Davin Club urges supporters to cheer on their team in O’Riain Cup semi-final

Carrick Davin senior hurling team’s next match will be against Boherlahan in the Seamus O’Riain Cup semi-final.

Carrick Davin senior hurling team’s next match will be against Boherlahan in the Seamus O’Riain Cup semi-final.

The game is provisionally fixed for this Saturday in Fethard at 7pm.

After the drama of the past season, it is great to be able to go watch the team competing in another cup competition.

The Club hopes the game is well attended by Davin supporters. The senior team, its mentors and coaches have put in a hard effort over the past few months and it would be great to see those efforts rewarded with a good show of support.

The Club’s minors hurlers were due to play Fr Sheehy’s in the South semi-final last Sunday morning but the game was cancelled. The team now have to wait for the South Board to make a decision on the next fixture date.

Meanwhile, the U-16s earned a well deserved victory against Mullinahone in Davin Park last week. This team now await details of their last two matches where one win out of the two will qualify them for the semi-finals.

The U-14 team secured a good win against Fethard in their last group game last week. The date, time and venue for the semi-final are now awaited. It is very important that all training sessions are well attended.

The U-12 team were fixed to play the Swan last Friday but the game has been re-arranged for Wednesday evening in Davin Park. All players are requested to be at the clubhouse for 6pm.

The U-12s and U-10s continue hurling training every Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm. U-6s and U-8s will train every Tuesday from 7pm to 8pm.

Training for the girls will continue every Monday from 6pm to 7pm. New players are always welcome.

After the success of the GAA Cul camp, the Club has decided, with the help of the Tipperary GAA County Board, to run its own summer “Cool Camp” before schools reopen. The Club’s coaches have devised a great three day programme for all who attend.

All juvenile players from the age of 16 and under are welcome to join the camp.

If you are not involved in the Davin Club or even involved in another club, you are more than welcome to come and avail of the first class coaching that will be available.

The summer camp will run from Wednesday, August 22 to Friday, August 24.

All boys and girls, between the ages of 6 and 16, are welcome and you don’t have to be a member of the Davin Club to participate.

Three Tipperary hurling stars, Eoin Kelly Paul Curran and Lar Corbett will visit the camp to give tips on skills and advice on what it takes to get to the top in gaelic games.

Food will be provided for players each day and each individual will receive a training top with the Davin Club crest and their name printed on the back and a new sliothar.

Coaches will teach them the basic skills of gaelic games and on the final days there will be matches followed by a medals ceremony.

The fee will be E25 per child with a discount for families with more than one entrant. There are limited spaces available, so it will be on a first come first served basis. To book a place on the summer camp contact Nico at (086) 372 8184 or Robert at (086) 0899137.

The Club lotto jackpot prize wasn’t won last week. Numbers drawn were 1, 4, 12 and 26. One match three winner received €200.

Meanwhile, all in the Davin Club wish Alvin Coady of Ahenny a speedy recovery following his recent accident.
