It is great to see all the different grades and teams so busy at the moment. Many games are being played with great successes recorded. A big well done to all in the Juvenile section and the Lgfa section. The club are delighted to see so many members enjoying sporting activities during these strange times.
Our Juniors played some lovely hurling and were very unlucky to bow out of the championship. The Intermediates have been going from strength to strength and await their meeting with Dunhill in the Eastern Final.Hopefully by the time you are reading this we will have some good news.
The club have recently started a new initiative for the ladies in our community. Drop along to Tom Cheasty Park on Friday evenings at 7.30pm and join in this non competitive fun. The feedback from the ladies who have already been is very positive and word on the street is that is good for body and soul. To join in you just need to become a non playing member for a €25 yearly membership.
We are certainly very talented in our area and I am delighted to let you know about other published author in our midst. Mr. James Dunphy of Carrickphilip has launched his book “The Emigrant”. At a cost of just €15 the book is available from local shops and I’m sure that the guys in The Sweep could sort a copy for you too. We wish James very best of luck with his publication and look forward to a read.
We send our warmest congratulations to local man Scott Searson from Gotaclode who was recently part of the Villa team who were crowned Munster Youth Cup Champions. Goalie Scott has been having an excellent season and this was certainly a well deserved crown . I know that mam and dad Shay and Edel and sister Amber are very proud indeed but that bright light you see high in the skies that is the smiling beam of the great Jimmy Searson so proud of his grandson.
