Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Juvenile HurlingThe season is starting to get into full swing for our young hurlers with games coming thick and fast each week, on Tuesday night the Under 12’s got their City League off to a winning start when Mullinavat were the visitors to he club, facing a bigger team our lads ran their hearts out and were deserving of their 3-06 to 2-02 win, on Saturday morning one of our Under 9 teams played De La Salle while unfortunately the opponents of the other team weren’t available, well done to all involved on their winning starts.
Moving OnBest wishes to Brian Sinnott who is moving on to greener pastures from the bar in the club, Brian is a well known and liked character and will be missed from the centre, good luck to Brian from everyone in Mount Sion in his new job.
Deepest sympathies to the Quinn family on the sad passing of Peggy during the week, Peggy was a great Mount Sion woman for many years and will be sadly missed, to her husband Frankie, sons and daughters and extended family we offer our condolences, ar Dheis De go raibh a h-anam.
