Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Junior FootballThe Junior Footballers played Roanmore on Friday night last and even though the lads scored 5-07 the near neighbours ran out two point winners proving that points really win games with a score of 4-12, next game is scheduled for a couple of weeks.
All Ireland QualifiersIt was heart stopping stuff in Thurles on Saturday last when the Waterford Senior Hurlers finally put the defeats of the past decade behind them to defeat Kilkenny in a championship game since 1959, well done to all involved and best of luck in the quarter finals in two weeks time.
Darts LeagueFollowing on from the success of our darts tournament we entered a darts team representing the club for the 2017 Tommy Roberts memorial tournament. Our team won the plate semi final last beating the Grattan ‘B’ team comprehensively on a score of 7-1 in the process qualifying for next week’s final, So we’re in the final next week, best of the luck to the team of Kenny”Snakebite”Stafford, Dots “The Dazzler”O’Mahony, Eoin “Jackpot”Swift and Peter”The Power” Roche.
