Weekly GAA club notes
SARSFIELDS Hard luck to Dylan Furlong and new arrival to the club David Gouldson who gave their all for St. Peter's in Saturday's All-Ireland Schools Senior football 'A' final loss to St. Brendan's in Croke Park.
It meant a great deal to see the club's name listed on the match programme and called out over the P.A. on such an auspicious occasion. Well done also to Jake Clancy, Seán Banville, Fiach O Crualaoich and Conor Hillis who were all part of the panel.
Well done to the Under-14 girls who beat Clonard/Volunteers 'B' in the first round of the league in Páirc Charman on Saturday, and hard luck to the Juvenile girls who were beaten by Ballyhogue in Bree on Tuesday.

This year we have entered three age groups: Under-8s, Under-10s and Under-12s. Please call Mary on 087-9967925 if you require any more information.
We are calling on all past camogie players to come back and give an hour or two of your time to show these girls the skills.
Well done to our Under-9s who played two super hurling matches on Saturday in the Under-9 shed blitz out in the Shelmaliers indoor arena. They won both their matches against Crossabeg and the Faythe Harriers. Great work boys and a great team effort.

Another fantastic performance from Mark Fanning and the Senior hurling team served to knock out hot favourites Kilkenny in the Allianz League quarter-final in a superb display of determination and scoring. Mark must be particularly acknowledged for his contribution on a day tinged with great sadness following the passing of his grandfather on Friday.
Glynn-Barntown G.A.A., camogie and ladies' football clubs extend their deepest condolences to the Fanning family on the sad occasion of the passing of Francis Fanning, Colestown, Barntown. Francis is mourned by his loving family, many of whom have played various roles in our clubs. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
A huge well done to our Under-14 lady footballers who won their opening match of the season (Division 1) after a hard-fought battle on Thursday against the Shelmaliers. Two excellent teams gave us an exciting evening of football with both sides throwing everything into the game right to the end. We were so proud of every one of our girls! The final score was 3-7 to 3-1.
The same girls were fantastic on Sunday morning, winning four out of four matches in the Féile first round blitz in Piercestown, beating St. Martin's, Ballyhogue, Taghmon and Adamstown. Well done everyone, you were all amazing. We will meet Crossabeg-Ballymurn in the Féile semi-final on April 10.
