Club Notes - 21st October

Covid Update
On Monday the government announced that the country was returning to Level 5 restrictions. At the time of writing we are unsure what this means for us as a club. Once we fully briefed on the implications we will make publish a statement to the membership.
Please keep an eye on our Social Media accounts.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The 3rd draw took place last week. Unfortunately we had no winner. The next draw will take place in ealry November. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place on Monday night last. Ger Walsh was drawn and picked number 2. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,800. Marion & Anthony and Paddy & Damien also won €25.

Club Notes - 14th October

 
Covid Update
Following on from the communication from Croke Park last week suspending matches, the club took the decision on Thursday last to temporarily suspend all playing related activity. This was due to a large uptick in cases locally and as a club we felt continued collective training posed too high a risk to the wider community. These measures will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and once the situation stabilises we hope to have our players back in the field.
We understand the frustration that this will inevitably cause amongst the membership, but in these unprecedented times there can be no compromise when it comes to the safety of our players and by extension our family and friends. This cloud will pass but until then we’d ask you all to remain vigilant and continue to adhere to the published guidelines. We need to pull together as a club, a parish and a community to get through this.
 
We will of course provide updates as they become available.
 
Senior Football
The County Board issued a directive this week that the senior final versus Rathgormack will take place only after the Waterford senior intercounty teams have finished their respective seasons. There will be at a minimum a 2 week period allowed for preparation and so at the very least we are looking at a December date.
 
Deise Draw 2020
The 3rd draw will take place in this week. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.
 
Jack The Joker
The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Laurance Power was drawn and picked number 17. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,700. James Cullinane and Shane Hallahan also won €25.
This week’s draw, and all draws until further notice will take place in the clubhouse.

Club Notes - 7th October

Covid Update

We received word from Croke Park Monday lunchtime that all GAA games suspended with immediate effect. Whilst obviously disappointed given the upcoming County Final we will of course adhere stringently to the new guideline as the safety of players and members is our number 1 priority.  We will of course provide updates as they become available.

 

Senior Football

The Senior footballers put in a fine display against The Nire last Saturday to book a place in the County Final. On what was a perfect evening for football both teams produced an exciting game with the result in doubt right up to the end. After a slow start we began to grow into the game as the 1st half progressed and then flew out of the block in the 2nd half and established a game winning lead before the water break.

We now face off against Rathgormack in a repeat of last year’s final. This was of course originally fixed for Walsh Park next Saturday, but as outlined above the game cannot now go ahead. As of now we don’t know when the game will take place but as stated above we’ll provide updates as and when they become available.


Deise Draw 2020

The 3rd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

 

Jack The Joker

The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Neil Moore was drawn and picked number 11. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,600. Evan Collins and Michael O Halloran also won €25.

Club Notes - 30th September

Covid Update

On Thursday last a member of our senior football team informed the club that he was awaiting a Covid test as he was classified as a close contact of a person who had tested positive. The club committee convened that evening and made the decision to suspend all club activity for a 48-hour period. As a club we have a duty of care to protect the wellbeing of all our players and members and this decision was taken wholly on that basis. Thankfully the test returned negative and activity has returned to normal. We’re of course delighted that this was the outcome, but it does serve as a potent reminder of the ongoing risks and we’d appeal to everyone to remain vigilant.

 

Senior Football

Given the circumstances outlined above the County Semi Final versus The Nire scheduled for last Saturday was postponed. The game has been re-fixed for next Saturday in Fraher Field with a throw in time of 7.00pm. This will undoubtedly be a very stern test and we wish Lar and all the team the very best of luck.

As per current Government guidelines the club will be restricted to 100 supporters on the night. The game will however be streamed live. Please see the Waterford County Board website for details.

 

Deise Draw 2020

The 3rd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

 

Jack The Joker

The ever-popular Jack The Joker draw took place in Minnies on Monday night last. Joe Cleary was drawn and picked number 25. This however wasn’t the Joker but he did win €50. Consequently, the jackpot rolls on to next week and will be €3,500. John Clancy and Paddy King also won €25.

As per current Government guidelines the club will be restricted to 100 supporters on the night. Any member who wishes to apply for a ticket please have your name with Neil Moore or Jonathan O'Donovan by 1.00pm on Thursday.

Championship 2020
The highlight of the week was the performance of our Senior footballers who put in a fine performance last Sunday afternoon in defeating Clashmore. As is the nature of this year’s championship there is no time to rest on our laurels as we move forward to the Quarter final next weekend. Here Ring will provide the opposition with throw in Fraher Field Sunday afternoon at 3.00pm. Best of luck to Lar and his team.
Unfortunately, the news was not so good for the Intermediate and Junior teams who both exited their respective championships. Thanks to all involved for their efforts in what were difficult circumstances.

