Notes : 
It was a winning weekend for the senior men and ladies this weekend with mighty performances put in by especially the younger crew on both panels . On Saturday evening a depleted panel available to Eamonn Gerry and Michael saw the younger panellists aided by the available experienced more senior lads put on a fine display of footballing skills to finish with a strong win over Eastern Harps and the scoreline at the full time whistle was 1/16 to 7 points . Sunday morning the girls headed to Bunninadden to take on St Nathy's senior ladies and with a slim 2 point lead at half time thanks to a fine taken  goal by Grainne Carty and both teams digging deep not wishing to forfeit the win, the second half in particular was a very pacy game . A cracking looping pass from out the field to the back post for the quick thinking Laura Surlis to run on and flick the ball past the keeper and into the net for our second goal of the day was the game clincher and we kept the safe lead to the whistle! The never say die attitude of team really paid off!  Well done to David Shauna and the girls. A speedy recovery is wished to Ellen Bailey who picked up a shoulder injury. Our minor lads played two games this weekend having had games postponed previously and were beaten by a strong St Molaise Gaels team in Grange on Friday . Sunday they played Ballymote/Bunninadden at the pitch and after trailing far behind at half time put on a valiant effort and with minutes to go caught up to just 4 points behind on a scoreline of 3/10 to 2/9 but the visitors finished well with a final goal before the end whistle to finish 4/10 to 2/9. Unlucky lads . 
Our u14 girls had a great win Tuesday at home to St Molaise Gaels in their league game on a scoreline of Tourlesteane 5-8
St Molaise Gaels: 1-3
Our u12 boys were unlucky and lost out to a stronger Enniscrone /Kilglass team tonight. 
Our future stars the u8s and u10s were in action in Castleconnor on Wednesday and well done to all !

Well done to all. 
Our hurling game was off today and  our Junior men lined out against Curry in a home game this afternoon but were unlucky and lost out by 3/4 to 2/12 when the full time whistle went. Happy Easter to all our club members from all in Tourlestrane Gaa ! 💚💛

From the Chairman!

Fellow members 

It is that time of year again for our annual fundraising quiz. This will be our third year and we are hoping to repeat the success of the previous two. It has proven to be a great family event for all our members and a night to meet some old faces and welcome new familes to our club.

Where else but BANADA Abbey Hall this Friday March 30 at 8.00pm. Full of fantastic prizes, raffles and local lore, there will also be a prize for the highest scoring children's table. I would appreciate your support of this, our new committee's first event of 2018.  Lets not settle for a Good Friday lets make it a Great Friday! Bring a friend! See you there!

Club notes

The season is getting busy now with a few games played this weekend. Our minor lads started few club wins on Friday night with a 4 point win over Owenmore Gaels in a very exciting 60 minutes of football. Next up on Saturday morning were the senior ladies who faced Eastern Harps in the spring sunshine. We came out on top in this encounter with a nice win of 3/7 to 1/4
Our u16 boys travelled to Oxfield also on Saturday morning but were beaten by a much stronger DRP team. Sunday morning saw our Junior men take to the field to start their season off with a win over Cloonacool . Both teams swapped leads after Cloonacool got off to a winning start in the first 15 minutes but a combination of our fresh younger crew starting off this year and the 'less younger' experienced lads Tourlestrane picked some nice points and we took the lead and stayed ahead seeing us taking the win at the final whistle 14 points to 10. 
Well done to Sligo with a nice win over Derry to stay in division three this afternoon. Also huge congratulations to St Attracta's Juvenile Team who won the Connacht B title during the week. The club was well represented so well done to the team and management.
Reminder of our Good Friday Family fundraising quiz night taking place again this year with great prizes to be had ! Also our Easter Camp is getting well booked so get in there and don't be disappointed ! It takes place on March 27th28th and 29th.  
We heard with sadness of the passing of Dan Tuohy  during the week . Dan was a man of many faces throughout the parish of Tourlestrane and Aclare, as he and his late wife Phil were involved in various community groups over the years and gave unselfishly of their time and talents to all. He was one of the original promoters of the successful St Patrick's Day Parade in Aclare village but the club will remember him most for Hurling .
With a strong tradition of Hurling deeply rooted in his veins from his native county Clare he managed the senior Tourlestrane Hurling team alongside the Late Martin Brennan of Rhue and proudly led the lads to win 7 senior Sligo Hurling titles . 
The club wishes to extend sympathy to Maria and Justin, to Fin and Sarena and to Dan's extended family . We also heard of the sad passing of Paddy Durcan Gorterslin Aclare, and the club extends sympathy to his wife Joan and his family . 
Ní bheidh a leitheid ann arís. Ar dheis Dé go raibh siad.
