Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
All Ireland Semi FinalWhat a day for the Deise in Croke Park as they overcame Munster Champions Cork to reach the All Ireland Final against Galway on the 3rd of September with Austin once again playing a pivotal role in the result, huge congratulations to all involved and to our players and back room staff involved in the squad.
Junior A HurlingOur Junior A Hurlers continued their impressive run of form of late with a clinical display against Ballygunner in Poleberry on Friday last, with Michael ‘Pugs” Power in scintillating form at centre forward putting over points at will and with a powerhouse display from Aaron Dempsey in midfield Sion were in the driving seat from the start, goals from Sean Ryan and Darren Finn in the second half put the game out of reach of Ballygunner with the scoreline of 2-22 to 1-13 in Sion’s favour.
Junior B HurlersThe Junior B hurlers qualified for the knockout stages after defeating Passage by a three point margin on Tuesday last, good performances from our young and experienced players to get to the next stage.
Deise DrawAugust’s Deise draw took place on Wednesday last and unfortunately we had no winners this time around, tickets for the next draws are still available from behind the bar or from Kenny Stafford.
ImprovementsDue to the re-surfacing of the driveway and car park access will be limited for the next number of days while the work is being carried out, please bear with us while we get these much needed improvements done to enhance the experience for our members and visitors alike.
