Our 14’s did us proud once again last Thursday when after their county championship semi- final went to extra time Monday evening we were forced out to play the final Thursday evening in Duggan park Ballinasloe against Pearses. As usual this panel of players gave it their all and put on a massive display of hurling in the first half and went in at the break 2-02 to 0—02  up and should have been more. As we expected due to fatigue our lads tired rapidly in the second half and Pearses hit their purple patch and they took control of the game and threw everything they had at us. True to form our great young lads soaked up the pressure and when backs were to walls they answered and ticked every box needed and finished with a flurry of goals to end convincing winners on score line of 5-05 to 2-06. Great credit has to go to every member of this panel they’ve had a hectic few weeks since being crowned Feile champions a few weeks back but they’ve shown great commitment and dedication. They also have National Feile to look forward to which takes place 8-10th June and we wish them well. Special mention to Daire Wynne who is a big part of our panel, who attended his granny’s funeral on Thursday afternoon but was first man in the dressing room for the final on Thursday evening, well done Daire and sincere sympathies to you and your family on your loss.


Panel was:

Shane Forde, Cuan Lennon, Kevin Maher, Oisin Murphy, Niall Mannion, Jamie Cosgrove, Daire Wynne, Kian Flaherty, Alex Boyle, Darragh Maloney, Michael Keary, Niall Mannion, Olin Murray, Dean Collins, Michael Killarney, Patrick Balfe, Cian Quirke. Management: Jerry Quirke, Denis Byrne, Declan Molloy.

 

Our junior B hurlers got their championship off to a great start last Sunday when we hosted Rahoon/ Newcastle at home and won convincingly with some super hurling played. Final score was 6-15 to 1-07. Well done to panel and management.

 

Our U12 & 13’s welcomed Clan na Gael Dublin to the pitch last sat for a display game, our contact was James Dolly formerly Newtown and the great Dolly family. It was a great afternoon to see the pitch full of kids playing and most importantly to see them all having fun getting to know each other after the games over a cup of tea. Sincere thanks to all parents who supplied food and refreshments for our guests. Thanks to James Dolly for facilitating.

Abbeyknockmoy cyclists all geared up to make a brake from Croker.

posted 14 Apr 2017, 04:46 by abbeyknockmoy gaa

Abbeyknockmoy cyclists all geared up to make a brake from Croker.

Calling all Galwegians to cycle from Croke Park to Abbeyknockmoy.

While Abbeyknockmoy hurlers are well known throughout Galway as being a club that does its talking on the field they will attempt to do something different on the old Dublin to Galway road this August 19th 2017 when they cycle over 200km from Croke Park to Abbeyknockmoy as part of their main fundraising initiative for the year. Cancer Care West are also on board as a partner and will get a share of the money raised to keep their own fantastic charity work in the spotlight.

The club is encouraging cyclists of any and all levels to form a team of at least four people to cycle a relay of 50km each. As part of this team, all members are each asked to raise €250 minimum for the club and Cancer Care West.

Sponsorship cards are available from any club officer. Ring Declan on 086-8159309 or get through to Abbeyknockmoy hurling on Facebook @abbeyknockmoyhurlingclub.

Each participant will get a tee shirt for their participation on the day. Design and sponsors are being finalised and this will be launched later in the summer.

Tomás Cooley, PRO of Abbeyknockmoy Hurling club said, “Members can do as many miles as they like if they feel up to it but most importantly we stress that this is not a race but rather a fun day out for members of the club. It is also a great incentive for people to get fit for the summer ahead.”

He added further, “The cycle will be fully supported with broom wagons, lead cars, food, drinks, pit-stops, Garda escort through Phoenix Park and a great night will be held after the cycle in Abbey or Monivea. No one will be left behind on or off the bike!”

Commenting further, Cooley says that “We hope this is a fundraiser that all locals in Abbeyknockmoy and other parishes get involved in and we would love for people to get involved in cycling due to this initiative. Cycling is a great way to keep fit and perhaps people could come together to train also. We attempted to contact current world champion, Peter Sagan and multiple Tour de France winner, Chris Froome to do the cycle but all calls are going to voicemail. Maybe they’re afraid of being re-graded to junior,” added Tomás.

Cooley finally says that, “We at Abbeyknockmoy Hurling club are very appreciative of everyone who has supported us over the years and continue to do so. We’ve had a great couple of years on the field of play and now we hope to do the same off it via the old N6. It’s a fundraiser that ticks all the boxes such as money for the club, money for charity, a great day and night out, camaraderie on and off the bike, enhancing your fitness and it’s a route that any cyclist would want on their CV”.

Stephen Roche once famously said “In cycling you can put all your money on one horse”. Well in the Croker to Abbeyknockmoy cycle you can put your money on every horse and help you local club and cancer charity. We hope you can help us make this the superb event it deserves to be on 19th August.

