Thomas McCurtains Club Notes

March 11, 2019

Well done to our Camogie team who sent 25 players in 3 teams up to the Erin Go Bragh 7s Tournament at the weekend. The teams were named after Tómas Mac Curtain's daughters, Siobhán, Síle and Eilis. Team Eilis won the Plate Final and Sinead Curtain won the Plate Player of the Tournament. Its a great achievement to field so many players this early in the year.

The Footballers travelled up to St Albans to play a challenge against St Colmcilles. It was an entertaining contest played in windy conditions. Well done to the 7 players making their debuts for the club. A huge thanks to St Colmcilles for the great hospitality afterwards.

Hard luck to Kieran Dowling, Jimmy Byrne and the London Hurlers who lost out to Mayo at the weekend.

Our own Hurlers start training on the astroturf in The Rivergate Centre, Minter Road, Barking IG11 0FJ. Training continues as usual for all other teams.

History & Centenary

In preparation for our upcoming centenary in 2020 the club has formed a History and Centenary Sub Committee. The aim of this committee is to investigate the long and illustrious history of Thomas McCurtains GAA Club, document it and form a comprehensive collection of documents detailing the Club’s history.  If anyone would like to join the committee please contact Richard Ellis on 07803 519 394

We are reaching out to past members. We would love to hear your memories and any interesting stories you have.
