The club would like to thank all our subscribers and promoters who helped to make this draw such a phenomenal success. The tickets were completely sold out within two weeks and the club regrets that many of our supporters were unable to purchase a ticket because demand far outstripped the supply. Thanks to Damien Mulcahy of Mulcahy’s Garage Ardcroney who supplied the car, Mary and Pat Lynch and the staff of the Western Pass for their hospitality on the night and to Garda Brendan Carey and Garda Stuart Beattie who drew the tickets and supervised the draw.
The senior hurlers play Mullinahone in MacDonagh Park on this Sunday at 12 noon in the second round of the county league. This is the first meeting between the clubs in any grade of hurling. The only previous encounter was in the county senior football championship in the early seventies when Kilruane MacDonaghs came out on top.
Congratulations to Dinny Cahill who coached Portumna to All-Ireland club final success in Croke Park. Dinny joins a select group, who have the distinction of winning a club medal and training a side to win the Tommy Moore Cup.
Philip Quinlan will be in charge of adult hurleys and Gilbert Williams will have the juvenile hurleys. All hurleys for repair should be given to Dinny Cahill.
Brian O Meara, Kevin Ryan and Niall O Meara were on the Borrisokane C.C. team, which defeated Athenry in the All-Ireland semi-final in Banagher. Eanna Hogan and Scott Hodgins were also on the panel. In the final they will play Johnstown.
The club would like to extend its sympathy to Declan Barrett on his recent bereavement