Pictured below are club member David Staunton on the left and Chairman Gerry Flaherty on the right during our Croker to Abbey cycle launch on Friday night.

10th of April 2017 Club Notes

posted 12 Apr 2017, 06:45 by abbeyknockmoy gaa   [ updated 12 Apr 2017, 06:47 ]

Seniors had a narrow one point loss to Kilnadeema-Leitrim at the weekend losing by 0-16 to 0-15. A draw was surely the fairer result but KL got a last minute winner and unfortunately a Paul Flaherty shot from way out the field trailed just wide to leave Abbey disappointed with this defeat.

Abbey were losing 9-7 at half time and at times in the first half it looked as if KL were going to have a bigger lead but Abbey with four points from Paul and one each from Jason Flaherty, Paul Cooley and Coleman Maher finished the half strongly. A double save from Dean Keary on his first championship start was crucial in repelling KL also.

The second half was nip tuck as well but Abbey could not get in front. Points from the two Flaherty’s, and Danny Mullins seemed to have secured a draw for Abbey but it was not to be.

Overall, a very good performance from the team who were missing a few players from the last few years. The group is already looking very tight with Moycullen’s draw with Athenry and a big win for Ahascragh over Killimordaly.

Team: Dean Keary, Philip Muldowney, Brian O’Donnell, David Carton, Trevor Mullins, Damian Rooney, Caeolm Mulry, Brian Flaherty (0-1), Coleman Maher, Paul Cooley (0-1), Paul Flaherty (0-9, 4f’s, 1 x 65), Fionnán Garvey, Danny Mullins (0-2), Eoin Blade, Jason Flaherty (0-1). Subs: Kenny Garvey.

Minor championship is next weekend. Fixtures to be confirmed.

U14 championship V Gort was on Monday 10th in Abbey. Result next week.

U-13 and U-12 training is on Saturday 5-6pm. New players welcome. Contact Adrian at
0877708056.

U10 training Friday 6-7pm. All welcome as usual.

Underage training started for 2017 last Friday @ 6.15pm on a lovely sunny evening. We had great numbers in all grades, with a lot of newcomers in the U6's and they were all mad for action!!!

Training for U6 & U8's continue every Friday 6.15-7.15pm. All new players welcome. Registration is mandatory for all ages at €20 per child.

There was no jackpot winner of last week's Crumlin Park House & Resource Centre Sponsored draw. Numbers drawn were 8, 13, 18 &25. There was one match 3, Grace Treacy Laraghhill. Gerry Flaherty claimed the sellers prize. Lotto is now at €16,900 and takes place in the Woodside Bar, so we encourage everyone to buy a ticket every week.

Membership fees are as follows for the year: Please make sure to pay any club officer or team manager.

Adult Player €50.
Non-playing/Social Adult €20.
Student Membership €30.

Family Membership (All children under 18 years of age) €100. Juvenile Players €20.

With Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders out of the way it’s time for AHC to save cycling with their own version of the “Hell of the North” with our cycle from Croker to Abbey on August 19th. Sponsorship cards are now doing the rounds and we encourage everyone to get involved in any way large or small in this. While it is the main fundraiser for the club this year, it is also in conjunction with Cancer Care West so we hope you can support both causes.

We are looking for teams of 4 to cycle 50km each. Individuals are also welcome. We ask that each person signed up raises €250 minimum between now and August. You can register your interest through Facebook or contact any club officer.

There will be plenty of stops on this cycle as it is not a race. The plan is to leave Croke Park at 8am and take our time via the old Galway road. This is the first time we have attempted such a fundraiser and we are delighted to be able to help Galway Hospice also.

Club will provide free buttock cream for those not too used to the bike for a few years!!! But seriously this is a great cycle for any cyclist to have on their CV and it will be a great day and night afterwards in Abbeyknockmoy.

Seniors played two good challenges last week against Castlegar & Pearses in preparation for first round of championship next Sunday when we meet Kilnadeema-Leitrim in Ballinasloe @ 4.30pm.

Seniors were presented with their medals for the successful intermediate campaign two years ago. Thanks to all who came along for a good night
Minor championship V Sarsfields was postponed due to water logged pitch in Bullaun. Junior league was once again postponed V Athenry.

