And, the fol­low­ing morn­ing, Sun­day, July 3, there will be a spon­sored walk in Tom­nafinnogue Woods at noon, also in aid of the Camo­gie Club. An ideal op­por­tu­nity to walk off any cob­webs from the night be­fore!


Con­grat­u­la­tions to our Un­der-14s who won the fi­nal in their sec­tion of the Féile on Sun­day morn­ing in Tip­per­ary. They won their two games on Fri­day evening against Eire Og An­nacarthy and Saviours of Water­ford, their game on Satur­day morn­ing against Lat­tin, Tip­per­ary, was won and they then played the quar­ter-fi­nal against Bal­ly­var­ley which the won well and played Fethard in the fi­nal, win­ning 2-13 to 1-5, well done lads.

The Ju­nior hurlers won against Kil­te­gan on Wed­nes­day and play Fer­gal Ogs on this Wed­nes­day.

The foot­ballers won against Avoca and play Ti­na­hely on Thurs­day.

The In­ter­me­di­ates play A.R.P. on Fri­day evening in Arklow

The se­niors play Bray on Sun­day evening at 6.30pm

The Un­der-12s played Avon­dale on Mon­day and the Un­der-14s play North Wick­low Gaels on Wed­nes­day in Bal­li­nakill. AUGHRIM Train­ing con­tin­ues Tues­days and Fri­days at 8pm. Need all to at­tend, no ex­cuses, cham­pi­onship ap­proach­ing shortly.

Hard luck to Robert and the Wick­low team last Satur­day against Car­low.

Well done to Ian Clancy and Eanna Owens who were mem­bers of the Wick­low Un­der-17 team who won the Celtic Chal­lenge Cup on Satur­day.


The com­bined Aughrim/Ti­na­hely team rep­re­sented Wick­low in Di­vi­sion 6 of the Féile last week­end. They got off to a flyer on Fri­day evening beat­ing Naomh Brid, Water­ford, by 0-07 to 0-05 and then Ath­league, Roscom­mon, by 3-05 to 0-01.

But things came un­stuck on Satur­day when ev­ery­thing that could go wrong did go wrong. The team lost out to even­tual All-Ire­land win­ners and host club An Ghaeltacht by 0-04 to 0-02, with the An Ghaeltacht goal sur­viv­ing at­tack af­ter at­tack as Luke’s searched for the win­ning score in the dy­ing min­utes. The bus got a flat tyre on tran­sit to the quar­ter fi­nal game against Rock­well Rovers, from Tip­per­ary, and the game had to be pushed back to 3pm, and when the bus couldn’t climb a steep hill, the omens cer­tainly weren’t good.

The team, how­ever, played out of their skins against Rock­well and lost out 1-04 to 0-3, hav­ing raced in to a three-point lead. The Rock­well goal came from a for­tu­itous side­line cut which cer­tainly brought Rock­well back in to the game.

Rock­well, like An Ghaeltacht, also pro­gressed to the fi­nal. The club would like to thank our hosts An Ghaeltacht for a fan­tas­tic week­end we would like to thank all the peo­ple who helped spon­sor our trip to the Féile, and most im­por­tantly all the 21 play­ers who played with heart and de­ter­mi­na­tion through­out the com­pe­ti­tion, they are a credit to the club an to their par­ents .

The club would like to con­grat­u­late our hosts An Ghaeltacht on their All-Ire­land suc­cess as well as Michael Dwyers (Di­vi­sion 5) and Carnew (Di­vi­sion 10) for win­ning their re­spec­tive All-Ire­land com­pe­ti­tions.

It is no mean feat for Wick­low clubs to come home with two cups for the sec­ond year in a row and maybe the County Board will start to re­alise that now is a good time to put more re­sources in to hurl­ing in the county, start­ing in the schools. On the do­mes­tic scene Luke O’ Toole’s Un­der-12 team were given a les­son in hurl­ing by Western Gaels last week­end, hope­fully they will learn from this game and come back stronger and bet­ter play­ers in the very near fu­ture.


