Mau Hanratty Golf Day

Friday June 6th will sees the Faughs hold the second ‘Mau Hanratty Golf Day’. The Golf Day which was an integral part of the very successful Faughs Gathering last year make a welcome return to Concra. The event marks the memory of one of the Faughs greats and Castleblayney Golf Club favourites Maurice “Mau” Hanratty. The singles stableford event will no doubt be a full timesheet from early morning until late evening as all Golfers aim to win the Mau Hanratty Cup kindly sponsored by the Hanratty family. Last August a fellow Muckno Street native Michael McHugh Junior coasted home with a great score to be the first winner of the event. Last year this was one of the great events in both the Castleblayney GAA and Golf worlds and this year will be no different. Tee reservations are limited but for those of you who would like a time for the Mau Hanratty Gold Day please try www.concrawood.ie or contact the Golf Club office at Concra Wood on 042 9749485.

Seniors –The Senior team had a relatively good week, they started with a good win over local neighbours Doohamlet last Wednesday night, followed by a hard earned draw versus Clontibret on Sunday afternoon. The performances have been improving over the last few weeks, with some very good passages of play in the last few league games. This Sunday at 2 o’clock, the senior team will make the short trip to Aughnamullen for the first round of the Senior Championship to play Ballybay. While Ballybay will go in as favourite, one would be foolish to write of the Famous Green and Gold at Championship time. Best of luck to everyone involved, can we ask that all supporters come out to cheer on the team. We will return to league action with a home game against Magherclone on Wednesday 23rd of May with a throw in time of 8pm. Continue reading

Seniors – The Senior team travelled to Ballybay last Wednesday night, in what was seen by many as a dress rehearsal for the Senior Championship first round fixture on the 18th of May. As one would expect the first fifteen minutes was a cagey affair, but then Ballybay produced a goal fest, which saw them score four goals.Trailing by ten points at half time, the Faughs had no option but to come out fighting and with three minutes to go,had the game back to three points. Ballybay then broke against the run of play to notch on three unanswered points and ran out winners by six points. The lads play have a home game against local neighbours Doohamlet on Wednesday 7th of May at 7.45pm before we travel to play Clontibret on Sunday May 11th at 2pm. Continue reading
