Our Junior Hurlers had a bye that weekend, but they began their journey for 2020 against regular opponents Fr O’Neills on a sunny Sunday afternoon at Castlelyons GAA Grounds.  Looking at the Carraig team sheet revealed the usual suspects in key positions around the field. Casey at 1, no longer the apprentice, whose fine form from 2019 continued apace. Driscoll at 3, Geaney at 6, the wily Dorgan at 9, playing his best hurling at the prime of his career, Sheehan the braveheart at 11 and Murphy the enigma at 14 all lined out. J Ahern and B Sheehan were two starters who had deserved their place due...

Muintir Carraig,  an chuimhin libh an seanfhocail “ is ait an mac an saol”? Is leir gur tuigimid an seanfhocial i rith na miosa seo chaite. D’athraigh Covid 19 cuma eile ar fad ar an sceil, ach dhiaidh ar dhiaidh, taimid ag dul I ngleic leis an bhfadhb. De dheasca sin, Caithfimid a bheith curamach ag bualadh le cheile, ag seasamh dha metre I leataobh agus an tabhachtach, ag nigh ar lamh go coitianta. Ta gach duine ar bis go bhfuil na pairc imeartha oscailte agus gach foireann ag cleachtadh agus ag traenail. Ach is e curam a ghlacadh gach duine a dhicheall a dheanamh chun congaracht shoisialta a choimead. To all club members and readers! We are back! As the Covid 19 pandemic changed the landscape of Ireland and the world, the GAA season was put on hold. Thankfully, as we are slowly returning to some normal social activity, we can look forward to hurling and football games for all age groups over the coming months. The protocol around games has required everybody to adhere to certain standards, and we are all aware of our responsibility in maintaining hand hygiene and social distancing when we are attending our local ( or foreign!!) GAA Grounds. So, Carraig na bhFear CLG hopes everybody stays safe over the Summer and Autumn months and enjoys whatever drama, thrills and spills, joy and maybe tears as the 2020 GAA season unfolds. And we aim to keep  our club members up to date on all our club’s happenings via Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter and your monthly Club newsletter, Gleoise na Carraige. Adult Club News: The...
