DROMIN/ATHLACCA GAA CLUB NOTES
Last weekend saw the opening round of Championship hurling. A weekend we all long awaited. Our Premier Intermediate Hurlers travelled to Kilmallock to battle Glenroe. This game had everything. It was a physical game with passion in abundance and some great scores. Glenroe had an ideal start and scored 1:02 in the opening three minutes after Brian O Connell scored their goal. Dromin Athlacca found their feet and within six minutes leveled the score after David Breen scored a fantastic goal. Glenroe pulled ahead and had a five
point lead by half time. Inside five minutes of the second half David Reidy and Sean O Leary narrowed this lead to three points. David Breen rattled the net early in the second half
following some great interplay leaving just the minimum between the teams. Another point from David Reidy brought the scores level. It was a nail biting finish that saw Glenroe win by just one point. Our lads gave it their all and we look forward to another skilled performance

We would like to thank each mentor, player and parent who have put in tremendous work in adhering to Covid 19 guidelines and ensuring the safety of our club. Please remember to confirm health status before each training session and match which can be done on
www.returntoplay.ie. Also that each player has personal water bottle as per guidelines. As we continue with the delayed Phase 4 of Covid Restrictions the indications are that each
Championship game will be “all ticket” for adults and children alike. The club will be allocated approximately 50 tickets for the upcoming second round of Premier Intermediate
Championship which sees Dromin Athlacca play Bruff. Tickets are 8e each. No concessions. Tickets will be available for Dromin Athlacca GAA Senior Club members. If you wish to
purchase a ticket for this match, please give your name directly to a club member on or before Wednesday July 22nd. A draw can then be made for tickets. It is envisioned that
intercounty games will become an “ all ticket” affair and same club terms as 2019 will then apply. These are extremely uncertain times and extremely difficult situations for clubs and
committees to work through, which we will endeavour to do.
