Hard luck to the Se­niors who lost to Rath­new in the Di­vi­sion 1 League. Dunlavin put in a good per­for­mance and it was even stevens at half-time with a great goal scored by Gary Allen.

KNOCK­ANANNA

thank ev­ery­one who sup­ported and helped them with the re­cent bed push from Hack­et­stown to Knock­ananna.

Martina Whe­lan, also known as Win­nie the Pooh, was out in force again, and with her help ha­rass­ing mo­torists and the busi­nesses in Hack­et­stown, and along with the cabaret in The Wagons, we raised €650.

The kids en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and fair play to them as most of the older ones walked the dis­tance in mon­soon like con­di­tions.

Thanks also to the par­ents for minding our um­brel­las and keep­ing them safe in their cars as they drove be­hind us all the way to the vil­lage, en­sur­ing a safe jour­ney for all.

It was also a great few weeks for our Gaelic teams with Knock­ananna Ju­nior ‘A’ team hav­ing a fan­tas­tic win in the league against Bray in Aughrim.

This re­sult en­sures their safety in Di­vi­sion 3 for an­other year and also gives them a chance to chase pro­mo­tion.

Mat­tie Forde, the former Wex­ford player, trained the lads last Wed­nes­day night for an hour and will be back again over the course of the sum­mer.

What is very no­tice­able is the amount of kids who are at­tend­ing the adult training ses­sions. This is great to see and long may it con­tinue.

On Fri­day, May 27, the Na­tional School girls were in­vited into a tour­na­ment in Donard. They played eight games, win­ning seven, and draw­ing one. Some achieve­ment as we only have 11 girls be­tween fifth and sixth class. Also the third and fourth class boys won the Shield in the Clon­more Tour­na­ment, beat­ing Kil­com­mon in the fi­nal after ex­tra-time.

EIRE OG GREY­STONES EN­NISKERRY

Fri­day week with a five-point win after a typ­i­cally hard fought en­counter last night.

Played in bril­liant con­di­tions, we made a great start with two early points. We lead 0-4 to 0-1 mid­way through the half but the lo­cals drew level be­fore the break when the turn­ing point came on the stroke of half-time when Anto O’Neill goaled to give us a lead (1-4 to 0-4) that we were never to re­lin­quish.

The sec­ond half proved to be a cagey af­fair with both sides hav­ing scor­ing chances but fail­ing to con­vert them. We even­tu­ally put the game to bed with some well worked points fin­ished by O’Neill and Gavin Bar­ton gave us a well mer­ited vic­tory on the night.

In a very solid, bat­tling per­for­mance from goal­keeper Ian Kir­wan to the re­turn­ing Mark Tyn­dal at 15 as well as the subs who all did their jobs when in­tro­duced, it would be hard to pick out any in­di­vid­u­als.

Scor­ers on the night were Gavin Bar­ton (0-5), Anto O’Neill (1-2), Jack Con­roy (0-1). Well done to Alan, John, Dara and all the squad and many thanks to all the sup­port­ers who trav­elled down and gave us great vo­cal sup­port on the night.

Ladies Foot­ball League - Kil­bride v En­niskerry - We trav­elled across the Sal­ly­gap last Wed­nes­day night and came home with the two points after an en­ter­tain­ing, high scor­ing game.

Fit­ness shin­ing through in the end as we were all even at half-time.

Great work from He­len Kir­wan and again from the Kearns sis­ters work­ing hard to get the ball from the backs to the for­wards. Tara Brady also had a stormer and get­ting on the score board. Ex­el­lent all round per­for­mance on the night against a young, tal­ented Kil­bride side.

Lotto - Win­ning num­bers on May 30 were 24, 26, 28, 31. Bonus was 34. No jack­pot win­ner, one match three num­bers re­ceived €500. Jack­pot on June 7 stands at €5, 500.

Thanks to all buy­ers and sell­ers of club lotto tick­ets for con­tin­ued sup­port.

Con­grats to En­niskerry YC on their Tom Cullen Cup win last Tuesday ver­sus Inchicore Ath­letic.

Best of luck to all stu­dents in En­niskerry sit­ting ex­ams in the next cou­ple of weeks from all in the club.

Ju­nior Hurl­ing League - Avon­dale 2-12, Kilmac/ En­niskerry 0-6 – The hurlers trav­elled to Rath­drum on Wed­nes­day, down a few bodies due to in­juries, and put up a valiant dis­play be­fore giv­ing best to an ex­pe­ri­enced home side.

Play­ing against the wind in the first pe­riod we bat­tled well and went in only 0-9 to 0-2 in ar­rears at the break.

We had plenty of pos­ses­sion in the sec­ond pe­riod but the goal we needed never came for us de­spite some close calls, one a close in flick from Mick Burns that skimmed the bar and also a solo ef­fort from James Cahill that just went past the wrong side of the post after a mazy run from mid­field.

All in all an­other bat­tling, solid per­for­mance all round with Mick Byrne, Ross Lally, Ge­off and James Cahill and Ja­son Doyle the pick of the bunch.

