SHIL­LE­LAGH

To all the young peo­ple in the com­mu­nity and sor­round­ing ar­eas cur­rently sitting their Leav­ing and Ju­nior Cert ex­ams all the best from all con­nected with Shil­le­lagh G.A.A club

The com­bi­na­tion drawn in the club lotto draw on Mon­day, May 28, was 9, 10, 13, and 21.

The fol­low­ing matched three num­bers and shared €105. John O’Ke­effe c/o the Chair­man; Mick Whe­lan, Mill­bank, and Linda Quinn, Ti­na­hely. Keith Byrne won the pro­mot­ers prize, the next draw with the jack­pot at €2,700 was down for de­ci­sion on Mon­day last, June 11. The re­sults of which will be avail­able to in­ter­ested par­ties from Tues­day morn­ing in all lo­cal busi­ness out­lets, on the club Face­book page and in next week’s club notes. Your con­tin­ued sup­port is much ap­pre­ci­ated.

De­feat in a lo­cal derby at the best of times is not very palat­able, but de­feat was the lot of the Ju­nior A foot­ball team went they made the short com­mute to take on neigh­bours Cool­boy in Di­vi­sion 3 of the league on Tues­day, June 5.

A task that was al­ways go­ing to be dif­fi­cult be­came even more dif­fi­cult with the ridicu­lous send­ing off of the younger of the Cool­lat­tin Fo­ley boys, Daire, mid­way through the first half.

De­spite be­ing short staffed we were well in con­tention at the break but Cool­boy now with not one but two of our own brethren on their coach­ing staff were the dom­i­nant force and ran out de­serv­ing win­ners on a 2-14 to 2-4 score­line.

Good to see Cool­boy back and go­ing well af­ter a tricky lit­tle spell and maybe who knows maybe we’ll meet again some­time.

FOOT­NOTE: Most clubs will prob­a­bly ad­mit that an op­po­si­tion foot­ball will on the odd oc­ca­sion get lost or left be­hind, our as­tute/ ob­ser­vant Kit man John Cullen no­ticed that our ball bag was lighter than usual when de­part­ing Cool­boy. We were miss­ing one. En­ter Damien (Sammy) Ke­effe. Sammy made con­tact and the ball is on its way back to beau­ti­ful Shil­le­lagh. Well done, Sam.

A huge thanks to every­one who con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of our an­nual Golf Clas­sic on Sun­day, June 3.

18 teams par­tic­i­pated an in­crease on the pre­vi­ous year and that we were very pleased about.

To Coolat­tin G/C for the use of their fan­tas­tic course and premises, to the cater­ing staff, our very gen­er­ous spon­sors and to all who sourced and played on the 18 teams, well done to all con­cerned.

In prepa­ra­tion for the Wick­low Com­mu­nity Games fi­nals which takes place on the Fair­green on this Satur­day, June 16, (best of luck to our own and all athletes in­volved) our Chair­man Mark Dempsey has or­gan­ised a gen­eral clean up of the Fair­green area for this Wed­nes­day, June 13, start­ing at 7.30pm. Gloves, strim­mers, hedge cut­ters, rakes re­quired and most im­por­tant peo­ple to drive them. All help ap­pre­ci­ated. JU­VE­NILE NEWS

Plenty of ac­tiv­ity at ju­ve­nile level.
