Aghada GAA Notes

23 May, 2011

Last Monday 24th May Christy Cooney the Uachtarán Cumann Luth Chleas Gael visited Aghada N. S. in connection with the upcoming Feile Péil. He was greeted by headmaster Laurence Collins as well as Robin Triggs Chairman of the Aghada club. The Uachtarán engaged with the pupils as was put through his paces in a question and answer session. The Uachtarán was accompanied by Joe Fitzgerald of Bus Éireann who are the main sponsors of Feile Péil. Also in the party was Cork footballer Fiachra Lynch who brought along the national league cup.

Aghada boys host Sarsfields of Kildare while the Ladies host Ennis of Clare. More about this as the time draws nearer.

Friday Night 27th May is D Day for our hurlers as we take on Ballygarvan at Páirc Uí Rinn please note change of time from 7-30 to 8-00 as we are now the second part of a double header. A lot of work have gone on in a short space of time, lets hope this enough to see us into the forth round. While we lost to Newcestown last Thurs night we showed up well only losing out late in the game. Aghada started well and done most of the scoring in the opening half but were unable to keep up the momentum as the Newcestown boys came back to win by the narrowest of margins. Final score Aghada 1-11 Newcestown 2-9