Team: Mick Byrne, John Flynn, Ross Lally, Gar­ret Power, Nathan Cronin, Clin­ton Donoghue, John Driver, James Cahill(0-3), Ger Driver, Christy O’Toole, Christy Fox, Ge­off Cahill (0-1), Mick Burns (0-1), Ja­son Doyle (0-1), Ja­son Mur­ray. Subs: Gary Ka­vanagh, Jim D’Arcy, Barry Driver.

County Foot­ball League Di­vi­sion 3 - New­cas­tle 0-6, En­niskerry 1-8 - Foot­ballers picked up an­other brace of points on their trav­els when they came away from Healy Park in New­cas­tle last will be able to ef­fect a turn­about in the team’s form within this time con­straint.

Un­der-14 foot­ball - In­for­ma­tion on the ex­ploits of these boys on the Gaelic field are some­what sparse so faute de mieux one is happy to re­port that three of their num­ber, Joseph Pren­der­gast, Dar­ragh Rush and James Ni­chol­son were mem­bers of the Grey­stones ath­let­ics team which re­cently won the Le­in­ster 4x100 me­tres re­lay in this age group. Maith sibh a bhuachaillí!

Un­der-12 girls - Thank­fully the cailíní are less in­clined than the boys to hide their light un­der a bushel so the notes are reg­u­larly in­formed of their progress.

On Tuesday these girls trav­elled to Round­wood to play An Tochar. After a very en­joy­able and ex­cit­ing con­test the teams fin­ished level on a score of 3-2 each.

It was 2-1 all at the break. On the night the man­age­ment was pre­sented with a dif­fi­cult lo­gis­ti­cal prob­lem. There were 11 subs and with the game be­ing only 25 min­utes each half it was a mind-wreck­ing ex­er­cise try­ing to en­sure that all the girls got rea­son­able game time.

Un­der-8 boys - On Sun­day some of our Un­der-8 foot­ballers took part in a very en­joy­able blitz in Kil­macud Crokes. They were un­der the stew­ard­ship of Gary Le­hane and Diar­maid O’Boyle. The photos of the oc­ca­sion on the Éire Óg Facebook page show them hav­ing great fun with Sam Maguire.

Ladies foot­ball - The All-Ire­land Lidl League com­prises four di­vi­sions and at the end of the league sea­son an All-Star team is cho­sen in each of these. Wick­low com­pete in Di­vi­sion 4. Comh­gaird­eachas to our own Lorna Fus­cia­rdi who has been nom­i­nated at left-half back in the Di­vi­sion 4 team. She will be pre­sented with her award on Wed­nes­day evening I bPáirc an Cró­caigh.

Last week’s (Mon­day, May 30) win­ning lotto num­bers were 1, 24, 26, and 28. There were no win­ners so the jack­pot for Tuesday, June 8, was a not-to-be-sneezed-at €8,400.

Strictly Come Éire Óg, the club’s major fund-raiser of the year, takes place this Fri­day in Killiney Cas­tle Ho­tel. Last year’s Strictly at the same venue was ac­corded the ac­co­lade of “a great night” by all who at­tended. As a re­sult, tick­ets for Fri­day are very much in de­mand but there may be some avail­able from John at 086-8280261.

The in­ten­sity of their training has been such that the Strictly Grey­stones dancers, to whom we are ex­tremely grate­ful, are all on their sec­ond pair of danc­ing shoes. They are hop­ing that these will last them through to show night on a rapidly ap­proach­ing 10th.

Some straws of hope drifted into the per­spec­tive of the so-called weaker coun­ties, which un­for­tu­nately count Wick­low among their num­ber, with West­meath’s re­cent vic­tory over Kilkenny in the Un­der-21 hurl­ing cham­pi­onship.

Dare one ask if this to­tally unan­tic­i­pated out­come is a her­ald that the old or­der changeth? An oc­cur­rence (with apolo­gies to the black and am­ber ad­her­ents) which in the minds of many of the hurl­ing fra­ter­nity coun­try­wide is de­voutly to be wished.

There was also good news for hurl­ing within the county with Cill Man­táin’s win over Derry in the Christy Ring cham­pi­onship. A vic­tory which means that Wick­low has avoided the dreaded drop to the Nicky Rackard group.

One is happy to re­port that a num­ber of Grey­stones hurlers played an im­por­tant part in this suc­cess. Dan O’Neill kept a clean sheet in goal while Stephen Kelly (full-back) and Peter Keane (right half back) were part of a very solid back di­vi­sion. Anto Byrne came on after the break and scored a point.

Not so good news how­ever was the trounc­ing of our se­niors on Sun­day morn­ing at home by Glenealy.

Watch­ing on the side­line as Grey­stones played a poor sec­ond fid­dle all over the field one was prompted to para­phrase the ques­tion put to Cae­sar and in­quire, “Oh! mighty hurlers, how have you slumped so low?”

There are only four weeks to the first round of the SHC so there is a lot of work to be done if we are to be com­pet­i­tive in this com­pe­ti­tion. How­ever, the man­age­ment is op­ti­mistic that it
