Tourlestrane Gaa express their deepest sympathies to the Davey & Marren families on the tragic passing of Mairead who was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, relative and dear friend to many. Mairead brought joy to everyone who had the pleasure to know her and a light has gone out in the community. 
We also extend our sympathies to the family of Mary Kate Walshe, Banada who passed away peacefully during the week surrounded by her loving family . Mary Kate was the mother of former Tourlestrane club officer Austin Walshe.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh siad. 

Our u16 girls played a fantastic hour of football in Collooney this afternoon and claimed an A County Chanpionship when they beat St Mary's girls by a goal at the full time whistle ! Well done to the team with Anthony Brennan and Maureen Walsh at the helm on a great season which paid off splendidly today when you claimed the sought after prize. 
Our Senior men were in Markievicz Park with the same kick off time this afternoon where they faced a hard working Tubbercurry team in the SFC semi final . The end result with the team swapping leads in the dying few minutes of a less exciting game than the one in collooney,  saw the teams level at the final whistle with a score line of 1/11 apiece and we face another meeting TBC. Some would say a lucky outcome for both teams ! 
Our Junior men played Curry Sunday morning in Bunninadden in the junior Quarter final and this time saw Tourlestrane come out on top with a win by 2/9 to 8 points. Onwards to the semi final next weekend . 
Hard luck to our u16 boys who never gave up but were beaten by a stronger St Mary's team this afternoon in their B County Final in Scardan having had a strong win last Tuesday night against Shamrock Gaels . Congratulations to St Mary's county champions.
Commiserations also to our Feile boys beaten by a stronger Enniscrone/Kilglass team last Thursday . 
The club are having a Golden Jubilee celebration of the Tourlestrane Minor county champion winning teams of 1967 and 1968 next weekend October 14thin The Yeats Hotel in Curry and it promises to be a great night of reminiscing !

After a minutes silence for Mairead Davey RIP Our Senior men faced Calry/St Josephs this afternoon in Markievicz Park in the quarter final of the SFC and it ended up a battle to beat the wind as well as each other with a strong breeze at the park. We went in at the midway mark ahead by 8 points to 3 but some could say the scores should have been higher for both teams. Still with all to play for in the second half Tourlestrane took their scores and pulled away and eventually ended the game playing against 13 men and came away with a ticket to the semi final stages v Tubbercurry on a scoreline of 16 points to 9.

Following this game we travelled over to Bunninadden to see the Minor lads play Ballymote/Bunninadden in their rescheduled match where once again today the wind played the game with the two teams. The host teams were much stronger and broke away with a very sound lead at the half time whistle. Not to be beaten yet our lads came out and battled hard to narrow the gap with some well placed goals and points exchanged by both the teams not willing to let go and finally going into the fourth minute of added injury time announced by Gus Chapman referee, and with Tourlestrane 4 points behind our lads were awarded a penalty which Mark Lundy scored well,  unlucky for our Minors having fought back the whistle blew and Ballymote/Bunninadden won by a point.

Friday night last we witnessed a very exciting game of football played under lights at home when our Minor girls and Drumcliff/Rosses Point finished level after swapping leads on a number of occasions throughout the match. Extra time although planned was not an option due to a power outing at the final whistle so a replay was the decided outcome in the near future. Final score Tourlestrane 3-7 DRP 2-10.

Our u16 boys were beaten by Calry/St Josephs in Scardan on Thursday night.

The club wishes to extend sympathy to the family of Annie O Hara Tullinaglug RIP who passed away during the week. May she rest in peace.

Our Senior lads had a comprehensive win against Coolaney/Mullinabreena in a rain drenched pitch in Curry with some torrential downpours throughout. Kilcoyne Park was deemed unplayable so the venue was changed after a pitch inspection early in the day. Half time saw the teams at 5 points to 2 in our favour and our lads doubled their scores in the second thirty mins and held the opposition scoreless to leave the result at Tourleestrane 10 points Coolaney Mullinabreena 2 points.

Friday night last saw our minor hurlers clock up a great win v Tubbercurry with the score at the final whistle at 4/13 to 2/8. A speedy recovery is wished to Cian Durkin who sustained a knee injury in the game.

The u14 boys were unlucky in their A1 Football Final in Scardan on Thursday evening and lost out to a stronger Drumcliff/Rosses Point team and our u14 girls were beaten by Eoghan Rua in their game on Tuesday evening also. We hope Lauren Normanly who missed the game Tuesday due to an ankle injury she picked up last weekend makes a full recovery soon.

Our U 14 Hurlers played a well fought close encounter with Tubbercurry on Tuesday night. This game ended in a draw in the final moments of the game when Tubbercurry equalised.

By now you will all be aware of a local upcoming fundraising event with ladies the like who have never been seen outside of a Miss World pageant!!!!Support Bros of Tralee fundraiser and four very worthy charities : Temple Street Children’s Hospital, Hugh’s House, Friends of Sligo University Hospital and the Rotunda Foundation. This is an all ticket event so make sure you get yours in time. 

Best of luck to all our club students heading back to college in the coming weeks and also best wishes to all our club Junior Certs receiving their results this week.
