raggett, Jim Rice, Declan Lennon, Jimmy Sheehan, Joe Brennan.
The Big Fry
The 1st instalment of the Big Fry was a great success on Sunday morning. A great community gathering was out to avail of the great spread on offer in Hugginstown. Don’t worry if you missed out – next instalment in Stoneyford Sunday week 28th.
