Easkey Sea Blues GAA Club
CLUB NOTES - 24th July 2018
Our Junior team beat local rivals St Farnans in the final round of the division 4 league on a scoreline of 2-9 to 3-10 down in St Farnans last night (Monday the 23rd).
Our Senior hurlers lost to Naomh Eoin in round 3 of the championship last Saturday on a scoreline of 2-15 to 3-14. Easkey have no game now until the 6th of August for round 5 of the competition, which is against Tubbercurry.
The Easkey/Kilglass- Enniscrone minor team were beaten by St Molaise Gaels in Quigabar in the first round of the championship by a point, 3-7 to 3-8 last Tursday. The lads conceded 2 late goals after leading by 5 points entering the last few minutes of the match and therefore will be bitterly disappointed to have lost. Next up for the minors is an away fixture with Ballymote/Bunninadden next Friday 27th at 7pm.
The Easkey/Ennsicrone- Kilglass u16s drew with Tourlestrane on Monday the 23rd July in round 2 of the championship. The game finished 2-12 apiece. Next up is Shamrock Gaels out in Shamrock Gaels next Monday 30th at 7pm for round 3.
A special thank you to former Kilkenny coach and selector Martin Fogarty who came to our club last Friday and Saturday, to impart some of his experience and knowledge on both our young hurlers and coaches . We really appreciate him taking the time to visit West Sligo.
The Easkey/ St Farnans minors take on Benbulben Gaels in round 1 of the hurling championship on Thursday 26th at 7pm.