The Un­der-8 and Un­der-10 hurl­ing teams played at the mon­ster blitz in Bal­li­nakill on Satur­day last and played some great hurl­ing to come away with some good vic­to­ries.

With some play­ers away at the Féile it was great to get a turn out, so well done to all for mak­ing the ef­fort.

The Kel­loggs Cúl Camps is fast ap­proach­ing , this is an ac­tion packed week of GAA ac­tiv­i­ties, run­ning from 10am to 2.30pm daily.

Well done to the Ju­nior hurlers who had an­other good victory last Wed­nes­day evening. They trav­elled to Grey­stones to play Eire Og and came away with a great win.

The lads hit the ground run­ning and built up a big half time lead of 3-6 to 0-4. They added an­other 2-5 in the sec­ond half to their op­po­nents 0-7 to run out win­ners, 5-11 to 0-11.

Full for­ward Dean Franey led the line well scor­ing 1-3, Ross O’Brien, Derek O’Neill, John O’Hal­lo­ran, and sub Colm Reynolds also raised green flags.

Aaron Meade scored four points, Ben O’Neill scored two with Ed­die Doyle and Theo Smith get­ting one each. The back line was rock solid with Ste­fan O’Brien, David Nolan and Tony Con­yard par­tic­u­larly prom­i­nent. Their next game is against league lead­ers St. Pat’s in the Park this Wed­nes­day evening (tonight).

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Cian Staunton, Matthew Traynor, Gary Hughes, Cal Con­nolly and Jonathan O’Neill who were on the Wick­low Un­der-17 hurl­ing team that beat West­meath in the fi­nal of the Celtic Chal­lenge Cup in Nowlan Park yes­ter­day, also not for­get­ting men­tor Sheila Driver who puts so much time into Wick­low hurl­ing. Well done one and all.

There was no win­ner of the jack­pot in last week’s club lotto. The num­bers drawn were 10, 11, 26, and 28. The jack­pot this week stands at €3,800, time to buy that ex­tra ticket.


Luke O’Tooles trav­elled to Water­ford last Fri­day morn­ing to take part in the 2016 Féile. The first match was in mod­eligo against Naomh Brid, Water­ford, at 4.45pm, which we won.

The sec­ond match was played in the same venue at 5.45pm against Ath­league/Tre­mane, from Roscom­mon, which we also won.

The last game in the group was played on Satur­day morn­ing in Ring at 10.30am against An Gaeltacht. The lads took on Rock­well/Roseg­reen in the quar­ter-fi­nal n Satur­day af­ter­noon but un­for­tu­nately lost by four points. Well done to each and every­one of them for do­ing their club and county proud.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Carnew Emmets and Michael Dy­w­ers on win­ning All-Ire­lands at the Féile.

Se­nior Foot­ball - Our Se­nior team were away on Sun­day morn­ing last in the league to Rath­new on a wet and wild morn­ing. Un­for­tu­nately the lads lost by four points. Train­ing is on Fri­day night at 8pm.

Also there is a new walk­ing group be­ing formed in the area. Any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing can meet on the Chapel Road in Greenan at 6.30pm on Wed­nes­day evenings.


AGB’s Un­der-14 girls got back to win­ning ways late last week away to Balt­in­glass, and fin­ished with a fi­nal score of AGB 7-07, Balt­in­glass 2-01.

The girls started anx­iously but within the first 10 min­utes they took the game in hand. Af­ter a few wides, the girls took their scores well and dom­i­nated the game, lead­ing at half-time. The sec­ond half saw a more con­fi­dent team take total con­trol of the game and saw some won­der­ful scores from dis­tance. There was a great all round dis­play by all the girls, and this will give the girls huge con­fi­dence go­ing into next week­end in the re­gional Féile in Kil­dare, where they will play against teams from Gal­way, Mayo and West­meath.

AGB’s Un­der-10 girls played Castle­town in a chal­lenge match dur­ing the week. The girls put in a tremen­dous ef­fort in their game and all were very happy with the out­come on the night.
