This is an important occasion for all in Hollymount as it's the one time in the year that we pay our respects to all the deceased women and men who served the club in a variety of ways in the past. The Shelmalier G.A.A. club would like to invite all club members and supporters to join with them on Sunday.

There was no winner of the Shelmalier Development Lotto on November 9 when the numbers drawn were 9, 22, 23 and 24. There was one lucky winner of match three and that was Miriam Carley who won €200.

All in Hollymount would like to thank the people of the parish who continue to support the Shelmalier Development Lotto on a weekly basis and thereby help support the continued development of Hollymount.

Hard luck to our Under-21 hurlers who were beaten in their long-awaited Co. final by a strong Crossabeg-Ballymurn outfit last Sunday week. Our boys went in at the break trailing by 1-8 to 0-2, and though they scored 2-4 to Crossabeg-Ballymurn's second half offering of 0-7, the gap was just too wide. With the vast majority of the team still eligible again next year, we're sure they will progress and learn from the experience.

The first round of the Under-21 football championship begins next Saturday versus Shelmaliers in Hollymount.

Our Intermediate footballers bowed out of the Leinster Club championship just short of a final appearance at the hands of Athlone by 1-6 to 0-6 on Sunday afternoon in Killurin. Glynn-Barntown went into the interval one point ahead (0-5 to 1-1) having played the better football of the two teams in a strong, swirling wind that made anything other than carrying the ball very difficult.

First-half points came from Ríoghan Crosbie, Michael O'Regan (two frees), Craig Doyle and Seán Carmody. In the second-half, despite the boys' hard work ethic, their only score came in the form of a handpassed point from Seán Carmody.

The sides were neck and neck until the final five minutes of the game when Athlone pulled away to finish three points clear. It has been a tremendous journey for this panel, their management and the club as a whole to present themselves so well on the provincial stage, and we are all extremely proud of their achievements.

Our Under-9-11 ladies' football O'Brien's Londis winter league finished up earlier this month with all four teams - Wexford Ladies, Lilywhites, Pink Panthers and Glynn-Barntown Ladies - playing fast, competitive and fun football.

Thank you all for making this an enjoyable league - sadly our season is over. Until next season.....keep playing!

The Junior league Co. final due to be played Friday was called off. Watch the club Facebook page for details of the re-fixed game.

The ladies' football end-of-year party will take place next Sunday, November 22, at the clubhouse where we will have food, treats and a fun table quiz at 7 p.m. We hope to see all members there.

The new club lotto was launched last week in the clubhouse and both club and lotto committees were delighted with the response and would like to thank all who have supported this fundraiser. We need everyone's help to reach the target hoped for.

Tickets are still available but with the first draw taking place this Wednesday, November 18, in Declan's you'll have to be quick!

Remember if you're not in, you can't win! - contact John on 087-2807679 for information or visit the club website:

The club would like to extend its congratulations to Glynn N.S. boys' football team which captured its first-ever Rackard League football title in St. Patrick's Park recently with a fantastic win over St. Senan's, Enniscorthy.

Guided by dedicated mentors Mr. Crean and Mr. Lynch, the boys treated the spectators to a superb display of fast, clever football to finish comfortably on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-3.