Our U14's were involved in Feile action last weekend where they welcomed Ballindereen to Abbey on Friday evening and put on a great display of hurling and ran out easy winners. The big game of the group saw Abbey pitted against Castlegar in Ballindereen on Saturday where the winner was fancied to progress to semi final in Craughwell on Saturday. Abbey started the game brightly against a strong wind and went 1-01 to no score up having played all the hurling in Castlegar half but when the first ball to land in our square was pulled on by the Abbey defence the referee signaled for a penalty which was duly put away and seemed to stun our players. Castlegar quickly got a second fortuitous goal also and at halftime the score was 3-01 to 1-01. With still plenty to play for with the aid of a strong wind Abbey just couldn't get into their normal rhythm in the second half and Castlegar were keeping the scoreboard ticking with the frees they were given. But true Abbey style they never lay down and even though they were struggling all day to hit top gear they still hit the net twice but in the end were always playing catch up and the game ended out hopes of qualification on score line of 3-05 to 3-01. That's sport and most importantly we wish a speedy recovery to a young man who unfortunately missed out on feile weekend due to having his appendix operation on the previous Tues and everyone wishes Thady the very best.

Sincere thanks to Padraic & Eileen McGann for their generous s/ship and for their hospitality after the game.

Many thanks to all parents who helped out Friday and over the weekend and for their continued support as always.

Our underage hurling training starts next Friday 7th April @ 6.15-7.15pm, with registration taking place that evening. We welcome all U6 & U8's to come along. Queries 086 8159309.

There were three match 3's, Padraic Broderick, Moya Burke & Tommie Higgins, Stamford, Connecticut. Lotto is now at €16800 and takes place in Moran's Bar, so we encourage everyone to buy a ticket every week.

Senior training Tuesday and Friday at 7:30. Senior team had a tough day at the office losing to Gort at the weekend by 6-23 to 1-5. A lot of players were missing through injuries and Galway duty but all the damage was done on the first half with five goals from Gort. While early in the year it is a worrying defeat and we hope we can pick things up fairly quickly. Next game will be against Sarsfields in Abbey this Sunday.

Juniors are playing Athenry in Athenry on Sunday. Check papers for time. Please look to Facebook and the Notes in local paper for underage fixtures. U-14 beat Liam Mellowes in first round of championship. Next up is Salthill in Abbey. U-13 training is on Saturday 5-6pm and Monday 7-8. New players welcome. Contact Adrian at 0877708056. No Under 10 training this Friday due to St.Patrick’s day. Find a good gable end for the week!

Last week we acknowledged the sad passing of Mattie Treacy, a long time dedicated club member, player, mentor & supporter of Abbeyknockmoy Hurling. From his playing days in the 1960's & 70's where he excelled on the hurling fields of Galway to management of our under-age teams and adult teams in the late 70's and 80's. As a true club member Mattie held several club officer ships over the years and was an avid fundraiser in helping to develop the club grounds from a green field site in the '70's to its present status. He instilled in our youth all that is good in sport and his devotion carried through to his own family who are also avid supporters of the club with Martin holding a number of club officer roles over the years. Despite his fading health in recent years, he continued to support the club teams and his presence at the County, Connaught & All Ireland final in 2016 was an indication of his love of the club and proud of its achievements. He may be gone but not forgotten as his legacy along with so many more is steeped in our club history. On behalf of Abbeyknockmoy club members & supporters we offer to Maureen, family and extended family members our deepest sympathies at Mattie's sad passing.

There was no jackpot or match 3 winner of last week's Crumlin Park House & Resource Centre Sponsored draw. Numbers drawn were 8, 21, 24 & 30. Sellers prize went to Thomas Shaughnessy. Lotto is now at €16,500 so we encourage everyone to buy a ticket every week. Remember, the club runs a very handy direct debit facility where your €2.00 per week is automatically entered for 52 weeks. There are two weeks free with this facility. Next week's draw takes place in McGann's Bar

We are hosting a fundraiser and a charity cycle in aid of Cancer Care West on Saturday 19th August from Croke Park to Abbeyknockmoy. This promises to be a wonderful occasion and we ask any person who has ever sat on a bike to give this a go!

We are looking for teams of 4 to cycle 50km each or whatever suits each rider. Individuals are also welcome. We ask that each person signed up raises €200-250 minimum between now and August. You can register your interest through Facebook or contact any club officer.
There will be plenty of stops on this cycle as it is not a race. The plan is to leave Croke Park at 8am and take our time via the old Galway road. This is the first time we have attempted such a fundraiser and we are delighted to be able to help Cancer care West also.
Snacks and drinks will be provided on the way but obviously have your own food too. There will be lead cars and broom wagons as with all charity cycles so no one will be left behind!
Club will provide free buttock cream for those not too used to the bike for a few years!!! But seriously this is a great cycle for any cyclist to have on their CV and it will be a great day and night afterwards in Abbeyknockmoy.
More details to follow in the coming weeks with sponsorship cards, jerseys etc all being printed.
Our #croker2abbey charity fun cycle meeting is on tonight Wednesday at 9pm in the clubhouse for anyone interested.
