Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club 10/05/2018

Leitrim Seniors – Wow – Comhghairdeachas Libh to the Leitrim team and management from everyone in Glencar Manorhamilton – Liatroma Abú. We salute the players and our players representatives James Rooney and Gary Hickey.  The atmosphere in Gaelic Park was electric and we were all nervous wrecks at home tuned into the wireless.  Special thanks to Ocean FM and sponsor John MacManus for their excellent coverage of the game in our area.  Next up is the Rossies. 

Sympathy – We offer heartfelt sympathy to Oliver and Kathleen Fitzpatrick and family following the passing of Oliver’s brother Peter in Claremorris, Co Mayo.  May He Rest in Peace.

Confirmation – Congrats to all our players who made their Confirmation over the weekend.

Division 1 and 2 League Fixtures – Our Seniors are scheduled to play Gortletteragh away this Saturday evening at 7pm and our Division 2 team are down to play Carrigallen at home on Sunday at 2 pm.  Please support. 

Senior Hurling – Our seniors lost their Dermot Molloy Hurling League semi-final at the weekend despite a gallant effort. Score Cluainín 1-10 Easkey 3-10. It was a free flowing affair with only a point separating both teams throughout until Manor lost a player to a straight red. Easkey drove on straight after netting two goals. Manor did attack the Easkey goals towards the end but it was too little too late. A huge thanks to the supporters who travelled to cheer on the team. Onwards and upwards Cluainín abú.
