Weekly PRO Notes

posted 16 Oct 2011, 16:00 by Tourlestrane GAA PRO

Well done to our Senior Footballers who put in a brilliant team performance in Carrick on Shannon on Sunday last to defeat the Leitrim Champions Glencar Manorhamilton. We came from 6 points down after the concession of an early goal to go in level at half time, after playing into a stiff breeze, following a great Gary Gaughan goal. We came out with all guns blazing in the second half and a feature of the game was that all our half backs scored with the three Dunne Brothers all getting on the score-sheet, creating a record in itself. While finishing out 1-15 to 2-07 winners we still will need to improve if we are to defeat St Bridget's of Roscommon, one of the best teams of the AIB Club scene for the last number of years, in the Connacht Semi Final on Sunday the 6th of November in Sligo. More details to follow on the website Thanks again to all our loyal supporters who made the trip to Carrick to cheer the lads on.

We now have Tourlestrane Car Stickers available from club Treasurer David McVeigh and also by contacting the club by email or on our Facebook page.

Our minor hurlers were unable to complete the double at the weekend when we came up against a very strong Coolera team despite scoring a creditable 2-7.

Our U20 footballers also suffered defeat last week when we came out second best to Castleconnor. They are due to travel to Oxfield on Saturday next at 4.30 to play Drumcliffe.
