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.

The weeks notes

Notes from the week : 

We got off to winning ways last Monday night with the u 12 boys who had a super game and a great 3 point win over Carly/St Joseph's down in Ballinode. 

Tuesday saw our u14 girls out in Ballintogher against St Michaels and with great scores came away with a win also . 

Friday night at home the Junior men played host to St Mary's in the pitch and came out the winners on the night winning 1/16 to St Mary's 1/6. 

Our u12 girls played a tough game in Markievicz Park in their league final v CT Gaels on Saturday but were beaten by a stronger side on the day . It was a fantastic achievement for these band of youngsters to reach the final considering 2/3 of the team are u10 girls so well done to them and their managers . 

Today our senior men played St Molaise Gaels in the league at home and had a comprehensive win across all the positions with a final score of 6/12 to 4 points . 

Congratulations to our local NS Drimina who are all Ireland Champions in NS Soccer tournament played in the Aviva this week !
