Thomas McCurtain's Hurling and Football Club Notes

September 05, 2016

Thomas McCurtains GAA Club Notes:

Unfortunately our Footballers couldn't overcome a half time deficit against Tir Chonaill Gaels. Played in tough conditions it was a game for defences as both teams found it tough going forward. This was reflected in the full time score of 9 points to 7. Best of luck to Tir Chonaill in the Championship Semi Finals. 

On the back of their success in the Junior grade earlier this year the Camogie team played in their first Senior Championship game on Saturday against Croydon. McCurtains started strong and played well for long periods but It wasnt to be as Croydon's experience at this level paid off in the end. 

This weekend the Camogie girls travel to Birmingham to play Shire Gaels and the Hurlers play St Gabriel's 'B' in East Lane on Saturday. Then its back to Goodmayes on Sunday as the Ladies Footballers play Fr. Murphy's in the League. A win for the Hurlers will see them through to the Championship Semi Final.

Finally commiserations to ladies footballers Catherine Barrett and Kellie Carr and the London Ladies who lost to Antrim in the All Ireland Semi-final last weekend.
