Easkey Sea Blues GAA Club

​​​CLUB NOTES - 16th April 2018


Our senior team suffered a disappointing 3-5 to 2-12 defeat to St Johns in Easkey on Saturday evening. Next up is local rivals St Farnans in St Farnans Community Park next Saturday 21st April at 6.30 pm for round 4.

5k/10k /10 Mile Fun Run
The Fun Run was a wonderful success again this year. Over 255 people took part in the run in sunny- but windy conditions in Easkey on Sunday. Take a look on the Easkey Castle 5k/10k/10mile Fun Run page on Facebook to see the pictures from the event. 

Senior Hurling
All hurling in Easkey was called off at the weekend due to the passing of Donal Kirby, who contributed so much to West Sligo hurling over the last number of years, including the setting up of Western Gaels in the late 90s. He was the assistant secretary of the Sligo County Board at the time. We extend our deepest sympathies to Donal’s wife Christine, his son Daniel, daughter Emma and the extended family at this sad time. 

The Easkey/ Enniscrone-Kilglass recorded a win by walk over against Calry/St Joseph’s on Monday, April 16th. Next up is an away trip to Owenmore Gaels in Connolly Park on Monday 30th April for Round 4.

The Easkey/Enniscrone-Kilglass minor team suffered a dissapointing 4-18 to 3-8 defeat to Curry last Friday evening. Next up for the minors is Eastern Harps on Tuesday 17th April in Quigabar at 6.30pm.
