The big Féile weekend is nearly upon us, and we looking forward to welcoming our new friends from Castlebar Mitchels in Mayo and Gaultier in Waterford on Friday afternoon.

The final Model County Draw takes place tonight (Tuesday). Hopefully we will have a number of winners of some of the big prizes. Once again, the club would like to thank all of those who supported the club for this draw.


The Junior hurlers continued their recent good run with a convincing 3-16 to 2-7 victory over Bannow-Ballymitty in the fifth round of the league played in Hollymount on Saturday. Four early points from Conor Hearne (two) and Darren Malone (two) gave the initiative to the home team, but Bannow fought back with a goal and two points to regain the upper hand.

However, the Shelmaliers scored two further points before Conor Byrne fired to the roof of the Bannow net in the 20th minute. With five points separating the sides at half-time (1-10 to 1-5), the Shelmaliers continued their dominance with three further points from Conor Byrne extending the lead before Jody Donohoe got his side's second goal in the tenth minute.

It was all Shelmalier play in the last quarter and they ran out easy winners on a scoreline of 3-16 to 2-7.

The Senior hurlers take on the Rapps (Enniscorthy) in Hollymount tonight (Tuesday) in the fifth round of the league starting at 8 p.m., and your support would be appreciated.

Shelmalier players Brian Malone, Eoghan Nolan and Simon Donohoe lined out with the Wexford Senior football team on Sunday week in Mullingar and great performances were given by all three players in the purple and gold jerseys. Simon and Brian defended very well in the half-back line while Eoghan was very dangerous in the forward line. Unfortunately, the final result didn't accurately reflect the pattern of the game.

There was great celebrating in Wexford Park on both Monday and Wednesday of last week when the camogie girls and hurling boys from our nationals schools completed the Rackard League double in victories over St. Martin's and Ferns respectively.

The outstanding girls were always in control and ran out easy winners, however, it wasn't as easy for the boys who put in an outstanding performance in the first-half and had to defend with great might to win by the narrowest of margins. It's a great achievement for all the pupils and teachers of our national schools and we offer them our congratulations on winning the hurling and camogie double.

After months of planning and preparation, Féile Peil finally starts on Friday afternoon when the Shelmaliers welcome a total of six other teams to Hollymout in both boys' and girls' football competitions. The action kicks off on Friday at 4 p.m. when the first round of matches take place and these matches will continue to roughly 6.30 p.m.

The action continues on Saturday between 11 a.m. and 12 noon with the next rounds taking place at other venues in the county. It's a great honour for the Shelmalier club and everybody in the parish that we are asked to host the first round of the Féile competition in Hollymount.

The Shelmalier G.A.A. club would like to invite you and your family members to visit us on both Friday and Saturday and witness the excitement of this national competition. The club would like to thank the many members, parents and supporters who have worked so hard over the last few months to prepare our club for this great occasion.

The Under-14 hurlers travelled to Offaly on Saturday to take part in the national Féile blitz and the boys had some great battles with both Tommy Larkins (Galway) and Round Towers (Dublin). An enjoyable day was had by the team and the many supporters who travelled with them to Offaly.


Last week's lotto numbers were 20, 21, 22 and 27. There was no winner and no match three. Lucky dips: Maggie Scallan and Joanne O'Leary. This week's jackpot is €10,000.

The All-Ireland Féile Peil takes place in Wexford, Wicklow and Carlow next weekend. Crossabeg-Ballymurn G.A.A. club will be hosting the Under-14 boys' team from Enniskillen Gaels in Co. Fermanagh, while the girls' club will host a team from Limerick.

The boys will play two matches in Carnew on Friday at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., and the girls will play in Blackwater that evening. On Saturday morning visiting teams play their host clubs, so we play Enniskilleen Gaels while the girls will play their Limerick visitors, with both games in Ballymurn pitch. There will be a parade of the four teams at 10 a.m. in the pitch, followed by the two games. Please come along and support all the boys and girls.

Thanks to those who helped in the pitch over the last few weeks painting etc., and also thanks to those homes who will host our visitors over the weekend. Best of luck to all the boys and girls, we hope you have a great weekend.


Both of our Under-12 camogie teams were in action last week. The blue team played Kilmore and the green team played Kilrush. Unfortunately, both teams lost, but there was a great effort from all with some fantastic individual performances!

Our Under-12 hurlers travelled to Dicksboro for a friendly game en route to the main affair - the Senior hurling semi-final v. Kilkenny in Nowlan Park. The bus was packed and the boys had a very enjoyable day.

Sunday was a proud day for Glynn N.S. students Tom Butler and Aoibhinn Ferriter who were chosen to represent Wexford as part of a primary schools selection versus Kilkenny in Nowlan Park which they did in style. Well done both of you!

Our Senior hurlers were defeated on Thursday in Killurin by the Shamrocks (4-6 to 1-12), but the Junior hurlers had more success on Friday versus Kilmore, finishing on a scoreline of 2-12 to 0-8.

Hard luck to Mark Fanning and his Wexford Senior hurling colleagues who were defeated by reigning All-Ireland champions Kilkenny on Sunday in Nowlan Park.

Our Under-10 girls' blue football team played St. Fintan's on Tuesday evening. They got off to a slow start and were 2-3 down after five minutes, but then they rallied and played really well to only lose by a goal in the end (3-4 to 2-4).

The Under-14 girls had a good win over a strong Bannow-Ballymitty side with a scoreline of 6-9 to 5-4.

The Under-18 ladies' footballers had a hard-fought win over St. Fintan's on Thursday by 4-6 to 2-9.

Our 'A' team played Ramsgrange and again this was a hard-fought game right to the final whistle, with the boys deservedly coming out on top with three points to spare.
