CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Croom GAA Annual Golf Classic:
Croom GAA Club held the annual golf classic in Adare Manor last Friday and much credit must go to all our members and friends for their great support. We had over 80 golfers enjoy a great day with a lovely meal afterwards. The Official GUI winner was Johnny Fitzgeralds team with Mark O’Riordans team Runner Up. The Non GUI winner wasGabriel Cosgraves team with Conor Laffens team Runner Up. Damian Moloneys team was 3rd, and Mickey Cahill’s team was 4th. The Nearest the Pin was won by Stephen Moore, and the Longest Drive was won by Brian Duggan. We would like to thank those who sponsored tee boxes & especially Padraig Broderick of Spar for the goodie bags. Thanks also to Billy Lee for providing the bottled water, and Lee Harrington, always great supporters of Croom GAA.
We continue our training on Tuesdays and Thursdays and play Cappamore in the county league this Saturday night at 7.30pm in Cappamore.
Junior A Football:
Last week we played Kilteely/Dromkeen in the semifinal of the county league. Having beaten Bruree and Ballylanders in the south league and a challenge match against Bruff, the team was going fairly well, but we knew this would be a step up against one of the favourites for the county championship. Kilteely/Domkeen were well up for this and used the ball well, punishing Croom for any errors or turnovers. They scored 2 goals in the first half and we were not capitalising on our possesion when we attacked. We started the second half much better and were getting the upper hand clawing back the deficit, but conceeded another goal and the game fizzled out on a 3.11 to 0.10. We now turn our attention to the first round of the championship against Oola the weekend after next.
