SARSFIELDS We still await a date for the Under-21 football county semi-final against the New Ross District winners.

However, the earliest it can take place is the first weekend in December as the second semi-final in Ross between Taghmon-Camross and Gusserane won’t take place until November 19, because some of the Gusserane players are involved in next Saturday’s replayed Minor final.

Rathgarogue-Cushinstown are waiting for the victors in the District final which will go ahead on the last weekend of this month.

We are now in the process of filling selector and manager positions for all teams for the 2017 season. If you are interested in helping out in any way with a team next year, please contact Philly Cullen on 087-6707220.

The winning lotto numbers on November 7 were 10, 19, 23 and 29. There was no jackpot winner, and next week’s jackpot is €3,800.

Our annual club Mass for deceased members will be held in the Gaelscoil this Friday, November 11, at 7.30 p.m.

Phase two of the training pitch upgrade was completed last week, with the compost laid. It’s great to see things starting to take shape, and it will be guaranteed plenty of use in 2017.


The food is ordered, the chefs are planning, the waiters are trained and the cooking equipment is in readiness for what is promised to be one of the great events in the ‘Rose of Shelmalier’ contest 2016.

Of course, what we are referring to is the special ‘Big Breakfast Morning’ which takes place in Hollymount on Sunday, November 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The club has sent out an open invitation to every family, member and supporter to come along on Sunday to enjoy the great atmosphere, fun and craic at this unique event. To enjoy the great food on offer you can come along at any time between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. where you will be served a hearty breakfast at very reasonable rates in the special dining room set up for the day.

So if it’s a good breakfast you and your family are looking for, Hollymount is the place to be on Sunday morning next from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Shelmalier G.A.A. club and everybody in the parish would like to congratulate and recognise the unique achievement of Kate Kelly in being awarded her ninth camogie All Star at the national awards held in Dublin on Saturday.

This is a milestone never achieved before by any camogie player in Wexford and is in recognition of the outstanding sportsperson that Kate is on both the local and national stage. She is a great inspiration to all the girls and boys in the parish and demonstrates to them what they can achieve with the same skill, commitment and dedication. Once again congratulations Kate on an outstanding achievement.

After months of preparation the lights are finally shining in Hollymount with the big switch-on taking place during the week. There has been a very positive initial reaction from those who have seen them lighting and they should be a great additional facility to the club as a whole.

The Shelmalier club would like to thank the many people in the parish and beyond who both assisted and supported the fundraising events associated with the development of the lights in Hollymount.

The Shelmalier G.A.A. club would like to inform you that the annual 1910 Mass for the deceased members and supporters of the club will take place on Sunday, November 20, in Castlebridge at 10.30 a.m.

The club would like to extend an invitation to everybody associated with the club either at present or in the past to come along on Sunday week for this annual event.


Our lotto jackpot wasn’t won last week. The winning numbers were 9, 11, 29 and 31, and there were four match 3 winners: Jim Morrissey, Slevoy; Joe Devlin, Vernegly; Maura Kennedy, Sheilbaggan, and Vanessa Hornick, c/o Angela Bunting.

The next jackpot will be €6,200 on November 15 in the Centre.

We are still waiting on a date for Under-21 football versus Gusserane. It could be on next Sunday, so we will put it on our Facebook page when the fixture is confirmed.


Indoor training continues every Friday in the St. Peter's College complex, Belvedere Road. Training times are: Under-6, 6 to 7 p.m.; Under-10, 6.30 to 7.30 p.m.; Under-12, 7 to 8 p.m.

Congratulations to Michelle Tompkins who won €238 in last week's Split the Pot. The seller was Shirley Nolan.

A big thank you to all who supported us, and thank you to all our sellers. Next week’s envelopes are on sale now, and your continued support would be greatly appreciated.

The club would like to send a vote sympathy to Eleanor Browne and the Browne family on the passing of her aunt, Eileen Lawlor (nee Crowley). May she rest in peace.


Pool for turkeys continues this Sunday from 6 p.m. in the Complex. All are welcome, so spread the word!
