Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
New SponsorYou may have seen our Seniors wearing their new Pinergy sponsored jerseys in last weeks’ Championship match, we had a visit from Enda Gunnell, the CEO of Pinergy during the week where he formally made the presentation, pictured is Kenny Stafford along with members of the Senior team and management receiving the jersey from Enda Gunnell.
ResultsIt was quite a busy week for games with some notable results on the board, Under 13 V Sacred Heart 7-11 to 2-06, Under 15 V Roanmore 5-12 to 1-06, Under 11 V De La Salle 4-13 to 1-01, Under 12 V Roanmore 0-05 to 6-07, Junior A V Kilmacthomas 1-17 to 1-11 good result on the night when the game could have gone either way setting up a quarter final with Ballydurn, Minor V Roanmore 1-17 to 1-10, and finally Junior B V De La Salle losing out by the minimum 2-14 to 0-19 although previous results meant they qualified for the knockout stage next week.
CamogieTraining for the 4-10 group continues Mondays 6-7 in the Astroturf while our older girls train Tuesday 6-7pm.
Huge well done to our Under 10 girls who took part in a blitz in Mooncoin on Saturday morning whilst debuting their new jerseys from Balon Sports sponsored by Tom Murphy Car Sales. They played fantastic and came away with a draw and two wins. Congratulations to all involved.

Deise DrawThe 2020 Deise Draw is now scheduled to start on August 26th and we hope all our members will sign up once more as this year especially the revenue stream for the club will be much needed. We have been also advised that there will still be the standard six draws. Prize money hopefully won’t be affected but may need to slightly adjusted if numbers are a lot lower than last year.
DevelopmentWe would ask those that have not yet paid the annual membership of €150 which includes entry in to the Deise Draw to do so please.
We would ask as many members as possible to join the Development Donation scheme, at this current time our only revenue is the scheme and membership. Anyone wishing to pay membership or join the Donation Scheme please contact any committee member.
