A bit­ter wind blew down from Kil­ca­van Hill and Gerry Flem­ing warned of sub zero tem­per­a­tures but that didn’t stop Carnew’s first train­ing ses­sion of the new year go­ing ahead last Fri­day night. Forty or so hard souls braved the Arc­tic con­di­tions to be put through their paces by Fran Fitzhenry. It did not take long for the steam to rise as the ses­sion was a tough one and more of the same will stand to our lads in the com­ing months. Fran’s all new back­room team of John Joe My­ers and Gra­ham Keogh were also un­veiled to the play­ers. The two lads were in­volved as play­ers up un­til this year so they know the panel very well which should help the new man­age­ment struc­ture mix well. We wish them well for the long sea­son.


Carnew are due to be­gin their de­fence of the Se­nior foot­ball league against AGB next Sun­day. This game is still to be con­firmed but hope­fully will go ahead.


Satur­day saw the Mi­nors back train­ing early also as they are out in the Gorey District hurl­ing league next Sun­day morn­ing away against Ferns. This early sea­son com­pe­ti­tion is a good plat­form for our young team to build up some match prac­tice at a quiet time of the year.


There was no win­ner of the club lotto draw held last Mon­day week. The num­bers drawn were 11, 13, 16 and 26. The four lucky dip win­ners of €50 were Betty Gor­don, Billy Mol­loy, Lynn McGee and Esso Gorey Staff. The ticket sales were again good.
