St. Mary’s Hurling Club Notes 13.03.17

by admin on 13/03/2017

County League.
The Intermediate teams first outing of the season ended with defeat to neighbours Moyle Rovers in the County League. With the campaign now off the ground, a full attendance at training is expected from all eligible players.

St. Patrick’s Parade.
With the parade taking place on Friday at 3pm, our teams shall be gathering at the centre at 14:20pm. Afterwards, there will be music provided by some of our younger members. All are welcome.

Registration Day.
March 31st is the deadline day for membership to be submitted. All players and members must be registered by this date for insurance purposes. We shall hold a registration day on Saturday 25th March in the GAA center to ensure each participant can be covered. Thanks to all who have committed already.

South Representatives.
Best of luck to our mentors and players involved this weekend with South teams taking part in the Divisional Tournaments. Details and reports of these games will be updated on our website and social media pages.

Tipp v Kilkenny.
Another cracker in the Stadium last Saturday between Tipp and Cats enthralled all those in attendance. Master of ceremonies for Kilkenny, T.J. Reid was in fine fettle until Seamus Kennedy put the shackles on him in the last ten minutes. A top class summer of action beckons.

All-Ireland Preview Night.
We shall be hosting an All-Ireland Championship Preview Night in the Clonmel Park Hotel on Saturday 20th May. The panel on the night will contain hurling stars of the past from various counties along with some present day players and will be an ideal kick-start to an action packed summer of hurling. More details available in the coming weeks.

Over the weekend a legend of Tipperary hurling passed away. Michael Maher from the Holycross club formed part of the famous Hells Kitchen back line where no ground was ceded. Michael lived in Clonmel for many years and was Chairman of the County Board and the GAA center for many years.
Also, sadly deceased is Dick Quinn, a member of the Quinn family with many links to the club and a brother to club stalwart Jimmy Quinn.
