CLUB NOTES W/E SEP 1ST

CAMOGIE
U12 camogie Team “Goliath” played away to Bunclody on Sunday morning in their second last game of the season. In what turned out to be a very competitive game, Bunclody scored a last minute goal to secure the win. This is the first match this season in which team Goliath have been defeated-an impressive record. The last match is against Kilrush, a win here will mean qualification for the County Finals.
Hard luck to our Junior camogie team beaten by Rapparees in Bellefield on Thursday evening.
Hard luck to our own Emma Dempsey and the Wexford u16 camogie team who unfortunately lost out in the All Ireland final on Sunday to Galway. The teams were level at half time but the opposition pulled away in the second half to win on a scoreline of 2-16 to 2-5. Reaching an All Ireland final is an incredible achievement for these very hardworking girls and we’re very proud of them all.

20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
A fantastic day of camogie was enjoyed by all last Saturday as our camogie club celebrated its 20th anniversary with the Leinster inflatable pitch providing the venue for a mini blitz for u6-u12s, obstacle courses, coffee morning, cake sale, ice cream stand while tbe evening entertainment kicked off with a Junior/Senior mini league all leading up to a night of music and memories in the clubhouse bar. A presentation was made to Mary Roche to thank herself and Declan (The Sycamore House) for their 20 years of sponsorship and support.
As part of our 20 year anniversary celebrations the camogie club held two competitions:-The winner of our colouring competition was Sophie Sinnott (u8) and the winner of our design-a-crest competition was Cara Kelly (u12). Both girls received vouchers for the club gear shop as their prizes.

LADIES FOOTBALL
Unfortunately Glynn/Barntown lost out to a very strong Mogue/O’Rahillys team in the County U16 Division 2 ladies football semi final in Gusserane,
on a score line of 5-3 to 2-3 on Thursday evening.
They conceded two early goals in the first half and were chasing the game from there on.
The opposition set up with a sweeper which proved difficult to break down.
In the second half the girls fought back bravely but it was not to be their night.
Well done to all 24 girls involved who at the end were very disappointed but there will be better days ahead. Thanks to manager Dave and his management team and to all the parents for their support.

HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

IMPORTANT- PLEASE READ! 

It’s hard to get things right ON the field all of the time but we owe it to ourselves and our club to try get it as right as possible OFF the field.

GOOD LUCK LIZZIE, CAITLIN AND DARAGH!!

Wishing our star u14 camogie goalkeeper Lizzie Walsh the best of luck as she represents Glynn NS, her club & county in Croke Park on Sunday as she lines out with a Wexford camogie selection at half time in the Leinster Senior hurling final. Extremely proud of you Lizzie!

Glynn Barntown player Caitlin Garnett has also been selected from Barntown N.S. to represent her school, club and county in Croke Park at half time in the Leinster Hurling final! How proud are we to have two club u14 camogie girls step out on that hallowed ground on Sunday? But wait …there’s more……

….Club u14 hurling star Daragh Murphy has ALSO been chosen by Barntown NS to represent school, club and county at half time on Leinster Hurling final day!

Daragh’s Dad Larry was a member of the 1996 All Ireland winning Wexford hurling team and it’s exciting to see Daragh following in his dad’s famous footsteps. Expect the Davin Stand to erupt when these youngsters take to the field as the three busloads of Glynn Barntown/Wexford supporters cheer their young clubmates on. The icing on the cake is that Daragh has also been given the joint honour of carrying the Bob O Keeffe cup on to the field to its resting place on the pedestal along with a young player from Galway. 💚💙💜💛