Deise Draw 2020
The 2nd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

Hard Luck
The Junior camogie were out of luck in their County Final versus The Brickies last Saturday. Whilst obviously disappointed all involved can take tremendous heart from their efforts this year.
Congratulations
On behalf of all in the club we’d like to pass on our congratulations to Sean O Hare and Deirdre Coleman on their marriage last weekend. Sean has worn the jersey with distinction for many years and of course was captain of the senior team that won the championship in 2011. We wish them both many years of happiness.

Championship
The 2020 football championships kicked off last weekend with all 3 of our adult teams in action. First into the fray were the Senior team who put in a solid hour and saw off a determined Ardmore challenge on a score line of 3-17 to 1-07. Bigger tests lie ahead and on Sunday next Clashmore provide the opposition in what should be a proper championship tussle. On Sunday the Intermediate and Junior A teams were in action and despite putting in commendable performances both had to give best to Modeligo and Kilgobnet respectively. As is the nature of this year’s championship structure there is no time for retrospection, and both are straight back into the fray. The Juniors play Tallow on Thursday whilst the Intermediates have a do or die tussle against our old friends from across the bridge on Saturday. We wish all involved the very best of luck.   

Deise Draw 2020
The 2nd draw will take place in the coming weeks. As this is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

Club Notes - 26th August


Minor Hurling
A surreal atmosphere enveloped the Fraher Field last Wednesday evening when our minor hurlers faced off against Ballygunner in the County Final. Due to the updated government direction on Tuesday this game was played behind closed doors. Conditions weren’t wholly conducive to hurling but it is a credit to both teams that they served up a high-quality game full of skill and drama. Ultimately, we were to be disappointed but the lads can be more than proud of their display and their performances throughout the year.
Hard luck to all involved but focus switched immediately to football with a hectic schedule of 3 games in the next week.

Deise Draw 2020
Just a reminder once again that the revised Deise Draw is kicking off on this Wednesday, August 26th. As it is one of our primary fundraising streams, we’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member or promoter if you haven’t already done so.

Jack The Joker

Championship 2020
In what can only be described as a disappointing weekend our three adult hurling teams departed their respective championships. We’d like to thank the players and mentors for the massive effort put in over the season. We’ll regroup over the winter and be back next year with renewed enthusiasm. However, we can’t afford to dwell on if’s and buts and maybes, focus switches immediately to football and with Senior, Intermediate and Junior teams fielding it will be all systems go for the next few weeks.

Minor Hurling
The minor hurlers pit in an excellent performance last Thursday in Carrickbeg to defeat De La Salle 0-19 – 01-09. We know face Ballygunner in the County Final in Fraher Field on Wednesday 19th August at 6.30. We wish all involved the very best of luck. Just a reminder that this game is all ticket.
There is no let up for the lads then as on Monday the 24th we begin our football campaign with a game versus St Pats / Naomh Brid.

Championship 2020 Tickets
We play Lismore in the County Senior Hurling Championship Quarter Final on Sunday evening next, 16th August at 6:15pm in Fraher Field. As with previous matches, our ticket allocation is extremely limited and undoubtedly demand will far outstrip supply. Any fully paid up adult member who would like to enter the draw for a ticket must give their name to the secretary, Jonathan O'Donovan by 1:00pm on Thursday, 13th August. Only one ticket per member. All tickets will be charged at full price and there are no concessions.

At time of writing we do not have fixture details for the Junior B Western Semi Final. If similar restrictions are in place details will be posted on our Club Zap. Likewise, if the Junior A hurlers qualify for their semi-final.

Senior Hurling
Our senior hurlers played De La Salle on Saturday last in our final group game. On a blistering evening both teams performed admirably to put on a tough honest championship encounter. Although we were on the wrong side of a 3-15 to 1-15 score line there were plenty of positives to take from the performance. Following our victory over Ballysaggart we finished second in the group and we now play Lismore in the quarter final on Sunday next in Fraher Field in what is sure to be another tough encounter. Best of luck to the lads.
Again, we will remind you that whilst tickets are limited, this game will be streamed live. Details are available in the Waterford Co Board website. Of course, nothing beats being there but this is an excellent initiative by all involved affording all who want to see the game the opportunity to do so.

