Easkey Sea Blues GAA Club
CLUB NOTES - 12th June 2018
Our seniors performed very well in a convincing 3-11 to 10 points win over Calry/St Joseph on Sunday in Easkey in the Division 2 league. Next up is Enniscrone in our final game in the Benson Cup, down for 1pm in Easkey on Sunday the 17th June.
Next up is Castleconnor in the Division 4 league, which was moved from last Saturday to Tuesday evening (12th ) in St Brendan`s Community Park at 8pm.
Sean Calleary ( R.I.P )
It was with great sadness to hear of the passing of former Sea Blues player Sean Calleary. Sean played at full forward in the last Senior County Championship winning team in 1966.
Sean married Easkey native Doris Brogan and our deepest sympathies go to Doris, his children John, Conall, Dara and Síofra, his brother in law Eamon Brogan and to all in his large circle of family and friends. Sean was inducted to Easkey GAA's Hall of Fame when introduced to the crowd during half time of the 2016 Senior County Final in Markievicz Park in to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Easkey's great win.
Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a-amam dílis.
The club would like to thank Paudi Butler for taking the time to come down and visit Easkey GAA last weekend, where he gave invaluable hurling training to the u8s right up to the Easkey Senior team and also to the Sligo u17 County team.
