Notes for the week :
Our main match of the week was on Tuesday night in the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence Ballyhaunis where our Senior men overcame a strong Kilannin team to win the Leo Kenny Cup for the first time since 2011. The two teams seemed well matched by the midway mark after Tourlestrane had been lagging behind for the first 20 minutes. The second half kept the spectators thrilled as the game continued with great excitement and both teams battled it out to the final whistle with the score Tourlestrane 16 points to Killannins 1/11and the Leo Kenny was raised by captain James Leonard. Well done to the team and managers Eamonn O Hara and Gerry Mc Gowan with Michael Gallagher.
Our u16 girls had a big win in their game away to Drumcliff on Thursday night and the u14 boys were unlucky in their game v a stronger Molaise Gaels team on Friday night at home.
Our u12 boys took part in a blitz in Curry on Saturday morning and played some excellent football and made it through to the Michael Haran Cup Final but were eventually beaten. Thank you to Curry GAA for a super morning of football for our future stars.
Congratulations to Paddy Henry Aclare, manager and the Sligo Ladies team who overcame Roscommon today Sunday on a scoreline of 3/8 to 1/6 in the All Ireland Quarter Final.
Congratulations also to Conan Marren who added 2 more All Ireland Medals to his collection in the Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann 2017 this weekend in Ennis.
Well done to all our club members who received their leaving cert results this week and best wishes to them in their future paths !!!!
The club wishes to extend sympathy to the Carty Family on the passing of their mother Mary Carty Clooncagh during the week. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sí .

Our senior teams made a good start to the Championship this weekend with the Senior lads winning their game in a hard fought battle in Markievicz Park last night against Drumcliff Rosses Point and the Junior Men’s encounter this afternoon showed a resilient team dig deep to the final whistle to win by the smallest of margins against a well organised Owenmore Gaels team.

At 10.30 this morning the Minor girls played Eastern Harps in their third game of the championship and this team showed huge back bone and worked tremendously as a team , never giving  up to the end and showed they meant business and wanted this win and it paid off with huge respect given to our younger team members who added so much to the game.

Friday night last our Minor lads played their first round of the championship at home to Molaise Gaels but were unlucky to lose by a point in a thrilling game of football. Hard luck also to our u12 boys who put up a strong second half performance in Enniscrone last Tuesday evening but the stronger team won on the night.

Tuesday night next Aug 15th is a date for your diary as our Senior Men play Killannin of Galway in the Leo Kenny Cup Final in Connacht Centre of Excellence at 8pm so please come out and support the team and management.

Congratulations to Curry’s Red Og Murphy  who was named Electric Irelands Minor Football Player of the week for his All Ireland Quarter final performance

Club Notes : Kiernan Cup Retained and u14 League County Champs

posted 9 Jul 2017, 13:04 by Tourlestrane GAA PRO

Tourlestrane retained the Kiernan cup Saturday morning when they proved too strong for St Molaise Gaels in perfect weather in Ballymote. Fifteen points separated the teams at the final whistle  and John Francis Carr was presented with the cup. The Junior men played  Shamrock Gaels Saturday evening but although goals were exchanged by both teams there were near misses some connecting with the posts and although keeper Alan Bowens made a few exceptional saves this time Tourlestrane finished the game with an 8 point deficit and were the losers on the night.

On Friday night our under 12 girls were victorious in the first round of their championship v Shamrock Gaels and also our u14 boys claimed the title of u14B League County champions when they held off a hard battling St John’s team to finish on top by 2 points. Huge congratulations to the team and Niall and David Surlis Managers and to Rian Bailey and Cian Surlis coaches also. The cavalcade around the parish with bonfires blazing was a sight to behold as everyone celebrated the future stars success.

Congratulation to Sligo u21 hurlers on their massive All Ireland Semi Final win in Markievicz Park on Saturday afternoon where the had a very convincing win over Louth. Tourlestrane were represented by Sean McVeigh Diarmuid Brennan and Gavin Feely and also Patrick Burke who is still injured.

Congratulations also to the County  u16 Girls team with Tourlestrane represented by Leonie Gaughan, Tara Walsh, Sarah Cunney Laura Surlis and Ellen Bailey. The team won an All Ireland Blitz and in the final game of 5 played, they beat Westmeath by 1/6 to 1/3 with a goal and 4 points in this result scored  by the Tourlestrane girls !!!

Another fantastic medal winner is our local club member, Padraig Maye who picked up a huge tally of 5 medals at the Irish Life Health Masters Track and Field Championshps last weekend, a gold a silver and three bronze medals so Congrats Padraig.

Tourlestrane held another successful Cul Camp this week so many thanks to all the children for attending with exceptional behaviour and the feedback is that they enjoyed it immensely. Thank you  the parents for taking them along and lastly to the coaches for making it a fun filled week of football and hurling.