Junior Hurling
The Junior B hurlers took on Ballyduff in our own club grounds on Friday last in their second group. This was a true championship test and the team showed great fighting spirit throughout and just came up short in the end with the final score being 1-19 to 2-15. We have however qualified for the Western semi-final against Fourmilewater. Although there are no fixture details to hand at the moment it is expected to take place next weekend. Once we receive confirmation it will be posted on Club Zap and the club website.

The Junior A hurlers are in action this evening (Monday) where a win over Kilrossanty will see them qualify for the Western semi-final.

Minor Hurling
The minors continued their fine form with a good 1-17 to 2-11 victory over Clonea last Wednesday evening. We now progress to a County semi-final versus De La Salle this coming Thursday.

Deise Draw 2020
Just a reminder once again that the revised Deise Draw will kick off on August 26th. Over the coming weeks we will be making a big effort in this regard as it is one of our primary fundraising streams. We’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member.

Senior Hurling
We finally had our 1st senior championship outing last Saturday when Ballysaggart provided the opposition in Fraher Field. A solid, workmanlike and overall excellent team performance saw us run out winners on a score line of 2-23 to 1-06. This Saturday we play De La Salle in what is sure to be a stiffer test. Throw in is at 6.30pm in Walsh Park.
Again, we will remind you that whilst tickets are limited, this game will be streamed live. Details are available in the Waterford Co Board website. Of course, nothing beats being there but this is an excellent initiative by all involved affording all who want to see the game the opportunity to do so.

Junior Hurling
The Junior A hurlers took on Brickey Rangers in Dungarvan club grounds on the Bank Holiday Monday. Unfortunately, we came out on the wrong side of a 1-15 to 0-12 score line.
We are back in action next Sunday at 12.00 noon against Kilrossanty in Bushy Park.

The Junior B hurlers are back in action on Friday in our own field at 7.00pm when Ballyduff will provide the opposition. A win will see us top the group so hopefully the lads can put in a big performance.

Minor Hurling
A fine first half performance set the minor hurlers up for an excellent 2-19 to 2-09 victory over St. Pats/Naomh Brid at the club grounds last Saturday. This championship continues on Wednesday 5th August when we travel to Clonea for a 7.30pm throw in.

Deise Draw 2020
Just a reminder once again that the revised Deise Draw will kick off on August 26th. Over the coming weeks we will be making a big effort in this regard as it is one of our primary fundraising streams. We’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member.

Jack The Joker

Club Notes - 29th July


Championship 2020 Tickets
Our senior hurlers begin their championship campaign on Saturday evening next, 1st August against Ballysaggart in Fraher Field. Due to Covid-19 restrictions on outdoor gatherings, the club has received 45 tickets for this game. Should applications exceed demand, a draw will take place for the tickets. Only fully paid up members are eligible to enter the draw and there is a maximum of one ticket per member. If any member is interested in entering the draw, please submit your name to secretary, Jonathan O'Donovan by 1:00pm on Thursday, 30th July. Tickets cost €10 and there are no concessions.

Also, the following weekend, we play De La Salle in Walsh Park. The criteria for applying for tickets is the same. Please submit your name to the secretary by 1:00pm on Thursday, 6th August.

Finally, our Junior 'A' hurlers play Brickey Rangers on Bank Holiday Monday, 3rd August at 3:30pm in Dungarvan Club Grounds. Anyone wishing to apply for a ticket for this game should contact club chairman, Neil Moore by 1:00pm on Thursday, 30th July.

Senior Hurling
As stated above our Senior hurlers finally get their championship campaign underway when we face off against Ballysaggart this Saturday in Fraher Field at 7.00pm. Preparations have gone well, and we wish Laurence and his team all the best.
Whilst tickets are limited, we would remind supporters that this game will be streamed live. Details are available in the Waterford Co Board website. Of course, nothing beats being there but this is an excellent initiative by all involved affording all who want to see the game the opportunity to do so.

Junior Hurling
The last of our adult hurling teams to see championship action will be our Junior A hurlers who take on Brickey Ranger in Dungarvan club grounds on the Bank Holiday Monday at 3.30pm. This is a championship we went well in last year and we wish Neil Moore and all the lads the very best of luck.
Again, tickets will be limited so please apply if you are interested in attending as per the instructions above.

Deise Draw 2020
Just a reminder once again that the revised Deise Draw will kick off on August 26th. Over the coming weeks we will be making a big effort in this regard as it is one of our primary fundraising streams. We’d appeal to all our members and supporters to purchase a ticket from any committee member.

Jack The Joker
Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions we have been forced to push back the relaunch of the ever-popular Jack The Joker. This will now return on the weekend ending 09th August. We will be picking up where we left off on with a Jackpot of €2,800.
