Every week, we publish our club notes in the Avondhu newspaper, the Imokilly GAA website and our own Watergrasshill GAA website.
We are now trialling using the clubforce app to try to keep as many members as possible up to date with what's going across the club.
If there is any feedback on the notes, articles or items you would like to see, please reach out to email@example.com.
Please find below the club notes from Watergrasshill Hurling Club for week ending 17th May.
Another quiet weekend on the club front with just two results of note. Unfortunately, out intermediates lost out to a strong Blackrock side. The lads are battling hard and no doubt, they will turn the corner soon.
Our U-15’s had a great win over neighbours Lisgoold to finish off a great league campaign. The lads finished the league undefeated and now face a rematch with Lisgoold in the League Final in June. Best of luck to the boys and here’s hoping they get the result they deserve having had a very strong campaign thus far.
Go-Games have now also reached the mid-point of the season. U-7, U-8, U-9, U-10 and U-11 teams have completed multiple rounds across both football and hurling. U-7’s have completed 2 rounds, U-8’s have completed 3 rounds with the U-9, U-10 and U-11 teams having completed 5 rounds thus far. There will be a break now until the second week in August, but the Summer Leagues will kick-off for the U-9 to U-11 teams. It goes without saying that the number of games is amazing, so credit to the Go-Games planners for the co-ordination of such a massive program. But credit to the players, parents and coaches too for their dedication, without which, the Go-Games initiative would not be the success it is, so massive thanks to you all.
All-Ireland F1 in schools
Massive congratulations to our minor player Darragh Casey and his St. Colman’s college team-mates who won the recent All-Ireland F1 in schools competition. The F1 in Schools STEM Challenge is a global multi-disciplinary competition, open to all secondary schools in the island of Ireland. It challenges secondary school students to design, build and race miniature compressed air-powered Formula One cars. Student teams compete against each other in a National championship to determine Ireland’s best engineered car, Ireland’s fastest car, and Ireland’s National Champions. The challenge inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding, graphics, leadership, teamwork, media skills, finance and communication, while applying them in a practical, exciting and competitive way.
Text Service Re-launch
This year we are re-launching our supporters text messaging service as another way to keep members up-to-date with upcoming fixtures.
If you would like a weekly supporter’s message with fixtures for Watergrasshill & Glenville hurling, football, camogie and ladies football matches please contact Paud O'Neill 0879890964 or Barry Joyce 0871847017.
There is a nominal fee of €5 per year for this service.
We would also appreciate if members could share this service with those who are not on social media as we have found in previous years that this service is very beneficial for them.
There was no winner of the Lotto Jackpot this week. Numbers drawn were 8, 11, 13 & 31. Lucky dip winners are Julia O’Neill, Mary O’Brien, Leanne Loftus & Jess Swayne. Congrats to you all. Next week's jackpot is €1,900 and draw will take place Monday 30th March. Tickets are on sale in some of the village businesses like The Hut Bar, The Fir Tree, Johnny's Shop and our new Lotto stand in Ross's Centra. Tickets can also be purchased on-line via our club website (www.watergrasshillgaa.ie). The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members and supporters of the Watergrasshill GAA Club Lotto. The Club Lotto is a vital source of income for the running of all our teams within the Club and for future development of our facilities, so we ask you to please support it if you are in a position to do so. Remember, if you’re not in you can’t win.
