Men’s Team

Last Sunday Carrick kept their Connacht J1C campaign on the road with a hard fought 18-13 win over Ballina RFC.  Carrick had built a healthy half time lead but had to withstand a second half fight back, but six Kevin Coffey penalties kept the visitors at arms length, securing all four points.

Our next league fixture is fixed provisionally versus Sligo next Sunday 17th November at Fortress Castlecarra, kick off 2.30pm.  This fixture however could be subject to change.

Women’s Team

The Connacht Women’s League campaign of the Canterbury Warriors (Carrick / Longford) suffered a setback on the road last Sunday, going down to NUIG 10-0. However we are still comfortably in second place and well on course for a place in the Connacht final.

Mini’s & Youth’s

Training continues as usual to make sure we fix the areas that need fixing, so there wasn’t much to report this week . . . NOT!!  For the first time ever, our Mini and Youth section have exceeded 130 players!!  We also have recruited new Coaches to the club to assist our players for the future.  Well done everybody, especially our new players and coaches, who are very welcome to the club.

Your Club, Your Country Draw

Your Club, Your Country books and ticket stubs must be returned to Aidan Lenehan this Saturday in order to be returned to the IRFU for the draw.  Parents are being asked to please buy a ticket before the draw ends.  The entire cost of the ticket goes directly to the club.  There are no administration or prize deductions taken from the ticket price.  Please, please, please support.

Subs & Registrations

A big thank you to the majority of parents who have submitted subs, registrations, Club/ IRFU Forms and Birth Certs.  We would hope to gather anything outstanding by the end of this month.  Parents will be texted if there is anything outstanding.  Thanks for playing your part.

Shannon Gaels Ladies

And finally the club wishes the very best of luck to the players and supporters of Connacht Ladies Junior Club champions Shannon Gaels who play Munster Champions Na Gaeil in Tralee next Sunday 17th November.

The fairness of having you make that long journey to the Kingdom is questionable.  However the club is confident that you will be able to perform with the same class & confidence that has marked your season so far and that Connacht have very worthy representatives next Sunday.  The very best of luck ladies.
