Swinford GAA Notes – 24th April 2015

You are welcome to share this on:

Minor League Division 2

The team got their season back on track with a good win against Ballyhaunis on Wednesday 15th April with a score of 3-13 to 0-5. It was followed up by a fine win at home to Mayo Gaels 4-15 to 1-6 on Friday 17th April.

Next up for the Minor Team is an away trip to our neighbours Kiltimagh tonight (Friday 24th April) at 6:45pm. All support is welcome.

Senior League Division 1C

A very impressive win away to Ballintubber by 1-5 to 3-11 has given the team a 100% start to the season. The team never went behind in the game and led from 10 minutes in to the end of the game.

Swinford scorers: Jack McDonnell 1-8, Michael Walsh 2-0, Stephen Henry, Liam Moran and Barry Brennan 0-1 each.

Senior League Division 1E

A late flurry of goals and a sending off cost Swinford the game against Aghamore. 3-6 to 1-6 was the final score. The teams were level at half time and with 5 minutes to go before 3 goals for Aghamore and a consolation goal for Swinford with the last kick of the game brought matters to an end.

Swinford scorers: Jason McLoughlin 1-0, Kevin McDonagh & James Lavin 0-2 each, Gerard Callaghan & Mark McNicholas 0-1 each.

Under 16 League

The team have got off to a great start in the league, winning three games from three. Last Tuesday night they had a very good win at home to Tourmakeady on a score line of 6-14 to 1-5.

Well done to John Dunne and all his team of players and selectors.

Club Development Draw 2015

– Last Chance To Enter –

Swinford GAA Club has launched their club draw for 2015. The annual subscription remains at €150. The club draw is again structured this year to ensure each subscriber is getting value for their money and you will be entitled to the following for your €150 investment in the club;

1.  Club Membership – €20

2.  Entry to Swinford GAA Home League games

3.  County Board ticket – €100, which has a prize fund of €90,000 and

4.  An entitlement to purchase an All-Ireland Senior Football Final ticket should Mayo reach the final in 2015.

The officers of the club have decided to restrict the numbers in the draw this year to 130 people in order to limit the ticket demands placed on it should Mayo reach the All Ireland Final in 2015.

Please contact any club officer as soon as possible if you are interested in purchasing a ticket as we expect to sell the allocation within a couple of weeks.
