Craobh Rua Hurling Club

 

Successful Underage Hurling Presentation Night

The Craobh Rua Camlocha Hurling Club hosted their annual Underage Presentation Celebration Night on Friday [1]. Guest of honour was Ryan Cinnamond who delivered an inspirational speech to the large attendance which included young hurlers, their parents and families, Team Mentors, Senior Hurlers, Club Officers and mentors.

Ryan likened the work and training that he is doing with his new legs, to that of a young boy or girl learning the new skills needed for hurling. Craobh Rua Hurling Club would like to thank Ryan not only for his attendance at our special night but for his great example to others and we wish him well in all his endeavours.

The Richard Hughes Memorial Award which incidentally is the only juvenile award we have in our Club was presented by Kevin Hughes and Ryan Cinnamond to Kevin Doyle with Teresa and DJ his proud parents present as was St Joseph’s Primary School represented by Finnoula Bradley.

St. Patrick’s GFC Cullyhanna

Michael McCreesh RIP

The sad death of our Club Vice-President Michael McCreesh, Dundalk Road sees the passing of one of those stalwart committee men who contributed so much to the development of the infrastructure of the Cullyhanna G.A.A. club and helped in no small way to leave it in the excellent and modern state that it finds itself today. Very much believing in the ideal that it was the duty of members of the community to offer their help to any local parish enterprise Michael became involved with the committee in the early 1980s at the time when planning was beginning for the purchase and development of the present field. He soon got involved in the financial structures of the club, not a job for the faint hearted as money was more than scarce and the development of new grounds was a very costly business. Using his shrewd financial acumen and unrivalled contacts in the business world Michael was a great help in keeping the club solvent and also making sure that any work that was carried out was done to the best advantage of the club.

Down the years it had been the fervent dream of club members to own its own playing field and it was the dedication and commitment of men like Michael that this dream was realised and no man in Ireland was prouder on that summer day in 1988 when the dream was realised and the new field was officially opened. Of course having the field was only the beginning of the modern development and following on many great things were achieved in developing clubrooms and other much needed facilities. In all these important improvements Michael and his family were intimately involved and always ready to offer advice and help on any occasion it was sought. Although in poor health in recent times Michael kept a lively interest in the progress of the club and was delighted to see the advances of the club both on and off the field.

To his wife Mary, sons John and Liam, daughters Mary and Breda, grandchildren, brothers, sisters and the large McCreesh family circle the club offers its deepest sympathy on their sad and irreplaceable loss.

Scór Na nÓg

Another fantastic night for Scór na nÓg in our club was enjoyed in Whitecross last Friday night. Our talented performers in the quiz, recitation, ballad group and novelty act sections all qualified for the county final on what was a wonderful evening of success for Scór in Cullyhanna. We wish them all the very best in the county final in Killeavy at 5pm on Saturday 29th November. Hopefully there will be a good crowd from Cullyhanna in attendance to give them the support they deserve.

This was of course was Cullyhanna’s first ever adult championship and we look forward with pride to hosting those who were involved. A complimentary Buffet supper will be served.

Minor Girls

Our minor girls were in action in the Ulster championship on Sunday afternoon against Tyrone side St Macartans in Augher and they put in a great display to claim the win by twenty-three points, 6 – 18 to 1- 10. The Shanes made a blistering start and had a total of 2 – 5 on the board before St Macartans registered their first point and midway through the first-half the Shanes led by eight points, 3 – 6 to 1 – 4. The Camlough side scored a further four points to take a healthy twelve point advantage into the half-time interval. Early scores in opening minutes of the second period saw the Shanes increase their lead to seventeen points but to their credit the St Macartans girls kept plugging away and fired over two quick fire points but the Shanes cancelled these out with a further goal and a point. The Tyrone side then notched up four points in a row but they were no match for the Shanes who finished the match in great fashion, scoring another 1 – 5 without reply to claim victory on a score-line of 6 – 18 to 1 – 10. The girls return to action on Sunday 7th December at 2.00pm with a home game in the semi-final of the Ulster championship against Monaghan champions Donaghmoyne. Training continues as normal this week.
