Annual Mary McGrath Table Quiz – Friday 18th March 2022

Half of the proceeds of The Annual Mary McGrath Table Quiz normally in aid of St. Brigid’s Camogie Club, this year was decided to go towards UNICEF which help Ukrainian aid during these awful times. St. Brigid’s Camogie Club also matched this donation to UNICEF. Below is the acknowledgment letter from UNICEF. Thanks to everyone who supported us in anyway.

St.Brigid’s CC,

I just wanted to drop you a note from Ukraine to say a huge thank you for your generous donation of €1124.00 to help children like 15-month-old Artur. I met him and his family when I visited an air raid shelter in Lviv. This is the second time they’ve had to flee their home because of the violence, so the fact that people like you care about them means so much.

To a mother at her wit’s end after travelling on foot with her small children in the bitter cold for three days, your gift of clean water is so precious. To a child who’ll spend yet another night sleeping in an underground bunker instead of their bed at home, your gift of a blanket is so comforting.

Thanks to the amazing help of people like you in Ireland and across the world, UNICEF has already delivered several tons of hygiene products, including diapers, disinfectant, and wipes to a temporary refugee centre at the Palanca crossing point on Ukraine’s border with Moldova.

With your help, we won’t stop until every child is reached. Thank you again.

James Elder
UNICEF Spokesperson, Ukraine

Senior/Junior Team Management News 2022

Chairman’s Message:

On behalf of GBC I would like to thank Eugene, Adrian and Grace for the tremendous work they did last year with our teams. Sadly, for 2022 they won’t be on board with us. We have all benefited enormously from their efforts, Eugene last year, Adrian since 2019 and Grace since 2009. They have earned our respect, leave us as friends and will always be most welcome in Tom Ryall Park. Thank you, all in GBC wish you the best of luck in the future.

Thanks must also go to Micheal, Joc and Paul for their efforts with our Junior A team over the past two years. For 2022 they will be involved with our Juvenille teams. Thank you men.

GBC are delighted to announce that John O’Neill is coming on board as manager of our Senior team. James and Dougie are staying on board as selectors. The three of them are currently recruiting a backroom team and will be laying out their plans to you all in the near future. FYI, our new gym will be commissioned on 11th February.

Forecast Winner 2021

Winner of this year’s Forecast Competition, Mary Irish. Also pictured Club Chairman Dave O’Neill and ticket seller Niall Egan.

Mary, originally from Hugginstown, is a life-long supporter of Carrickshock and now lives in Ballyfoyle, beat off 2,200 entrants to come out on top and thus earns the right to be regarded as the real expert in Club Hurling in Kilkenny. Well done Mary!

Timber auction – Sunday 26th September 2021

We held a very successful Timber Auction on Sunday 26th September to raise vital funds for the running of our club. We had 45 loads of timber, 10 bales of hay, 6 bales of straw and a load of lime. This was made possible by our hard-working committee, our ever ready year-on-year donors along with our many customers and not least our helpers who delivered the loads to the customers homes. Huge thanks to all the above people and we hope to see you all in 2022.

U8 Camogie News

The U8 camogie season came to a smashing end last week! It was never in doubt that these girls would hit the target and find lots of treats! From the very first training session to now, their striking, blocking, scoring, defending and team work has improved tenfold and best of all they do it with a smile on their faces and lots of giggles 😀 So to finish up, they deservedly had lots of treats and fun games thanks to Anna, Alan, Moira and Adrienne and pretty snazzy new water bottles and grips thanks to Gearoid. Keep up all the practice, a super bunch of girls.
