21st June 2011

Both sides have a week off this week as Cavan play in the qualifiers.  It will at least give the Seniors a chance to stop the rot as they come of the back of two away defeats in four days. First up was a defeat to Lavey by 1-9 to 0-10 last Wednesday, and then on Saturday a visit to Virginia say another defeat, this time by 1-12 to 0-10.

The side has now slipped to fifth in the table but with plenty of shocks occurring, the team is still well palced to make the semi-finals with a good finish to the campaign.  Next up is a home match v Ballinagh on Saturday 2nd July @ 7.30pm with the championship starting on Sunday 24th July in Breffni Park @ 8pm when we play Mullahoran.

While the Seniors have now lost two on the bounce, the Juniors halted their poor run, with an impressive 0-12 to 0-10 victory against Ramor before the Senior match on Saturday. They remain third in the division and, like the Seniors, nicely placed to challenge for the semi-finals.  They face a trip of LAcken to play the opening round of the Junior B on Wednesday Aug 10th.

Kingscourt Stars GAA is proud to announce that Shane Connaughton’s acclaimed play “The Pitch” will finish its nationwide tour in Kingscourt. The club have arranged for the Matt Talbot Hall to host this brilliant production on Friday 24th June @ 8.30pm .

The play centres around the lead character (Philly – performed by Shane himself) who lives on a picturesque site up in the mountains in West Cavan that local developers want to build on.  At the same time, the local GAA club are preparing for the County Final which they are looking to win for the first time since the 40’s, when Philly was the star of the team (until he missed the final through suspension).

What unfolds over the following few hours is both humorous and touching and will have you fully engaged throughout. It is highly recommended to anyone who has any interest in either GAA, Irish Culture or life in rural Ireland, both now and over the past half a century.  

Tickets are just €10 and are available from Pat Faulkner or any committee member.  A great night is guaranteed and all proceeds will go to the club’s attempts to further increase the Scór involvement in the club. An Oscar winner performing in Kingscourt. Do you want to miss it???


The First Club Newsletter (in a long time anyway) issued last week. It features updates on every club team along with some pen pics on two players, a look back to 1981 and some quiz questions.  The newsletter is available from each team management as well as a number of shops around the town. To those of you who don’t get a hold of it, you can look at the online version by just clicking here.

The Minors & 16’s are back training after the exams ahead of their various championships.  The 13s have started their championship (losing their opening match to Crosserlough) but I don’t have any other fixtures yet. The 8s & 10s continue their regular blitzes. Finally the Girls U-13s have started their league but, like the Boys 13s, I don’t have any fixtures yet.

The winning numbers in last week’s lotto were 06, 23, 25 & 27 (Bonus 19). For the FOURTH week running there was no jackpot or Match 3’s. Next week’s jackpot will now be €6,200 (with the Match 3 prizes being a massive €1,000). The draw will take place on Sunday 26th June in The Wishing Well. To enter (and with €1000 available for Match 3, why wouldn’t you!), just click here.
