Well done to the Intermediate girls this morning in the league game v Drumclff Rosses Point with a score line of 5/11 to 3/11 . There were super scores from the forwards  in first half and held the opposition off in the second half with great defensive work from the backs ! Speedy recovery to Aisling Egan who picked up an injury . It's encouraging to welcome the returning ladies to the squad !! Excited to have the crew back together .Our senior hurlers played Western Gaels in Enniscrone this morning but lost out by 3 points. 
Well done to Lauren Normanly who played for Sligo in the half way game in McHale Park today and scored a goal and 3 points . Lauren was wearing  the no 7 jersey as was Senior Sligo Tourlestrane man John Kelly. Comiserations to the Sligo team who were unlucky against Mayo . 
Our u14 boys played Eastern Harps friday night, away in cold and wet conditions. Tourlestrane were looking to keep their place as top of the group, Harps went into the game in second place, with a chance to topple the league leaders. 
Harps started the game well, taking a one point lead. Four unanswered tourlestrane points soon followed. Four goals were equally shared before half time, ours coming from Jack Lundy and Darren Gallagher. As the rain died off, the teams went into the second half with five points between them, 2-6 to 2-1 in favour of the green and gold.
The second half saw a total of 9 goals, 7 of which scored by tourlestrane. Points from Kevin Brennan and Aidan marren also added to the tally. The backs worked extremely hard to hold off the Harps attack, Raymond Clarke, Diarmuid Monaghan and Conor Surlis supplied ball to the half forward line of Jessie Surlis, Danny Cawley and Ethan Kennedy all game, as the full back line of Tom Bailey, Adrian Walsh and Robbie Ohara kept the pressure off Zack Nealon's goal. 
The game finished 9-10 to 4-3. 
The next outing for the u14s comes this Monday night, at home to Shamrock Gaels. 
Tourlestrane; Zack Nealon; Tom Bailey, Adrian Walsh, Robbie Ohara; Conor Surlis, Diarmuid Monaghan(1-0), Raymond Clarke; Jack Lundy(3-1), Kevin Brennan(0-2);Jessie Surlis, Danny Cawley, Ethan Kennedy(1-1); Cormac Dolan(1-0), Aidan Marren(1-5), Darren Gallagher(2-1); Evan Brennan, Darragh Connolly, Michael McIntyre, Ollie Allyward.

This week saw our teams on a winning streak with a few exciting close encounters with huge differences in the weather from the start of the week in the blazing sunshine to torrential downpours of Bunninadden this morning !!. Monday kicked off the week with the u16 boys playing St Mary’s at home and made a triumphant comeback in the last quarter of the game to overcome a strong opposition. Tuesday  evening at the pitch saw our u12 boys beat St Michaels but the u16 girls team were unlucky to be beaten by 3 points.

Friday our u14 hurlers travelled to Castleconnor and came home victorious! On Saturday evening Curry were the hosts for a Kiernan cup game v our Senior team and we came out on top with a comfortable win. Sunday morning the Intermediate ladies under the guidance of David Bailey, Enda Kelly, Austin Walsh and Jenny Lundy headed out as the Heavens opened to face CT Gaels in the final of the ACL league. As both teams battled it out in the first half to gain scores there was just 2 points in it at half time. The second half showed both teams take the lead at different stages it looked like CT Gaels who had gained a lead that we couldn’t come back from the girls dug deep and with some excellent fielding and a huge team effort the final whistle blew with the teams at CT Gaels 3/8 Tourlestrane 2/11, with extra time the only option to claim the trophy. This was when the team fully kicked into action and showed they wanted this win and with some mighty scores taken when opportunity arose we snatched the win from CT Gaels grasp and finished 4/16 to 3/10. The chase was on then to make it across the parishes to see our Junior Men face Cloonacool away. The lads were brushed with the girls luck of the morning and the final result was Tourlestrane 18 points to Cloonacools 1/6.

Congratulations to Clubman Adrian McIntyre who won man of the match in New York in the Sligo v New York game in New York last Sunday.

Pride of the Parish this week goes to Pat Carty on receiving another Wheelchair Hurling All Star playing with Connacht. Congratulations Pat , you are an inspiration to all club players. Well done to our Senior Men who beat Curry at the pitch on Friday night last and to our Junior men who clocked up a comprehensive win away to Shamrock Gaels this morning.  It was winning times for our u16 girls Tuesday night against Shamrock Gaels as it was for our minor lads against St Farnans on a scoreline that didn’t do justice to St Farnans team and some lovely football was played.

Monday night our u12 boys headed out on a Baltic night to Geevagh and although the panel of 17 mighty lads never gave up they lost out to the home team. Wednesday evening  our u8s and u10s played host at the pitch to Eastern Harps teams. The future looks bright for both parishes and it was so encouraging to see such a great bunch of children for the two clubs strongly supported by a marvellous band of parents siblings grandparents aunties uncles and cousins watch the games.

The u12 girls were beaten Friday night by a stronger CT Gaels team.

Yesterday's Charity Memorial Game at the pitch was a huge success and we have received massive positive response to the event . A big thank you to everyone who turned out to the pitch .. to the 90+players both young and 'mature', to the referrees who are forgiven for their cards !!! To our supporters who kindly gave donations .. to the commentators the camera men and women, to the sponsors of the food and the trusty catering staff and to the senior team lads who organised the day for us all with a special shout out which must be given to Brian Kennedy who had the idea and made it happen . Congratulations to the Gold team who won by a mere 2 point margin !! The green team may take you the next time prepared !!! A mention also must be given to Roseanne Timlin and Ciara Flynn who organised the packed house in Flynn's last night for the Rock Night. Well done to all
The details of the monies raised yesterday are as follows
Charity Game = €2884.64Rock Night = €1367.64  Grand Total = €4252.28
Which shows what a great pride we have in our club and parish for the Mighty Green and Gold of Tourlestrane Gaa. We know our past heroes were smiling down on us watching and enjoying the games too . Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anamnacha
