A Chara,

A few short notes this week from Costa Del Saleen with upcoming fixtures mainly on the agenda. After a disappointing result in Cobh last Sunday for our intermediate hurlers, our premier intermediate footballers are back in action at 4pm today (Sunday) in Carrigtwohill where they face Na Piarsaigh. This is a vital game for Aghada after falling to a narrow loss to Bantry Blues last time out. With weather conditions likely to be extremely warm, every bit of support would be appreciated to help shout our lads on so please make every effort to get to Carrigtwohill. Remember to leave a few minutes earlier than normal with a few diversions in place due to the Ironman race and associated road closures. A reminder tickets are only available ONLINE for this game at the below link: https://www.universe.com/events/aghada-v-na-piarsaigh-bons-secours-pi-football-championship-tickets-1G0KBD

(Juveniles/U16s do not need a ticket) 

Also, just a quick note that Carrigtwohill GAA pitch is closed to spectator traffic today. See the attached link for more information: https://tinyurl.com/4xe2jads

On Monday evening, our Junior C footballers are out in championship action for the first time this year. They face Carraig na bhFear at 7:30pm in Carraig na bhFear. This team reached the East cork Final last year so hopefully they can get off to a good start on Monday evening. Best of luck lads. 

After a brilliant win against Carbery Rangers a couple of weeks ago in the county quarter final, our U19 footballers face Eire Og at 7:45pm in Ballygarvan. Hopefully we will have a county final to look forward to after the game. County semi-finals don’t come around too often lads so enjoy the occasion and give it everything! These lads deserve a big support on Wednesday so please make every effort to attend.  

You’d be forgiven for thinking that would be the end of the championship action for the week but on Saturday evening at 5:30pm our Junior B Hurlers play Youghal in their second round championship game after a fine win against Lisgoold last time out. Venue is yet to be confirmed but once it is, it will be posted on social media so keep an eye out and get out to support the team if you can. Tickets for this one are only available at the gate. 

Club Clean Up Day: (THIS SATURDAY)

On Saturday the 20th of August (This Saturday), the club is having a clean-up day from 8AM to 2PM. Jobs will include painting, a bit of weeding, cleaning and more! It would be great to get as many volunteers as possible down to the clubhouse on Saturday to help with these jobs. As the saying goes EVERY LITTLE HELPS!

Fair play to Ger O’Keeffe who got a head start in this week by painting the entrance to the pitch in the club colours. See the attached photo below. 

Lotto: 

Last week’s lotto draw took place in The Sideline Café on Thursday evening to mark the jackpot reaching a cool €12,000. John Murphy gave a tour of the Café on the live video stream which was followed by the customary song and a tune by club president John Motherway. Next week’s jackpot rises to €12,250 and tickets are available online at the following link: https://bit.ly/3bWAiqD

Best of luck: 

Good luck to the Aghada Ladies Junior Football team who play Castlehaven on Monday evening in Cloughduv in the junior county final. Bring a county back to Rostellan ladies.  

Best wishes to former Aghada Ladies star Joyce Roberts who participates in the Ironman event in Youghal this weekend.  

Commiserations to the three Aghada girls involved in the Camogie All Ireland Final last weekend. It wasn’t to be on the day but no doubt ye’ll go one better next year. 

Congratulations to Rachel Leahy, Aoife Healy, Abigail Ring (Player of the Match) and Kaitlin Smith who were part of the Cork minor ladies football team that were crowned All Ireland champions last week. A fantastic achievement girls. Well done. 

Condolences: 

Last week the country was shocked to hear of the sad passing of Clonoulty-Rossmore and Tipperary star hurler, Dillon Quirke. Aghada GAA would like to express its sympathies to the Quirke family and all connected with Clonoulty-Rossmore GAA Club on the untimely passing of Dillon. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam. 

The club would also like to send its condolences to the Cronin family on the sad passing of John Cronin (Churchtown South) during the week.  


That’s it for today. Best of luck to our 4 adult teams in action over the next six days. Get out to show your support if you can. Enjoy the good weather while it's here. This might be our lot until next year!  

Slán,
