Garnish and Glengarriff kicked off their league seasons with a tough encounter in Cahermore yesterday. With many first team regulars unavailable, it was a great opportunity to blood some youth … and they did not disappoint.
With Matthew O’Leary on man-marking duties, Tommy O’Sullivan had a strong display in the other corner. Dylan Henshaw and Jack Andy worked the wings extremely well, whilst Finbarr Sheehan showed signs of his potential at 14! Particular congratulations to Stephen Lane on making his debut for the team.
The fundraising committee are delighted to announce the dates for tractor draw. Supplementary prizes will be raffled 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively. Our 1967 Massey Ferguson 135 will be raffled at 3pm on 6th June.
The famous 1967 Massey Ferguson 135, which has been subject to much attention over the past three months, departed Ballincollig yesterday for Cahermore. The tractor is the first prize in Garnish GAA’s 2021 fundraiser.
All tickets have been sold and the draw takes place on 6th June.
Excitement is building now – runner up prizes, including 2 nights at the Westlodge Hotel, €150 cash prize courtesy of Tadhg O’Sullivan and €100 cash voucher will be raffled in the preceding days.
The government has announced the latest measures which pave the way for a return of sport in the country. Training can resume from May 10, matches can start from June 7, although no spectators will be permitted to attend.
Based on this announcement, the Garnish team set to resume training on Friday 14th May 2021.
Beyond sport, the GAA is a linchpin in the wider community. The philanthropic nature of the club came to the fore in recent days when club chair, Eric O’Neill, presented St. Joseph’s Hospital in Castletownbere with a cheque for €6,250. Thanks to all club members who participated in our “walk” and to all who contributed generously to this endeavour.
Garnish GAA has a proud history of producing talented players but they don’t come much better than Aine Terry . Heartiest of congratulations to Aine on been named on the LGFA’s Senior Team of the Year 2021.
