Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes - 25 July 2016
The club would like to express its sympathy to former player Paddy Tinnelly and family on the passing of his father Patsy who passed away at the weekend. May he Rest in Peace.
Fixtures & Results
The Seniors lost out to St. Kiernan’s in the league in sweltering conditions at the weekend at Greenford with the final score 1-13 to 0-12. The two teams lock horns again this coming Sunday, 31st July at Greenford in the Conway Cup with throw-in at 12 noon at Greenford.
The Juniors had a convincing win in the championship on Saturday after overcoming Shalloe Pearse’s in a full-blooded affair at Greenford winning by six points in the end 2-08 to 0-06. It’s back to the league next weekend when we face St. Anthony’s at Greenford on Saturday, 30th with throw-in at 6pm at Greenford.
The TCG Ladies suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Dulwich Harps in Peckham on Sunday morning. Without a number of players and a referee, the game got off to a slow start from which it was difficult to recover from. The Gaels will come back fighting stronger after our first and only loss this year. Training as usual, Tuesday 7.30pm.
Congratulations to the London Ladies who won the All-Britain Championship Final on Saturday in Coventry and in particular to the Tir Chonaill Gaels Ladies on the panel.
Summer Social & Presentation Evening
A great night was had by all at our summer social evening at the Claddagh Ring on Saturday night. A good turnout saw the following awards presented:
Young Player of the Year – Aidan Mc Garvey
Senior Player of the Year – Liam Gavaghan
Ladies Player of the Year – Lisa Walsh
The Club Person of the Year was awarded jointly to Vince McCarthy and Jim Rice in recognition of their dedication and service to the club. The presentation was followed by an auction carried out by multi-talented club photographer Brendan Vaughan, with some fantastic prizes on offer.
The club would like to thank all club members for supporting the night as well as those who sponsored prizes for the auction and the auction prize winners. A particular word of thanks to Marie Dillon who masterminded the night and to Finbar and all at the Claddagh Ring for their generous hospitality.
