Thomas McCurtains Hurling & Football Club Notes

August 02, 2016

Thomas McCurtains GAA Club Notes:

Both our mens teams were unlucky not to come away with something in their games last weekend. The footballers lost out to a last minute free against Eire Og on Tuesday evening in Downhills Park and came up short against a physical Tara's team on Sunday. The hurlers didn't fare much better as they lost their first championship match against Fr Murphys.

Next weekend there is only one fixture. Our footballers will be looking to bounce back strongly as they play Shalloe Pearse in the Championship in Greenford.

The Camogs will represent McCurtains, London and Britain as they take part in the World Games in Ireland next week. The GAA will host the visiting teams in a grand opening ceremony at Croke Park before the All Ireland senior hurling semi-final on August 7th. The action will take place in UCD of the course of the week before the the finals will be hosted back in Croke Park on the 11th. We wish them the best of luck.
