Castlemartyr GAA Notes

18 April, 2010


It’s that time of year again, when the members of Castlemartyr GAA club swop their hurley sticks for their golf clubs and try to hack around East Cork Golf Club in Midleton for the Annual Bord Gais Castlemartyr GAA Golf Classic. Of course the event is not confined just to Castlemartyr GAA members but is thrown open to anyone who wants to join them and support them on the day.

This year the event will be held on Thursday the 27th of May and will again be a 3 team event. There will be prizes for GUI and non GUI teams and also for longest drive and nearest the pin competitions. If you are interested in competing, please contact Mick Carroll on 021 4667516 or 0862577214.

Due to the present economic climate the entry fee has been reduced to a very attractive 150 euro per team (50 euro per head) and bear in mind this also includes a hot meal afterwards. We would also be keen to hear from people or businesses interested in sponsoring Tee Boxes which are available for 50 euro. Contact Mick for these also.


All roads lead to the local GAA pitch in Castlemartyr on Sunday May the 9th for a day of celebration and fun. Everyone is welcome from tiny tots to OAP’s and there will be something for everyone to enjoy. A bouncy castle will be laid on to wear out the small ones as well as numerous activities for all the family to enjoy.

Admission will be free and the main event this year is a Castlemartyr v Mogeely football match, which promises to be ultra competitive, judging by all the trash talk currently being spoken. A minimum of 5 retired former stars must also be on the field for each team at any one time, which should add to the fun. A day not to be missed.
