50/50 Draw

This weeks draw was held in Bolands and Maria Groarke of Derryronane won €793.
Envelopes are available in most business premises and online through www.swinfordgaa.ie where tickets can be purchased in bundles of 10/25/52 weeks. Next draw is in Julians Bar on the 4th October. Draw envelopes are available at 3 for €5.

The winner of the All Ireland Final Ticket was Sarah Lavin of Railway Terrace, Swinford.

All Ireland Replay Tickets

The club received an allocation of tickets on Sunday night from the county board, unfortunately demand is running at twice the amount of tickets. We are hoping that we will get a second allocation on Thursday. Recipients of tickets will be contacted with details of where to collect their ticket.

I’m afraid it will not be possible to give out multiple tickets. As with the drawn match the majority of tickets are either Hill16 or Nally terrace.

The club did not take up any juvenile tickets as the offer was only ten tickets and would have been at the expense of adult tickets.

Minor B Championship:

Swinford Parke KC Minor team defeated Bonniconlon in terrible conditions on Friday evening in Bekan by 2-5 to 0-2 to qualify for the county semi final. 36 hours later they had to go out and play Belmullet at their home and this was too much and they were beaten 2-18 to 0-2. There is no doubt the fixture list and player wellfare has to be looked at for the coming year. Well done to all the lads from both clubs and to the management.

Senior League Division 1C

In wet and windy conditions on Saturday evening Ballyhaunis came to Robert McCallion Memorial Park and left with the two points by defeating Swinford 0-15 to 1-9.
