Busy Hurling Week-End


Castlelyons 1-21  Ballyduff 2-10


Castlelyons Intermediate hurling team took on Ballyduff in a challenge
match on Fri evening last in Ballyduff. On a lovely fine evening pitch
and weather conditions were excellent for hurling.Ballyduff started
strongly and had the first score in the first minute of play.They
extended their lead to 2 points before Castlelyons got their opening
score  a point from R.Fenton.Castlelyons dominated the scoring in the
next 20 mins and put together some fine passages of play and got some
great scores.Castlelyons went in at half time leading by 3 points on a
score of 0-11 to 1-05.The second half continued on much the same as
the first with Castlelyons back lines playing very well and setting up
some great scoring chances for the forwards. This game was played at a
great pace and even though a lot of subs were introduced it did not
upset the flow of the team and they ran out winners on a score line of
1-21 to 2-10. In all this was a good exercise ahead of the 4th round
of the championship which is due to be played on the August bank
holiday weekend with the draw being made on this Tuesday night.

Costs are an ongoing problem in the running and upkeep of any club,
and the more successful it is and the more teams it fields, the more
expensive it is to run.Castlelyons GAA in an effort to cover its
everyday expenses are organizing a fundraising draw to be held over
two weekends in September. A launch night will be held on Sat 20th
July with tickets available from any club member and select outlets in
the area. Please support this fundraiser and help Castlelyons GAA club
who do so much good for all the youth of the parish.



Membership for 2013 is now overdue and needs to be paid immediately.
Subs can be paid to Con Lawlor (treasurer) Donal O'Leary ,Denis Fenton
or any officer of the club.
