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.

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.

Our u8 camogie team are thrilled to have been presented with their new gear at our 20 year anniversary celebrations on Saturday- the set of team jerseys and individual socks and shorts were very kindly sponsored by Nevins partnership to whom we extend a huge thank you.

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.

Everyone in Glynn Barntown GAA, Coiste, Camogie and Ladies Football Clubs extends their deepest sympathies to the Whelan family, Barntown on the sad passing of their mother and grandmother Mary. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
