Glin GAA Medal Presentation Night
On July 18th, Glin GAA will be holding a Celebration night in Killarney for the victorious County Junior team of 2014. There will be a meal first followed by the medals presentation afterwards. All players and supporters are welcome to attend and if you wish to join us on the night, please contact Paddy Fitzgerald.
The 5th annual Glin Knights Charity Cycle in association with the Nano Nagle School and Glin GAA will be taking place on August 15th this year. We will have two routes again in 2015.
The 70 k route is as follows: starting in Glin, Tarbert, Moyvane, Knockanure, Athea, Ardagh, Shanagolden, Foynes, Loughill and finishing in Glin.
The 120 k cycle route is as follows: starting in Glin, Tarbert, Moyvane, Knockanure, Athea, Abbeyfeale, Killaughteen, Old Mill, Ardagh, Rathkeale, Askeaton, Foynes, Loughill and finishing in Glin.
It caters for every category of cyclists. Water stops will be provided for in Athea and Foynes while a food stop will be provided for in Ardagh. The route is a challenging one with some tough hills but some beautiful scenery coming along the Shannon and when you’re finished, you’ll know you’ve been on a good spin for a great cause. Registration will take place in Barrett’s Bar from 8.30am on the day, with the cycle beginning at 10.00am.
Sponsorship cards are available from any member of Glin GAA and local businesses. Immediately after the cycle there will be food in Barrett’s Bar and music and craic until the small hours in O’Shaughnessy Bar later on that evening. All your support will be greatly appreciated.
Commiserations to the Limerick Senior Footballers, who were knocked out of the All Ireland Championship by Tyrone in Omagh last weekend. The lads gave it their all, but in the end the strength and experience of the Red Hand men came to the fore. Well done to our own Kevin Moore who scored a point when he came on in the second half.
Our intermediate team had 2 matches in recent weeks, beating Claughaun by 8-12 to 0-9 and drawing with Mungret 2-8 to 1-11 in Division 3 of the County League.
JBFC- Glin vs St. Kieran’s is due to be played this weekend. Time and date to be confirmed
